  1. Hi,

    Will it be available in Romania / European Union?

    Is it true that devs have to resubmit their apps after an update, which would then cost a submission fee, as Long Zheng writes ?? (http://www.istartedsomething.com/20090320/mix09-windows-mobile-65-shows-more-polish/)

    I can´t imagine devs will be happy with this additional cost, and as far as I know, neither Apple nor Google do charge such fees, do they?
