    Microsoft to shutter the Windows Marketplace for Mobile 6.x today


    It's the end of an era as Microsoft closes down the 'Windows Marketplace for Mobile 6.x' today, leaving Windows Mobile 6.x owners unable to download or update their purchases.

    From Microsoft's official notification...

    Beginning May 22, 2012, the Windows Mobile 6.x Marketplace service will no longer be available. Starting on this date, you will no longer be able to browse, buy or download applications directly on your Windows Mobile 6.x phone using the Windows Mobile 6.x Marketplace application and service.

    Applications and games acquired from the Windows Mobile 6.x Marketplace service installed on your Windows Mobile 6.x phone will continue to work after the service is discontinued on May 22, 2012. However, additional downloads of these applications and games from the Windows Mobile 6.x Marketplace service will no longer be available.

    Take Action

    Microsoft recommends you review the applications or games installed on your Windows Mobile 6.x phone and install any available updates in advance of the Windows Mobile 6.x Marketplace service shut-down on May 22, 2012.

    Please note: All phone data, including applications acquired through the Windows Mobile 6.x Marketplace service, data and user-specific settings, will be deleted from your Windows Mobile 6.x phone in the event that your phone is wiped or "hard reset." Any data on a removable storage card, if present, will also be deleted if your phone is wiped or "hard reset".

    Basically, if you are using Windows Mobile 6.x still with apps purchased from the Marketplace... make sure you have a backup!

    Or, in simpler Microsoft speak, upgrade to Windows Phone NOW! :)

    Are you still using Windows Mobile (and I know a lot of you are)... tell us how the shutdown will (or will not) affect you!
