Nokia has partnered with Mobile Monday NY this month to introduce developers to Windows Phone. Nokia will share their plans for the US market and focus on apps and developers. As an added bonus, Nokia will be giving away free devices to developers. No word on which model it could be.
At Nokia World, the Senior Vice President of Developer and Marketplace at Nokia announced that they will be shipping 25,000 Nokia Lumia 800 devices to developers around the world. I think we may have found a photo of some of those Nokia Lumia 800 smartphones on the way to the developers.
According to a recent CNN article, Nokia is privately dispensing cash to developers to make apps for Windows Phone. They’re also offering incentives like pre-installing developers’ software on upcoming phones and marketing their products. CNN says such payments from phone manufacturers are unusual.
We told you earlier that the Nokia Developer forum was hacked. Nokia addressed the problem immediately and initially stated that only a small number of member records had been accessed. However, a recent email sent to forum members says the number is significantly larger. Nokia has now taken the developer community website offline as a precautionary measure while they conduct further investigations and security assessments.
The Nokia Developer website was hacked earlier today. The discussion board was temporarily redirected to a page with Homer Simpson and a short message. The hacker responsible goes by the name of pr0tect0r AKA mrNRG.
Intel is currently offering several incentives for developers to create MeeGo apps. The prizes look very interesting. How does a trip to South Pole sound? How about flying former military jets at supersonic speeds? If you’re not into that, you can opt for cash. The first 100 submitted quality apps also get $500 and the best 10 of those apps get $1000.
Last September, Nokia and AT&T jointly announced the $10 million Calling All Innovators contest. It’s a competition for developers to create new applications and games for the Nokia N8 and future Nokia devices for consumers in the U.S. and Canada. There’s still time to enter and they just launched a loaner program so developers can test their apps on a Nokia C7.
Hey there, developers! Meego 1.1 SDK beta just came out. The release enables you to develop, install, and debug applications, as well as run applications on the Nokia N900, netbook, and Aava devices with MeeGo. Developers will need a Linux system for this SDK beta since Windows support is still unstable. Go ahead, and start working on that killer app.
