We spoke at great length about how Microsoft will be offering apps on the Windows Phone 7 Series Marketplace, but until now hadn't seen exactly what it'd look like. Pocket Now has grabbed the goods, which you can see underneath.

The opening screen, below, has the different options for the Marketplace: apps, games, music and podcasts. The first two words, Contoso and Fabrikam, are placeholders for Microsoft—fictional company names they often use.

Once you choose applications on the Marketplace opening screen, the several screens will display the featured apps, the newest, and most popular. Square thumbnails represent each app, and the whole UI is very much in-keeping with the rest of the OS. [Peter Wissinger via Pocket Now]

Microsoft can try to make its app store look pretty, but its just covering over the embarrassing fact that there aren't many apps in it.

Windows Mobile 6.5 = 700 apps in the app store (compared to Android's 50,000 apps, and iPhone's 140,000 apps)

Windows Phone 7 = zero apps. Microsoft has trouble attracting developers, so there may not be very many more apps when it is released.
