Windows Phone owners who happen to live in Bulgaria, Costa Rica, Croatia, Estonia, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey, Ukraine, and Venezuela, here is some good news for you, and hopefully it will be able to perk you up through the middle of the week as the weekend looms in the horizon. Microsoft has announced that they will be opening up the Marketplace in those countries, so may the downloading begin! This would mean the aforementioned 13 countries will be joining Argentina, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Peru, and the Philippines for some Marketplace goodness, bringing the total number of Marketplace storefronts to 54. Of course, Microsoft is definitely not going to stop here, as they have plans outlined for the UAE, Bahrain, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kazakhstan, Israel, Thailand, and Vietnam in the near future. This would definitely mean the 70,000 plus apps available on the Marketplace will not stay that way for long with the opening up of new markets.
