This is an email I got a day or two back from a Nokia (Symbian/Qt) developer I’ve been working with
I am sure you might have heard the Nokia news.
But if you want windows phone 7 app done. I am happy to work
on it. I am now thinking of becoming a freelance developer so will
have much more time.
It was sent about a day after the news of Nokia partnering with Microsoft broke out. Their decision will probably affect a lot of people’s lives and jobs. Developers that have been investing their time and skills into Nokia’s platforms will now become technologically orphans and will have to find a new home.
In a broader view of things, I’m really happy Nokia made a move, any move would have been good, it was a shame seeing a great company loosing its greatness.
Now all that remains is convincing Microsoft to add a decent browser to WP7, IE9 will get there in the future, but I’m still not sure it’ll cut it.
I’d love to see mobile WebKit running on WP7.
