Windows Phone Marketplace Now Available in the Philippines!

Good news to all Windows Phone owners in the Philippines! Microsoft has just flipped the switch today and now, the Marketplace is now officially available in our country! That means we may now use our local credit cards to buy apps and games for our Windows Phones!

To be able to access the Philippine Marketplace, you need to update your phone to Windows Phone 7.5, which obviously you should have by now. Marketplace is now also available in Argentina, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Peru.

But Microsoft needs to work on a very serious (or not) issue. A lot of Windows Phone users selected different countries just to access the Marketplace, for example, I selected the US for my account. At the moment, there is no option to change it to another country, i.e. the Philippines. I hope Microsoft will consider on taking requests to change it.

Happy apping! :D
