Students to be able to develop apps for SkyMarket for free!

imageKudos to Paolo for getting to this one first.

Simply put when Windows Mobile 6.5 launches an accompanying app store dubbed Windows Marketplace for Mobile (codename SkyMarket) will also launch.

Developers will be able to build mobile applications and for $99 PA sell them through Marketplace receiving a 70% revenue split. What’s really neat is that for students this fee will be waived through DreamSpark.

This looks like it will be a great way to show off your C# skills and maybe earn some cash at the same time. Why not check out the Windows Mobile Developers Portal to brush up on WM development.
