Our friend Picturepan2 is hard at work (even on his birthday!), and has screenshots of Windows Mobile Marketplace in action:

The Marketplace is only available now for Windows Mobile 6.5 phones (one of which is already on sale), due to be released tomorrow, Oct. 6.  Along with Windows Mobile Marketplace, a new version of MyPhone is included.  And of course the big news for us is that there is a new version of Windows Live for Windows Mobile available.  Picturepan2 provided us with some screenshots, we’ll have more soon (unfortunately no 6.5 phone here to give it a spin (yet)):

(more screenshots in the full post!)
(also note that the new Windows Phone website is up, a day early.  Marketplace link is locked down, though)

MyPhone

includes Photo Sharing to Windows Live and other Social Networking sites, and lots more choices for sync:

Windows Live

Windows Live Photo goodness:

Picturepan2 likes designer skins :)

Windows Live Messenger:

More Windows Live:

According to Picturepan2, no Bing apps yet in the Marketplace, so there’s still lots more to come…

    Marketplace is kinda lame.
    Windows Live looks good, got a download link?

    Great stuff with Windows Live, but… any word on calendar syncing yet? They really need to get on this!

    The download link is on WM 6.5 phones now. MyPhone is down for maintenance, and the link to Windows Marketplace on windowsphone.com is locked down.

    Looks good, although I wish they’d get their act together and merge MyPhone & WL4WM into a single app.
    I echo the early comment about calendar syncing also!

    The new Windows Live is pretty nice. Still no calendar though that I can see. And just as lame, still doesn’t support Multiple Points Of Presence!!

    We want good calendar syncing! :-/

    Does anyone know what the “Sync” menu do in Windows Live for Windows Mobile?

    The sync on WMforWM syncs email and contacts with the windows live service.
