Australians would be familiar with the JB Hi-Fi NOW music streaming service, a Spotify-like music service, which has recently released Android and iOS apps.
Now in their quarterly market results update, JB Hi-Fi confirmed that a Windows Phone 7 app next on their list, saying:
JB Hi-Fi NOW, JB Hi-Fiâ€™s digital content delivery platform, continues to gain traction with the launch in April of JB Hi-Fi Nowâ€™s digital music streaming service mobile apps for both Apple iOS and Android devices with an app for Windows devices to follow shortly. JB Hi-Fi will continue to evolve the NOW platform to innovate and capture new markets.
While Windows Phone may not have the market share yet, it is starting to gain the mind share which is making it a bit more difficult to ignore, which can only be a good thing for the growth of niche apps in Marketplace.
