I was motivated to develop my first application for WP with the Nokia promotion for the first 500 published applications that match certain guidelines receive a Lumia 800.
I published my app - linked below :) but I wanted to see if anyone else had participated in this promotion as well and if they received confirmation (one way or another) of whether they had made the cut or not.
What my luck! I received an email today that I made it! The Lumia 800 is "en route" according to the email.
I'm in North America (California) - so for the user that was interested I'll let you know how it goes!
Thanks for the warm wecome guys! I was able to make some adjustments to my app this weekend and am starting to use the panorama control to get more "real estate" to provide instructions on the difficulty levels. So Psyched!
I entered the contest and won an 800 as well. I got it Tuesday night, went to the AT&T store yesterday to get a Micro SIM. I have now switched over from the Focus to this full time. I gotta say, the extra 400Mhz and speedier internet make a noticeable difference. Loving this phone, can't wait for the 900 (dual cams, LTE and bigger screen). Then i'll pass this on to my wife or daughter.
Bought Lumia 800 yesterday itself. It is awesome. Still exploring its features. Any suggestions or what it has in it which is unique among others?:)
some of the Nokia apps are unique. But honestly, the experience on any windows phone is about the same, which is kind of the point. To me, it is all about getting the homescreen setup with the apps and features you use the most, to make life more efficient.
