We’re excited to announce the Windows Store is expanding to 38 supported markets and the UK is part of this expansion. Dates haven't been confirmed yet but we'll keep you updated as and when information is announced.
If you want to get an app into the Store before or soon after general availability then your local UK MSDN team can help in getting a registration code that is needed for submission to the Store. This is a huge opportunity not only to be one of the first to get your app in front of your customers but also get valuable feedback to ensure it’s the best it can be by final release of Windows 8. If you’ve got a great idea then download the consumer preview and start building now
For those people with application plans;
In addition to that process, we’d encourage everyone to come along to one of our events or camps where you can talk through this process in person and also apply to join our LinkedIn Group which we’ll use to share the details of the app excellence labs.
Note that the availability of labs is limited and invitations will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis but this will in no way limit your ability to submit an application via the regular submission process once the Store is open for general availability.
