Nokia X porting bus

The Nokia X Porting Bus has hit the road! After a week in Barcelona for the Mobile World Congress, we recently visited developers in Paris and Lyon, France, where we shared tools, porting tips, and good times. Here’s the bus in Paris:

All through March, our Porting Bus will roll across Europe and introduce developers to our new Nokia X software platform. Nokia X is your new software platform for expanded markets, additional revenue, and wider promotion of your apps. Best of all, about 75 per cent of all Android apps are directly compatible with the Nokia X software platform and ready to be published on Nokia Store. If you already develop Android apps, you can continue to use your existing tool chain. And if your app is one of the few that needs changing, we now provide a plugin package for the SDK.

Nokia X Porting Bus Tour

Later this month, the Nokia X Porting Bus will be making stops in Berlin, Bologna, Budapest, Lille, London, Milan, Prague, and Warsaw. If you live or work nearby, come and meet us! Bring your Android apps to the bus, and we will show you how easy it is to port them to the new Nokia X software platform, and let you check your apps on actual Nokia X devices. You will also meet our friendly Nokia experts and have a chance to get some cool swag, including T-shirts and portable chargers.

Next week, the bus is coming to Italy and making two stops:

Milan: 10 and 11 March, Superstudio, Via Tortona 27

Bologna: 13 March, Piazza dell’ Otto Agosto
