I think if there was enough hype for WP7 then it would be worth building out Waze for it. As it is, 2 days after launch, it''s probably not worth it to them to dedicate resources to it. And it is a completely different os from WinMo 6.x. I wish I knew more about coding. I'd love to port it over for WP7. I'm just not that good at it.

I would really be disappointed to not have Waze once I upgrade to WP7. Waze is my favorite app on my 6.5WM phone and want to continue that love on my new phone.

I hear that WP7 is easier to code for than the other OS platforms so can it really be that or has the Microsoft hate that has permeated the iOS and Android crowd prevented the staff to get on this?

I think the reason is simple: the developers have their hands full with the code and platforms they already have. Some users have complained that the developers are already spread too thin. So adding a new platform that the developers may have little or no experience with doesn't sound like an effective use of time when the other platforms still have major bugs/issues.

add my voice to the choir.I am aware that WM7 may not have much market share now. However, it does have appeal to a whole new market, a new market for Waze as well.

They stated in the forum recently that WP7 is not on the roadmap at all right now.

And here is another fail for WinMo devices...
I am using WinMo 6.5, but microsoft stopped supporting / updating WinMo 6.5. That means no updates available for 6.5. And no waze for WinMo 7??

Android market grown with a 1000%, iPhone best smartphone of 2010. New releases of Symbian. WinMo isnt attractive anymore, looks like i can throw my phone away and get an iPhone or something :roll:
