Microsoft with name change of app store to Windows Phone Store

7 August 2012 by
Microsoft hints of name change for the Windows Phone Marketplace to Windows Phone Store.

Windows Marketplace now called Windows Phone Store

Microsoft will soon do just like Google did with the previously named Android Market back in March. Google explained that the reason for the name change was that the company wanted to have the possibility to expand the offering from not only selling smartphone apps but also offer music, video, books and more.

Microsoft has not released any official statement of the name change but the change could be an effort by the company to let all the online shops have similar names such as Windows 8 Store, Office Store and Microsoft Store.

Why not stick with the "Windows marketplace" instead? that's shorter, and easier to say

Razec, you're correct yet funny enough, google also left the marketplace - I really wonder if market research has determined this action from both companies. What's more interesting; is the "store" in the name.
