The news broke last Friday that Microsoft and Nokia agreed on a partnership mainly focusing on developing smart phones. Everybody knew that Nokia was somehow struggling to catch up with the smart phone crowd. Also, Microsoft claims only a small portion of the smart phone market at this time.
This is important for us the PI community; sooner or later we will see more mobile apps developed for PI users. iPhone and Android are currently more ubiquitous but Windows platform meshes much more easily with the PI infrastructure. Which platform would you choose for development today?
Also, what do you think of the deal? Will this resurrect Nokia and help Microsoft find its footing in the smart phone market? Or you believe there is little chance the deal boosts Windows phone?
