    Is there a way to purchase a Nokia Windows Phone 8 device for development testing?

    I am current developing a internal Windows Phone 8 application and like to test it on a Windows Phone 8 device. Is there way to purchase a regular Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 device for development and test purpose? Please advice! Thank you!

    You could use any Lumia device, and use the development ools to register it as your development device, and then you could use it normally with teh tools. No special HW really needed.

    The Nokia Lumia 520 would be cheapest Windows Phone 8 device to buy at the moment, assuming you don't need a front camera or NFC - if you do, then choose the Lumia 620.

    Also you can always use the Nokia RDA service which you can test your app on real devices for free.

    (RDA=Remote Device Access, you can find it in the Devices 'menu' above)
