It’s impossible to overstate how completely fucked Nokia is when it comes to apps. Silverlight for native, IE7 for web. Hurray hu-bloody-rray. Will Symbian developers flock to Silverlight? I beg leave to doubt it. As to web developers and IE7, well, that doesn’t need any comment.
Some action on this front is urgently required. Qt? Unlikely. IE9? Microsoft is working on it, but I expect it end of this year at the earliest. Another browser, such as Opera? Unlikely; creating a browser in Silverlight is not the easiest of tasks.
