Samsung sends an open invitation to Symbian developers to join bada
It's said that Samsung has sent an open invitation to a number of Indian developers who are working on Symbian, but are disillusioned with Nokia's decision to make WP its main smartphone strategy. The letter encourages them to start developing for bada. The exact words are:
"If you are a Symbian developer unhappy about Nokia’s recent announcements, and are hence looking for a new platform to showcase your talents, we say “Hello!” and “Welcome to bada!” If you’re new to the bada development, or are moving your app from Symbian, we’d like to welcome you with the ‘Quick guide to bada development’. In about 15 minutes, you can learn how to build your first bada app!"
We guess this is a win-win situation for both Samsung's OS and these developers. It would be great for bada if there is an influx of developers who are seasoned veterans, and if this happens, we hope we would see the fruits of their labor pretty soonish.

Over seas there may be a huge hole left by Nokia for Samsung to grab. There sure will be a lot of talent left by Nokia. Seems like a natural.....

That's a great opportunity to see a mixup of talent in different OS'. It'll be awesome just to see different developers working on different platforms and see what turns out.
