Following on from the collapse of the HP webOS products late last week, when HP released a surprise announcement that they would be stopping all production of their webOS hardware. Closing down production and discontinuing operations for webOS devices, specifically the TouchPad and webOS phones.
Brandon Watson, Microsoft’s Senior Director of Windows Phone 7 development, wasted no time tweeting an offer to published WebOS developers. Wooing potential webOS developers into Microsofts corner by offering free phones, training and development tools.
After a few days the move seem to have paid off for Microsoft as Watson has received more than 500 email from interested webOS developers looking for a new development platform. You can view Brandon Watson Twitter feed here if you are interested in jumping on to the Microsoft developer team.
