Microsoft have released operational details of the Windows Marketplace for Mobile, including fees for developers hoping to distribute their applications via the system. Both paid and free software will be available, with a $99 yearly registration fee for developers; 70-percent of app revenue will go to the developer themselves.
The yearly registration fee includes up to five submissions to the Marketplace; subsequent submissions are charged at $99 per app. Student developers can bypass the fees by signing up to the Microsoft DreamSpark program. As for the price of each individual app, that can be set by the developer themselves.
