Windows Mobile Marketplace Gets Axed Today

Today comes the end of an era as the Windows Mobile 6.x marketplace will go offline once and for all. Those of you still carrying the HTC HD2 and other Windows Mobile smartphones will no longer have access to that marketplace.

Of course, whatever you have on hand on your device will keep on ticking, but we expect much of those apps wont be supported for future updates seeing that, you know, there is that new Windows Phone 7.5 marketplace closing in on 100,000 apps and thus a much move vibrant future for developers to take their talents to.

But, for those nostalgic few still with working handsets, you’ll get the experience to see what happens when an ecosystem ceases to be, first-hand.
