A thousand webOS developers flocking to Windows Phone 7


I don’t know how many developers webOS claimed, but that number is likely at least 1000 smaller, with more than 1000 webOS developers responding to Brandon Watson’s call for them to take up Windows Phone 7 development following HP’s assassination of webOS.

The call had been widely covered in the media, and is even pulling in developers from other platforms, including Android and Symbian.

Interestingly a larger poll of more than 6000 Precentral readers confirms an earlier article, which shows that, of the webOS users who are switching to other platforms about 20% will be coming to Windows phone 7.

It seems webOS’s misfortune will provide the Windows Phone 7 ecosystem a boost from both directions.
