    So does it mean that we have to order it again once we get the email?

    Re: Free Developer Devices

    Oh. I'm not very happy with the communications, it's already a month and a half since the initial announcement and then it was said that there would be more information available soon. Then there were some devices in the DDP page and now this wizard_hu's announcement, with very little detail overall. For developers enthusiastic about the Lumias, it's not very nice to be excited about getting one of these devices to develop for only to be disappointed soon thereafter.

    Anyway, none of us should of course feel entitled to free devices, I find that notion greedy and stupid. It's just the emotional rollercoaster of excitement and disappointment that makes happy developers sad.

    Re: Free Developer Devices

    The accidental finding of the giveaway devices on the DDP page should be treated as some positive progress in my opinion, but Nokia will certainly communicate it on a larger scale when the distribution starts. And also, people will get an e-mail about it.
    What happens to the existing orders is a technical detail in my opinion. They might have survived the removal, but it will get clarified in the announcement I guess. Also, recently there is a nice tracking page for device orders, so you will probably see what is happening (at least the current Launchpad members) when it happens.

    I dont think thats something we need to know. There was a mistake for whatever reason and Nokia does not have to justify it. Its a free phone that represents a huge investment from Nokia and therefore I'm sure that they want to be sure that people that will get it will be using it for the benefit of the platform.

    My hope is that anyone (including me) that had it available by mistake, will be get one If not... well... live goes on.

    Re: Free Developer Devices

    It looks like some people have started getting e-mails. I'm one of the people who got a free E7 back in February, but my Launchpad account expired, and I haven't got an email yet.

    Shockreaction: do not worry, I am not a Launchpad member, and I simply received one-time DDP access for ordering the E7 in March. So it is not an issue.

    Re: Free Developer Devices

    Some posts have been removed due to possible violation of an NDA and/or pressuring others to do such violation. The posts may get restored later, I do not know for sure. Thank you for your understanding.

    Oops, I didn't realize my posting would risk NDA violation. Sorry for that and thanks for clarification of communications I complained about in post #47 . And seasons greetings to everyone at the forum!

    In the parallel thread, http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...for-Developers, you can find a recent (posted around 10 minutes ago) clarification message in the topic from Ron Liechty.
