Sad news, Windows Phone users. After recently noting how lucky you are with the recent price drops
and other deals, WPCentral
has confirmed that the Windows Phone Deal of the Week will be on hiatus through the end of the year.
This, of course, isn't the first time the WP Marketplace lacked a Deal of the Week, as it went through an unannounced and unexplained dry spell over the summer. The DotW is expected to start back up around January 2nd, but that is not confirmed.
In another blow to the WP Marketplace, this week's new release, AlphaJax (WP)
, has suffered a delay. The free-to-play title will be upgraded to Xbox LIVE functionality at a later date. We can only hope it will be no later than next week.
