MIX10 attendees to get free Windows Phone 7 series phones?

Microsoft-Windows-Phone-7-Series-MWC-2010-officialRumours are running rife that Microsoft will be giving away free Windows Phone 7 series phones to all MIX10 attendees to prime the developer pump. The move would emulate a similar action by Google recently, who gave away Nexus One’s to Android’s Developers, and much poorer Palm who is only giving developers a 20% discount on handsets.

While the move is clearly not without precedent, and Microsoft often gives developers deep discounts on Windows Mobile handsets, in this particular case Microsoft would be giving away alpha software on beta hardware, which does seem rather unlikely.

I am sure many MIX10 developers will continue to dream however … 😉
