jbernardo writes: Nokia has put in deep freeze its free developer program, the launchpad. Now, in the Developer Programs page, one can only see a pitch for a paid "Nokia Premium Developer Program", and below, in the Nokia Developer Pro and Developer Launchpad box, there is a text merely stating that Nokia are not currently accepting new applications for Nokia Developer Launchpad and Nokia Developer Pro programs. With most (if not all) Launchpad memberships already expired, seems like Nokia no longer is interested in the developer community, which once was one of the mainstays of its domination of the smartphone market. Of course, that domination was destroyed by Elop and its "burning platforms" memo, together with the failed bet on windows phone 7, so maybe giving up on developers would also be expectable.
Repel them. Repel them. Induce them to relinquish the spheroid.
