Microsoft has listened to their Windows Phone 7 developers:
Increase the number of free application submissions from 5 to … *gulp* … 100.
Whether you are tiny company or mega company, actively listening to those “working in the trenches” will always move you forward. Always.
Microsoft and Nokia’s new
partnership is looking like the above.
No word on the hardware, yet, but it looks like things are moving in the right direction.
