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."

No Migration path. Start from scratch...


I figured as much.

It could be said then, that for existing Nokia phone developers, there really isn't much difference if they were to stick with Nokia, or if they jump ship - they are probably learning a new system (or "environment") from scratch either way.

I suspect Nokia are hoping they will attract as many new developers (or more?) than they lose. It's an impressive gamble.

The question then of "What's the opinion of Nokia Developers about the Nokiasoft Partnership" probably doesn't seem so important to those in charge of Nokia right now, since they figured they were going down in flames anyhow.
