We are excited to announce an important milestone today, which is the conclusion of the Nokia Devices and Services business acquisition. As we bring the two teams together, we will double down on our commitment to developers.

Together, we will:

  • Bring more hardware and software innovation to markets around the world, driving more consumer adoption and more growth for developers.
  • Provide better developer tools and services to help developers build great looking, high-performing apps for our expanded family of devices and services.
  • Offer developers opportunities to reach more people with their apps in emerging markets worldwide.

Today is the first step in our journey to bring together Nokia mobile devices with Microsoft software, devices and services to create new experiences that easily connect people to everything and everyone in their life.

We want to extend a sincere Thank You to our developers, and Welcome to the hundreds of new developers joining every day. It’s developers like you who inspire and energize us every single day, and we are excited to continue this journey with you.

Cheers,

Guggs and Bryan
