Microsoft’s fledgling Windows Phone operating system seems to be regaining momentum after an underwhelming launch.

Developers appear to be embracing the new OS and the number of apps is steadily growing. The Windows Phone Marketplace currently lists more than 25,000 applications, a major improvement over 18,000 listed in May and a meagre 4,000 in December.
