Microsoft’s challenge with WP7: developers

As Steve Ballmer clearly indicates, developers are what’s important. Developers are also the main reason Windows as a desktop OS is so popular.

Wired.com have asked lots of developers what they think of WP7, and it’s well worth a read.

The major complaint of existing WM seems to be the variety of handsets (making it difficult for developers to cover all devices). What’s interesting, is that to me that’s not a huge issue. Yes, you have to make your software resolution aware, but that’s no different to a desktop OS.

The only thing we can really do with regards to WP7 is wait for MIX10, and not have developers bickering about a lack of anything until it’s confirmed!
