Nokia continues to strengthen partnerships with software providers to bring more compelling content to the Windows Phone platform. This time they are working with Genius Brands International to bring their *Award Winning* Baby Genius products exclusively to Lumia devices.
Baby Genius apps aim to help children transition from preschool to kindergarten. The first two apps from the series Sing ‘n Play Pals will arrive this summer as Nokia exclusive content. The apps are said to contain both free and premium content that can be unlocked by a parent at their discretion.
CEO of Genius Brands Klaus Moeller had this to say about the announcement...
“We are extremely excited to work with Nokia as their content partner for its Windows Phone platforms and look forward to a long and successful relationship between our companies as we produce a series of Baby Genius content for Windows Phone. We believe this content is well suited for other Windows platforms so that children and families can enjoy Baby Genius educational content on multiple devices”
Nokia's Chris Surowiec also said.
“The Lumia 610, 710, 800, and hero device Lumia 900 on AT&T are helping to drive the success of the Microsoft Windows Phone ecosystem by attracting valued and engaging content from trusted publishers. Parents want to be confident being their young children's first teacher and Baby Genius content delivers on that promise.”
Nokia continues to work with Software providers to help improve the app eco system for Windows Phone devices. One can only hope that with this type of continued partnering to get established software developers on board will eventually lead to more original apps being created as a matter of course. I find it interesting that Klaus mentions this content is "well suited for other Windows Platforms". I wonder could that mean Windows Phone 8 & Windows 8 apps are already be in the pipeline?
I’m not quite so sure I’d hand a very small child my precious Lumia 800 to muck about with but I’m sure this is getting to be quite common. Do you think you’d be interested in these apps for your little ones?
