Are you a student in the US? Get a free Windows Phone

Apr 6, 2012
One minute read

Paul Betts mentioned on Twitter yesterday that he was looking for a Canada-specific offer, where developers could get free Windows Phone devices. Although I was not aware of anything like that for Canada, there sure is an offer for students in the United States.

So if you want a free Windows Phone device, you need to make sure that you follow these guidelines:

  • You are a student in an accredited university/college in the United States
  • You have developed two Windows Phone applications that are (or will be) published between March 26th and May 31st, 2012.
  • Those apps are targeting Windows Phone 7.5
  • Apps support Fast App Switching
  • The apps are of high-quality and are not created with one of the “do-it-fast” tools, like AppMakr or FollowMyFeed
  • You have not received a Windows Phone device in previous student promotions from Microsoft

Full outline of the official rules can be found here.

You can sign up for the promotion here.
