WebOS developers move to Windows Phone 7

Written by David Stellmack

Free development tools and phones to come over
Microsoft claims that more than 500 developers have Emailed Microsoft about taking them up on their offer to become a Windows Phone 7 developer. Apparently, if you are a WebOS published developer, you could Email Microsoft at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and Microsoft is apparently excited about being able to gain developers.

The bottom line is that Microsoft claims that they are committed to developers and will provide them with development kits, phones, tools, and training to make them successful. Microsoft claims they want these developers to get on board with Windows Phone 7.

If accurate and Microsoft has received 500 Emails with developers ready to move to Windows Phone 7, this could be a big help to Microsoft as they try to boost the number of applications available for the Windows Phone 7 platform.

Regardless of what you think of the operating system. This is good news.

Say what you will about WP, Microsoft knows what they're doing. Appealing to developers is a very important part of any OS ecosystem. Instead of insisting that developers should pray to the OS maker or letting developers get railroaded by platform fragmentation, Microsoft actually provides support and compatibility. This is why Windows Phone will succeed in the long-term--because Microsoft won't let it fail (not that iOS or Android are failing by any means). Mobile developers have nothing but good things to say about developing for WP.
