With the growing business opportunities available on the Asha and Windows Phone platforms, we have been reviewing our developer content programs to see how we can maximize our support to you, our developers. As a result of this review, we have decided to focus our support and investment in new content toward Asha and Windows Phone. Over the next few months we will be transitioning our active developer support away from Symbian and MeeGo.
If you have Symbian and MeeGo content in the Nokia Store, it will continue to be available for download to customers, and you will continue to receive download and revenue reports as well as payouts for downloaded content. However, starting January 1, 2014, you will no longer be able to publish any new content or update existing content for Symbian and MeeGo.
The Symbian Signed program will also close on January 1, 2014. If you have any unused paid technical support tickets, you may use them for Windows Phone or Asha developer support.
We are very excited about the opportunities available with Asha and Windows Phone, and hope that you, our Symbian and MeeGo developers, will bring your talents to these platforms. We believe that these changes will help improve our ability to support you as you develop fantastic apps for your customers.
