WP7 To WP8 Migration, Not Easy

Microsoft Cash Cow.John Marshall: “Existing WP7 apps will be recompiled to work under Metro, but nothing has been said whether this is a one time event or the developers will have the oppurtunity to continue to modify the WP7 code.”

Wow. That’s all I can say. Nokia bet the farm on Windows Phone 7, released the Lumia 900, and Microsoft does this?

Man, good thing they’re friends.

Daring Fireball: “Microsoft has never been cool, has never had good taste, but their lack of cool and lack of taste are spiraling out of control.”

I’m not exactly sure why Microsoft would target the iPhone? Apple has, what, 6% of the mobile market? They’re also limited to AT&T as a carrier.

John is right, the bigger threat is Android with all the OEM deals. Actually, the biggest threat of all is Microsoft. They haven’t exactly done so well in the mobile market lately. Hopefully they don’t pull another KIN.
