Windows Phone Apps Now Cheaper in Australia

Looks like it's not just Apple fans getting cheaper Australian App Store prices: Microsoft has reportedly also dropped Windows Phone 7 app prices. US 99 cent apps are now 99c here instead of $AU1.18, and other tiers have slashed, too…

I've reached out to Microsoft Australia for official comment, but thanks to all the Giz readers who sent this in. Looks like news first broke after a tweet from Aussie Windows Phone dev, @ChrisWalshie: "It would appear there are new price brackets for Apps, not XBL games, $0.99c, $1.49, $2.49, $3.49 in the AU market. #wp7 #wp7au."

US$0.99 apps now AU$0.99 (was AU$1.18) US$1.29 apps still AU$1.49 US$1.99 apps now AU$2.49 (was AU$2.73) US$2.99 apps now AU$3.49 (was AU$3.64) US$4.99 apps now AU$5.49 (was AU$5.91) US$9.99 apps still AU $10.49
