Runtime Intelligence for Windows Phone Service Change Scheduled for Dec. 9, 2011
PreEmptive Solutions will be making material changes to its Runtime Intelligence for Windows Phone service on or after December 9, 2011.
While we do not have specific details at this time as to what these changes will be, this communication serves as the 60 day notice that we had committed to earlier this year (see the 3rd paragraph of our May announcement http://www.preemptive.com/news-events/press-releases/369).
Between now and December 9, 2011, there will be no change in the service and access to both the service and Dotfuscator for Windows Phone will not be interrupted.
Why are we making this announcement today?
Early last week, Microsoft notified PreEmptive that there would be no extension of the existing agreement beyond September 30, 2011. Mindful of our commitment to the development community to provide a minimum 60 day notice (a commitment we take seriously of course), PreEmptive Solutions will offer our software and service to the WP7 community at our own expense and at no charge for the next 60 days.
Is the system going away in December? Will this be a fee or advertising driven service? Great questions! At this point in time, we are exploring a number of business models that would permit our service to continue uninterrupted. You will be getting a survey in the next day or so - please take the time to tell us what's important to you.
Please contact Sebastian Holst at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or comments.
