UPDATE: YES THIS IS AN OLDER POST BUT I STILL HAVE PHONES
Are you looking for a Free Windows Phone? Are you a developer? Do you live on the West Coast of the US? (CA, AZ,ID, WA, NM, CO, NV, OR, UT) Then I have a phone for you. (Read Below) If you have been looking for a free windows phone to do development on then all you need to do is contact me. Email me at Daniel.Egan@microsoft.com and I will send you all the details. (INCLUDE WHERE YOU LIVE in the email or I will not respond — too many emails :) )
I want to be clear on a couple of things.
I am getting these phones to developers that are writing applications for the marketplace
I have a limited supply (First ones to get me the info I need)
You must live on the West Coast of the US (CA, AZ,ID, WA, NM, CO, NV, OR, UT)
This does not mean that they will have a phone for you, but if you are developing for Windows Phone, you WANT to know your windows phone champ. If they don’t have phones, they may know someone who does ( I repeat, I am not saying they have phones , but they may know a way. Either way, they are a great resource for you. )
So all of you West Coasters, get your Free Windows Phone while they last. Email me at Daniel.Egan@microsoft.com for the details. UPDATE : PLEASE INCLUDE WHERE YOU ARE FROM SO I DONT HAVE TO ASK YOU IN EMAIL. (Slowes down the process)
If you are writing your phone applications using HTML5, you will want to check this out. PhoneGap has released an update to work with Windows Phone. What PhoneGap does is allow you to write your phone application in HTML5 and still access most of the Native API’s and wrap it in a Native application wrapper so that you can put it in the marketplace. This means you can write your application cross platform.
You can download it from here : http://phonegap.com/ or just watch the video below for more information.
Those that know me, know that I am not really a gamer. I enjoy a game once in a while but usually don’t spend much time playing them. I came across this FREE game today that is really cool. It’s a first person shooter game for the phone. The graphics could be a bit better but hey… Its free. Check it out. http://www.windowsphone.com/en-US/search?q=LilDemonsSplatter
