Nokia Windows Phone apps gaining traction?

With no device out in the market right now and just a vague hint at one coming in the near future, Windows Phone apps are already being made by Nokia developers. One app or game actually is from Tero Paananen who you might know from the  games he made with and for his sons or as one of the first Symbian developers to try Windows Phone development.

Tero is now back with yet another game; Angry Monsters. A game that is based on an Angry Birds like gameplay but with Monsters.

It’s a fun little game that still needs some work as Tero also says; sounds, exploding enemies, better game play and game over need to be added.

But what this quick app by Tero  shows is that there are Symbian/Qt developers trying out Windows Phone (development) and don’t hate it, but go with Nokia to Windows Phone. Another testament to that is the Windows Phone app count over at Nokia Developer Projects: 12 apps are currently in development for Windows Phone, 70 for Symbian, 46 for Maemo and 36 for MeeGo. Considering Nokia doesn’t have any Windows Phone product in the market right now it is nice to see that Windows Phone is gaining this kind of traction in the Nokia developer world.
