MOBILE MONDAYS ARE BACK – Come out to The Canal Room March 26th.

March 10th, 2012 · No Comments · Mobile Marketing, Technology

Haven’t been to one of these for a while and I guess it’s because the group leaders lost their deal at the Samsung Experience in the Time Warner Center.

But how about this – “Developing for Nokia with WP7 – March 26th at The Canal Room.”

This month, Mobile Monday has partnered with Nokia for an event that will introduce developers to building for Windows Phone 7 on Nokia devices. Everybody is so happy writing for droid and iPhone I was wondering if we’d ever see the same for Windows based smart phones – and now this. Better late than never here comes Nokia.

What took them so long?

Nevermind – the Lumia 900, was the winner of the Best Smartphone of CES and some lucky souls have had a chance to play and live with them. I saw one at NAB two years ago and just wasn’t comfortable with it. I hate how Google manipulates my phone and I’m sure it will be the same with Microsoft though that is one thing that could get me to switch. Privacy.

Now we’ll learn how and why to develop for the platform. We’ll also hear plans for the US market and Nokia’s focus on apps and developers, including seeding thousands of devices, and providing access to tools, support and training. Oh, and did we mention Nokia will be giving away FREE DEVICES?!

I don’t know anyone building for WP7 so it will be interesting. Some selected developers will be able present their work to the Mobile Monday community and Nokia.

Here’s the deets:

WHEN: March 26th at 7pm
WHERE: The Canal Room, 285 West Broadway in Manhattan
HOW: Register now – space is limited
