Early Windows Phone developer device embraces the Ballmer

Developers!

Today we've seen how big giant companies can have a sense of humor (Exhibit A: Nokia) and we'll continue that with Microsoft (who have never been above self deprication, see Rivera's famous example). What you see above is a LG GW910 Panther running Windows Phone 7.0. These were seeded out to developers even before Windows Phone went public (remember all of those early sightings?).

What's funny though of course is the lil' message Microsoft had emblazoned on the package for the device, adopting Ballmer's famous sweaty credo which, yes, we'll post after the break in full re-mix form.

Because it never gets old.

Update: Turns out, Mr. Brandon Watson was the culprit behind the idea. Brilliant!
