Samsung serious about its app store? You bet! Free Omnia 2’s for all developers


Windows Mobile developers in UK better hurry and get in on this amazing deal.

For today (WED 28 OCT 2009) only Samsung is offering a FREE Samsung Omnia 2 (amazing device with 3.7 inch AMOLED WVGA screen and 800 Mhz processor) for any developer willing to port their app to their device and application store.

To claim the prize you need to be able to attend the UK Developer Day where the devices will be available to collect on the evening.

The developer day is:

Samsung Application Store UK Developer Day
Monday 02 November 2009, 6pm to 10pm
Bonetti Suite, Chelsea FC, Fulham Road, Chelsea. SW6 1HS

There will be a champagne reception, followed by a series of short informal presentations. The event is free and offered on the understanding that you wish to accept a free Omnia II device. To accept this device you must agree to port your Windows Mobile app by Thursday 10 December 2009 and distribute it on Samsung Application Store.

There are a limited number of seats available for this event, so unfortunately they won’t be able to accept all developers. Instead Samsung will be choosing developers based on their responses to their online registration form  (it does not seem to ask any particularly unsafe information).

Selected developers will receive an invitation by Thursday 29 October 2009. Any questions regarding this offer will be answered at this e-mail address:
