"I’m pleased to announce a unified registration experience for both Windows Store and Windows Phone developers, available at a lower cost. As a result of these changes, Windows Store developers are now also Windows Phone developers, and Windows Phone developers are also Windows Store developers. Welcome all!"


Official Announcement


"Accounts now cost $99 for corporations and $19 for individuals, while students can register for free."

Just reporting this for our windows 8/windows phone developers in the MB commmunity or any prospective developers looking to develop for these platforms.

Yeah, its good news in my opinion.

Its the first step to merging the platforms api wise and allowing for cross platform apps in a much more meaningful way.

I wonder if this will apply to apps developed for the X1 as well. I know its part of this whole merging stuff, but I don't know if that is happening yet.

Also tagged with one or more of these keywords: windows phone, development, windows 8
