25,000 free Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phones available for developers

Published by at

The word from the developer side of Nokia World keeps getting better and better (and not just the 40 developers taking part in the Hackathon challenge). To seed the dev community, Nokia will be providing 25,000 Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phones... for free.

The catch is you need to be ready to develop for Windows Phone, and ideally target the Nokia devices, but there's no word just yet on what the commitment is (Maybe it's just a pinky promise?).

1000 handsets are sitting in a truck just outside the ExCeL center, waiting for the Developers post-event party. No word on the other 24,000, but with developer events and significant community outreach planned for the next twelve months, these are sure to be distributed to ensure an amazing developer experience... everyday.
