Microsoft and Nokia have announced the launch of a new app development center, which will be based in Finland, and will be called the AppCampus, and the two companies are investing $24 million in it.
The AppCampus will launch in May, and it will be managed by Finland’s Aalto University, in an attempt to attract students, developers and entrepreneurs to the Windows Phone platform and also the Symbian platform.
Obviously Microsoft and Nokia are hoping that the new platform will boost Windows Phone, and Nokia Phone devices with new apps which will be developed for the Windows Phone platform.
Last week we heard that the Windows Phone platform had reached 70,000 apps which is quite a bit behind the two most popular platforms, Android and iOS.
