Monday, I wrote about Microsoft's new interoperability lab in the Philippines. According to an Inquirer.net piece, the first company to use the lab will be D3 Systems, which develops mobile applications running on Java.
Though Microsoft's platform strategy manager in the Philippines, Abet Dela Cruz, didn't reveal other companies on the list, he suggested that other companies that use or develop Java applications are likely targets. He told Inquirer.net:
It's easy to recruit because a lot of developers here are creating software for mobile devices on Java, for example. It should be a win-win situation for them since device support for Windows Mobile is increasing.
As always, it will be interesting to watch this one unfold.
