Meaning Windows Phone owners get access to more than 100 new apps every 24 hours and more than half of our customers are downloading a new app every day.”

We also will release a version of the software which’ll allow our phone partners to release new Windows Phones on the Sprint and Verizon networks in the first half of 2011.”
