Windows Phone Marketplace Now Web Accessible

After months of being accessible only via Windows-based smartphones, the Windows Phone Marketplace now sports a web portal for easy at-your-desk app browsing.

Like other mobile app marketplaces you’re likely familiar with, the Windows Phone Marketplace includes sub-sections for Apps and Games, further divided by the free, top, and new apps in each category. You can easily drill down to individual apps, read reviews, check out screenshots, and login with your Windows Live credentials to purchase apps through the web interface–just like the Android Market, apps purchased via the web portal are automatically pushed to your phone.
