WP7 market place now accessible from web

The Windows Phone 7′s Market Place finally has a website, so you can browse from a desktop PC.

Previously Windows Phone market place was only browse-able via the Marketplace app on WP7, but that changes today when a worldwide accessible website has launched for the app. Ovi store, iTunes and Android Market have all enjoyed a strong web presence so that people can easily browse new apps or share links easily while sitting on a desktop PC and get their apps installed on their phone using on-air installation. And finally the WP7 market place has put their apps collection on a functional website too.

The interface for the Market Place is clean and simple. You will find the expected content there: reviews, screenshots, ratings, but the stats for number of downloads is missing for now.  You can link your Live account to the market place to make the purchases or get free apps and games from this site easily. Although the market place has been localized to include many countries and provide local currency rates of apps, but right now I found no local Middle East country / currency is supported at the time of posting this news.
