We all know that Microsoft has got the hardware side of Windows Phone platform right with Nokia and even upto a level with HTC. Nokia and HTC are releasing their flagship Windows Phone devices Lumia 900 & Titan II respectively on April 8th. But what about the 3rd party apps lacking in Windows Phone platform ? Microsoft has got big plans for it and it was revealed by Mary Jo Foley of All About Microsoft.

the most interesting thing there to me is that Pandora refuses to develop an app for the windows phone. i guess their reasoning is that they dont see it succeeding and do not want to put their resources into it. but i feel like it would be in Microsoft's interest to subsidize that development. Pandora is a very popular app and i know may even be a deal breaker for some (me included, it infuriates me that Pandora crashes my droid 2 and i have to use my iPod for Pandora listening)

Indeed, MS and Pandora seem to hate each other.
