Barranger Ridler is a Windows Phone 7 developer, and was recently asked to join Nokia for a "getting to know you" style event called #NokiaUnfenced. His blog on Nokia's approach to WP7 is worth reading, answering some of the questions about what Nokia is doing to get developers on board for the new devices and OS widely assumed to be coming before the end of the year. No hardware news, but his thoughts on the Nokia touchstones (camera, build quality and software stability) are good indicators of what could attract developers to Nokia.
And when it was all over?
I really didn’t know why everyone in the Windows Phone community was so excited about the Nokia deal. After the weekend I completely understand it. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t think that when Sea Ray is release you're going to start seeing landfills full of iPhones and Android devices, but it’s certainly a large step in the right direction for the platform that could sorely use it. Personally I’ll be picking one of them up as soon as I can get my hands on one.
