Nokia and microsoft : What's in it for mobile developers?

  1. 1. Nokia & Microsoft: What’s in it for mobile developers Naga Chokkanathan November 2011Copyright of CRMIT-© 2011. All rights reserved. Confidential Information
  2. 2. Nokia and Microsoft • Broad Strategic Partnership to Build a New Global Mobile Ecosystem – Using their complementary strengths and expertise – Microsoft is strong in software, developer tools, office apps – Nokia is strong in user experience, hardware & distributionCopyright of CRMIT-© 2011. All rights reserved. Confidential Information
  3. 3. Nokia Lumia • First phone series developed under Nokia, Microsoft partnership – Lumia710 and Lumia800 • Features – Always Social – Super fast browsing (IE9 Mobile) – Personalization – MS Office – Search / Maps (Strong “bing” integration) • What is missing? – Apps!Copyright of CRMIT-© 2011. All rights reserved. Confidential Information
  4. 4. Where are the apps? • Microsoft is trying to position this phone as an android replacement – No fragmentation : Tight control on hardware – Hardware has all best features of iPhone / Android – Operating system is equally good – But is it enough to compete? • Smart phone ecosystem has changed while Microsoft was on a long vacation – A phone is only as good as the apps I can run on it – Users have seen that apps extend the power of the phone and want more and more • Biggest challenge for Nokia, Microsoft : How to match all the great apps in iTunes Store / Android Market / OVI Store etc.,?Copyright of CRMIT-© 2011. All rights reserved. Confidential Information
  5. 5. Where are the apps? (Contd) • Microsoft has built some great apps for this phone and they will add more in the coming days • But, they are not enough, a single company can’t build all the apps – You need a developer community – Easy to use development tools – Portability (from other apps) – Easy to sell market environment – Ability to sell for global users – At least 70% share in the sale • For the end users, wide range of apps to try / buy / download / use, all from the phone • Nokia, Microsoft have a long way to go on thisCopyright of CRMIT-© 2011. All rights reserved. Confidential Information
  6. 6. Can I Develop? • Free developer tools – Microsoft is not used to THIS ;) – But they can’t charge for something that is given free by Apple / Google / Blackberry • Become an app hub member – Documentation / Tutorials / Videos / Forums etc., • Submit / Sell Apps (Once approved) – Windows Phone Market Place • Microsoft Advertising Platform (Huge success elsewhere)Copyright of CRMIT-© 2011. All rights reserved. Confidential Information
  7. 7. Unlock Joy • http://www.iunlockjoy.com/ – A special program for Windows Mobile Developers in India • Register – Submit Apps – Walk away with goodies (including a free mobile, if you develop enough apps) • Extra bonus if you port apps in other markets to Windows Mobile : Master stroke – Interesting concept, need to see how effectively it is going to work – What about quality of apps? (This campaign may produce huge number of apps, but will they be useful?)Copyright of CRMIT-© 2011. All rights reserved. Confidential Information
