Windows Way back in old and boring January of this year, Microsoft announced they would be working together with the Windows Phone 7 homebrew community, with the goal of creating a stable, supported way for homebrew developers and people interested in homebrew applications to enable side-loading on their WP7 devices. Well, they took their sweet time, but the ChevronWP7 team (Rafael Rivera, Chris Walsh, and Long Zheng) and Microsoft have just announced the results.

"Apple probably charges more but it's Apple, it's expected."

Pointless flaming, but hey, it's expected.

Anyway, the revenue share is 70/30 in every major mobile application store, including the App Store, Ovi Store, Android Market, Samsung Apps, Windows Phone Marketplace... Usually it's the annual membership costs that differ.

Currently Nokia charges 1 euro when signing up, and Apple charges 100 USD per year. As Symbian withers, the former won't really matter after a while.
