Path is preparing to cross to the Windows Phone mobile platform — one of the more ‘private’ mobile OSes currently in play, with its marginal market share compared to the dominant duo of Android and iOS. Which sounds like a perfect fit for a private social network. Path co-founder and CEO, Dave Morin, confirmed to TechCrunch the network is ”coming to Windows Phone in full partnership with Nokia”.
Path was named one of the forthcoming apps at the launch of Nokia’s new Windows Phone flagship, the Lumia 1020, taking place in New York today, as Nokia announced a new imaging SDK specific to that device. At this point it’s unclear whether Path will be exclusive to the Lumia 1020 — the only Windows Phone to sport a 41 megapixel camera — or whether it will be made available for download to any Windows Phone handset. We’ll update this post as soon as we confirm.
