    Ok so I didnt cheat in my ipod or Apple, but I did pick up a zune hd 32g. For some reason the price dropped from 280 to like 220. Anyway everyone knows that the app store or marketplace is pretty much lacking. Now that the Windows 7 phones are out do you think that Microsoft will focus more on apps and developement? Anyone have a zune and knows what I'm talking about?

    I had an 80gb Zune, then traded it for an iPod Classic 120gb

    But yea, um.. the market will get bigger for sure, but I think, right now, developers don't have motivation to develop for that platform because it's so small. If more people start buying their products, then maybe developers will want to develop for that platform. Or if maybe Microsoft offers some sort of incentive to 'lure' them in.

    Like I said, once more people start using those products, developers will make stuff. Plus, I believe Gameloft is already making some games for WP7.

    Being a apple application maker is a profitable business.People can't afford going into a device or company that won't make people profit.

    So most likely it won't have as many developers.
