Looks like Microsoft’s Brandon Watson got more than he expected when he Tweeted about webOS devs switching to Windows Phone. In a follow up Tweet, he notes the overwhelming response:“…I have >500 emails in just the last 22 hours. Had to rethink the algorithm for responding to all.”
Brandon Watson is senior director of Windows Phone 7 development at Microsoft. He put the word out to published webOS developers shortly following HP’s decision to discontinue webOS hardware, offering webOS developers hardware and assistance if they wanted to switch to WP7 development instead. Good on Watson for recognizing an opportunity when he saw one.
