www.windowsphone.com

You can purchase paid/free apps using any browser on your pc/laptop. You can view what apps history which shows what apps you have purchased and can easily re-install them with 1 click of a button. You can browse the entire apps/games marketplace without needing zune on a pc/laptop say at work or someone else's machine. There is more cool stuff there so check it out.

Mango not too far now and oh, every carrier except for telefonica in Spain has approved the mango update and it's being uploaded to microsoft's update server as I type this.

Interesting how Vodafone has a mention (Vodagone Group) even though their only WP7 handset is no longer available, but no mention of Telecom New Zealand...

*sigh*

They still don't list on the web site what you have purchased (not free apps, but those paid for)...

Cancel that... They now have a list of purchased apps (including free apps) in the Account tab. You can also reinstall from there.

Must still be a work in progress. I get "Server error in '/windowsphone' application".
