    LaunchPad approval - what is the timeline?

    Hi, I applied for LaunchPad membership a week or so ago and have heard NOTHING from you guys regarding our application for this program. I realize that you guys are going thru a bit of a shake-up right now, but that should not stop you from approving new developers...after all, who do you think is going to help Nokia to survive long-term?

    Please process our application soon. Thanks...rick

    You can find the numerical reasons in #35 of the neighboring thread, http://discussion.forum.nokia.com/fo...ets-processed!

    Re: LaunchPad approval - what is the timeline?

    first, thanks for the very quick reply. From looking at the other thread (#35), the answer is very vague...is there really only one person at Nokia that can approve developer accounts, and does the approval process really grind to a halt if the responsible person is on vacation? I cannot remember the last time that I had a day off from my development work and I would assume that serious mobile developer programs will take a similar tack moving forward...guess you guys need to focus on the key word in the sentence, which was "serious".

    thanks...rick

    There is not much to say about that. If 2-3 applicants per week is the normal operation, 2000 applicants in two weeks certainly cause significant delays. That is 300-500 times more than normal.

    Re: LaunchPad approval - what is the timeline?

    It is just speculation, but in the neighboring thread, user Xpmobile reports that today he has received the NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement), which seems to conclude the process. His first post in that thread is dated 25/02, almost two weeks ago. Based on this, I would expect that you will also get the notification this week. But again, this is just an estimation. I am not a member of FNL, so I am not familiar with the process.

    There is a plan to send out a note to all applicants explaining the delays. I think businesses are given first priority so evenif someone submitted the same day as you, they may be processed a week or longer ahead of you.

    Thanks for the update Ron. Like the other posters in this thread I applied for the launchpad program a few weeks back, and hadn't heard anything as of yet. Your post, and the note clarifying the situation, are/will be most welcome.

    I would like to inquire on the status of our application as well. We submitted a request for LaunchPad membership on Feb 21.
    Thank you.

    I will not ask the team to do this and would recommend they ignore any e-mail asking "how long". This just extends the time it will take to process everyone. You have not and will not miss out on anything, everyone getting a device has been processed.

    Before this gets ugly: are you after the device or after access to the services?
