A new year, and an offer from Nokia

Greetings all,

Ok, now that a new year is beginning I'm freed from my "no more emails" pledge.  ;)  Hopefully you'll all like this one.

I have a nice number of Lumia 800s on hand now.  Some I will give away in event and drawings & contests, some as individual developer incentives, and some as rewards to community builders.  But I will also reserve a small number for a local lending program.

I'm thinking a pool of 5 devices, with a loan period of 1 month.  The idea is that they will be loaned out at one monthly meetup and returned at the following monthly meetup.  I can be flexible on terms, but understand that we just hit 107 members (and have about 1 to 3 new ones join per week) and 5 devices only go so far.  If demand ever exceeds the available number, we'll have to hold a lottery to determine who gets one.

I realize many of you are still wanting Windows Phone 8 devices but unfortunately I have none to provide at this time.  BUT: I expect the 7.8 update any day now (sorry, I don't have actual inside info on this one!) and the Lumia 800s are still viable devices even without it.

Also, another reminder: while my latest "app accounting" promotion has expired, I extended my incentive contest to January 11.  I'd like to see these prizes claimed! Especially the backpack for bringing in new members.  Note that I will conduct a drawing for the app accounting winner very soon.

I will of course create new contests and incentives soon as well.

Thanks,

Randy
