Microsoft Developers To Receive 25,000 Free Windows Phones from Nokia

This week Nokia and Microsoft announced plans to give developers 25,000 new Lumia 800 smartphones running the Windows Phone OS. Microsoft hopes to entice up to 100,000 developers in the next eight months, which is how long Nokia will be giving the phones away.
