PC World, Currys open online app stores
Brought to netbook
Dixons' Currys and PC World apps stores have openned for business to provide netbook owners with a selection of software suitable for the machines' 1024 x 600 machines.
The stores are powered by Intel's AppUp app store, which went live in the US in September. At the time, Dixons said it would be re-badging the shop in Britain, and now the UK-specific store has gone live.
The only snag, of course, is that netbooks appear to be falling out of favour with computer buyers. Will a ready supply of cheap, easy-to-download and try-before-you-buy apps change that? ®
