Nokia’s Further Self-Destruction

Read with disappointment that Nokia has kicked out some developers from their Nokia Developer Champion programme just because they (so far) only developed for Symbian.

I wonder if Nokia realise that some of these developers never needed to develop for other platforms because the earnings from the Symbian apps they wrote were enough for their monthly income (even till today) To me, this clearly shows that the apps they have developed are popular ones. It only makes sense to want these apps to be developed for WP too.

With Nokia’s latest move, the message sent to these developers is that Nokia doesn’t reward loyalty. Is there any point in them supporting WP then? I think not. If i were one of these developers, i would jump ship to Android or iOS now.

Stupid move, Nokia. Stupid move.
