Nokia and MS giving 100 Windows phones to devs in Czech Republic

100 devs to receive Lumias in Czech Republic

Now that Nokia's Lumia 710 and 800 have made it to the Czech Republic, Microsoft and Nokia have teamed up to try to spark up some developer interest in them.  In a new contest, they will be awarding Lumia 800s to the first 100 developers who get three apps to the Marketplace and total fifty downloads.  The contest has been running since February 1 and will continue until May 31, or until the 100 phones have been given out.  

Early reports are that Nokia sales have been pretty strong since coming to the Czech Republic.  The combined effort by Microsoft and Nokia to market their products to both consumers and developers alike seem to be paying off.  Hopefully, the strategy proves to be successful in other parts of the world as well.

The rules were updated later - now it's not specified which Lumia we will get, rumors are there will be around 70x Lumia 800 and 30x Luima 710.
