Windows Phone Market accelerates its growth. Today there are more than 300,000 apps & games available for download in the Store and the number is growing rapidly each month. Microsoft revealed in July there were around 270 000 apps and games.

The combined effect of a variety of apps and low-cost devices could help Windows Phone grow in many price sensitive markets.
