I just saw this post on wmpoweruser... does anyone here have any details on this?!?
Yes this was announced at Nokia World, and some of the first to be seeded are the Nokia Developer Champions, Pro and LaunchPad members that were sent a letter in Februrary.
The rest will be seeded to true developers who attend training and other associted type events. They will not go to someone just becuse they say they are developing for WP on Nokia.
Hello Ron, I'm a developer for Nokia, a Launchpad Member and selected developer for MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan, i'm one of the lucky who have the Nokia N950.
I'm selected for this program or not? If the answer is "No", can I do anything to be selected? I would like to continue to develop for Nokia and its new platform.
So even if you've been a windows phone developer and released apps... if you haven't been to a training you don't get one?
I have 6 apps on the marketplace right now(more coming) and would love to be able to test with a Nokia phone.
http://wmpoweruser.com/nokia-windows...tarting-today/ there is only one road show event in the USA in Silicon Valley at an unnamed place and time. I cannot get away from Seattle long enough to attend. Where's the info on the online videos? What constitutes "training and other associated type events"? Is online video enough of an interest? I am working on Android, but am interested in seeing what the new Windows phone has to offer.

I'm not saying I should just be handed a phone, I'm more than willing to work for it, but I can't afford to go to events.
There is no announced distribution policy. However it is rather probable that some kind of 'history' is required for getting a device. 25000 seems to be a large number, but the 7 billionth living person is supposed to born this week (some calculates today).
If you are still a student, you can check if the free AppHub registration via DreamSpark applies to you, and your school may also have ways to get devices/support.
Oh well, I'll wait until the policy is announced, and see if there's anything I can do to be deemed eligible, otherwise I'll just have to try save up.
Thanks for your help
I'm a Nokia Launchpad Individual member and have been since May of this year (though I dare say I haven't ventured to post here before) - any target dates for sending out the email on how to get the device?
