Microsoft Offers Published webOS Developers: Free Phones, Training And Developer Tools
Following on from the collapse of the HP webOS products late last
week, when HP released a surprise announcement that they would be
stopping all production of their webOS hardware. Closing down production
and discontinuing operations for webOS devices, specifically the
TouchPad and webOS phones.
Brandon Watson, Microsoft’s Senior Director of Windows Phone 7
development, wasted no time tweeting an offer to published WebOS
developers. Wooing potential webOS developers into Microsofts corner by
offering free phones, training and development tools.
After a few days the move seem to
have paid off for Microsoft as Watson has received more than 500 email
from interested webOS developers looking for a new development platform.
