We got word from some Nokia folks that if you make apps for Windows Phone, you'll want to take a short moment to fill out a nice little developer survey that's evaluating the smartphone ecosystem i.e. dev interest in making apps for various platforms.
This is one of those surveys from Strategy Analytics that will end up in a report showing how much devs love or hate their OS and more specifically, registering interest (or disinterest) in Windows Phone directly. That translates into "We need you to fill this out otherwise Windows Phone gets a bad rap, ya dig?".
According to the survey's front page:
"The following questions will help us and key players in the apps ecosystem understand the current thinking of mobile app developers. This information will only be used in aggregate to present a picture of how developers feel about the apps market today and its future.
Developers that complete the survey will be entered into a drawing to win either a BlackBerry PlayBook, iPad or Kindle Fire. The drawing will be held in early May. Developers that refer others to this survey will receieve (sic) additional entries into the drawing.
Please note that all individual responses will be kept confidential and results will be presented in aggregate. The survey should take no more than 10-15 minutes. Thank you for your time."
That sounds like a pretty fair request and we think as developers, you'll want to register your experience with these folks. If so, just head here, grab a cuppa joe and get started here: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/803120/Nok
