Microsoft gave developers a sneak peek at their new iTunes style ‘Windows Store’ last night in San Francisco, making the first time the new concept has been demonstrated since it was introduced at the BUILD conference in September.
The Windows Store will sell “Metro-style” apps. Microsoft Metro is the design language of the “live tile” icons for apps that first made an appearance in 2010 on the Windows Phone 7 OS, and is making its way over to the Xbox 360 via a software update.
Customers won’t be able to access the Windows Store until February, when Windows 8 is expected to be released.
