Microsoft Canada betters Microsoft India challenge, build 2 applications and get a Windows phone free

This week, we covered Microsoft India ‘s offer for students which offered students a free Windows Phone device for four applications, including one AppMakr application. Microsoft Canada on the other hand is offering everyone, not just students, a free Windows Phone mango device for two quality applications. Yes, don’t make those silly RSS reader applications via Appmakr. It’s not as easy as it sounds though, you have to make sure you pay attention to the quality check list to ensure your applications qualifies as quality application by Microsoft Cananda. Good news is that not only is MS Canada giving you a free device, they would also feature your application your application on MSDN websites.

IMO, that’s the best deal you can get anywhere. Go grab the RTW build of the Mango SDK. Fire up your Visual Studio and expression blend.┬áLet’s make some apps!
