Microsoft and ThinkDigit have been running a contest in which they give Indian developers a free phone for every 3 apps they submit to Marketplace.
Developers still have to pay the $99 registration free, but this will get reimbursed in the form of Rs. 5,000 worth of gift vouchers to all successful developers who submit 3 Apps.
The bad news is that the contest, which has been running since January 2012, will be closing on the 29th February, which hardly leaves any time for those not already aware of the contests.
Porting two apps from Android, BlackBerry, iOS and Symbian will also earn developers a Windows Phone device and the first 100 women developers to submit a single app each will also get Windows Phone devices.
If you have 3 app ideas ready to turn into apps very quickly, and am based in India, read more at ThinkDigit here.
Thanks Arun for the tip.
