Microsoft denies offering money to iPhone developers for Windows Phone 7 ports


Microsoft has officially denied the rumor that I reported a few days ago about the iPhone developers that were supposedly offered loads of money to port their successful applications to Windows Phone 7. Contacted by French website L’Informaticien, Microsoft said that they will obviously talk to iPhone developers and try to convince them that developing for WP7 is a path that they should consider.But that there’s no need for them [MS] to pay anybody given the thousands of current Silverlight developers in the world (15000 only in France). Microsoft is confident that enough developers are interested in the new mobile platform.
