Microsoft attempted to woo developers and wow the tech press this week by offering a fairly extensive preview of, as well as a contest for, its forthcoming Windows Store, an online applications hub for Windows 8 desktop computers and mobile devices. But it's not going over so well abroad.
The store is supposed to launch in February 2012, alongside the Windows 8 operating system, with apps starting at the price of $1.49 (as opposed to the most standard $0.99 price in the Apple App Store and Android Market), the Verge reported.
