PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Now that the dust has settled after Stephen Elop's big announcement on the 11th February 2011, many have come to realise that actually Nokia's move towards a a new Ecosystem is not as bad as what they thought. [...] But what does all this mean for the Nokia Developers? When the proposed partnership with Microsoft was announced, many felt betrayed and worried about their future, but after having heard and assisted a number of workshops at the Nokia Developer Day at this years Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, earlier this month, their outlook towards the new ecosystem has taken a 180 degree turn and are now looking at the proposed partnership with a lot more enthusiasm, recognising the potential it will bring them in the coming months."

Sygic is the best navigation program for Nokia phones. It´s a C (or C++ i don't know) and it works in Symbian, Maemo, Android and iPhone. If WP7 only supports .Net/Silverlight it won't work

Link if so this is a backflip. Windows Phone 7 was ment to push .net. If native development comes so will qt. So no point bothering building applications for Windows Phone 7 or if ever.
