I saw that coming… No app store and separate from their high priority Windows Phone 7 project? Yeah, buh-bye

Well, they purchased that Danger company awhile back (the maker’s of the T-mobile SideKick phones). This was the fruit of that purchase, but it didn’t align with their long term Windows Phone 7 strategy, so I see why it was axed. I’m surprised they even bothered to release them, but I guess they had to at least TRY to make some money back from all their R&D into these phones…
