Possibly Nokia are thinking longer term. After all, they are trying to
create a platform, and one that's attractive to other companies, not
just one product. In the long term, dependence on a single vendor could
be a huge cost.

And in the short term, they can get wider involvement more quickly by
lowering the initial costs for third-party developers. 

I'm just guessing.
