WIN a FREE Phone with like NO effort and attend the Windows Phone 7 Developer Launch
October 12th will be the Windows Phone 7 Developer Launch. There's an MSDN Simulcast event you can sign up for, that'll be a full day of training on writing Windows Phone apps.
In the US, there are also a lot of live in-person Free Events to learn Windows Phone 7 Development listed at http://www.msdnevents.com/wp7devlaunch. I encourage you to register now as they are filling up fast.
A friend asked me to put a Windows Phone 7 banner on my blog, and I said half-jokingly, what'll you give me? Then I realized it's less interesting if there's a banner on MY blog and more interesting if there's a banner on YOUR blog.
So, I brokered a deal where two of you (US only for now, sorry, I seriously tried) will win a free Windows Phone 7.
Here's the legal rules they wrote, but here's my four-step layman's version.
- Go get a Windows Phone 7 banner or badge
- Put the image on your blog
- Link the image to http://www.msdnevents.com/wp7devlaunch/
- Lie in wait
Now, they'll use Bingle/Gobing and a link: query to find two of you randomly, I'm sure, but even better, after you've done it, add a comment on this post and Iet everyone know!
Within 10 days after the final Windows Phone 7 developer launch event, they'll select TWO folks randomly. Your odds are good, friend. Like way less than 1 in a billion. We shall see. Go Go Go!

US only for now - Just for US man or just for US address? I'm from Russia, but I have US address, can I take part in competition?
Got to play around with a WP7 device at a launch event. It's a nice one!
Does need Verizon for best results, tho :).
Can't wait for the launch in Chicago on the 19th/20th.
I'll take off those ugly banners from my argentinian page, right now baby!!! :)
And good luck to everyone too!!!
I have created dedicated post for this event and posted your announcement and the images pointing to the url you have provided.
Here is the post:
Could really use this for development of mobile site & apps at a small college.

Here it is without the actual href link:

My blog is at: stevehiner.talksabout.net
This is the result that I got:
It seems like just the use of the anchor tags did it, though I see others here got it to work.
Please take a look and let me know what you think! And Scott/Microsoft, I could really use a Windows Phone 7! ;)
Wanting to know who won? Should I officially give up hope and go pick up a new crappy phone to replace my old crappy phone?
