Lumia 800 Nokia WP7

As Microsoft continues its efforts to gain market share in the smartphone war, they have just announced a new competition for local developers. Australians who develop applications for Windows Phone will have the chance to win either a Nokia Lumia 710 or the flagship Nokia WP7 phone, the Nokia Lumia 800.

To qualify, you have to publish 3 or 4 apps between Jan 1st 2012 and 12 midnight EST Mar 30th, 2012. This offer is limited to the first 50 developers and only 1 phone per developer.

It’ll be interesting to see the quality of apps that arise as a result of this promotion. While Microsoft continues its efforts to increase the number of apps available in the Marketplace, it’s important not to lower the quality of apps, just to hit a theoretical number. Your applications will still need to pass through standard certification to be published.
