    Our patron is handing out free phones to just about everybody, so I just asked him on twitter for a new shiny phone aswell.

    Lets hope he reads all the tweets directed at him! Atleast I know more about phones than that Molly from CNET.

    I dont think he is just handing them out to anyone. I think he is looking for people are devs for creating apps. I do think this is great as it will garner more intrest in WP7. Lots of great developers out there who just have not gotten the shot....Well here is your chance!

    I so suggest everyone to go follow brandon on twitter, he provides inciteful information. He was chatting to Blake Griffin yesterday about him switching to WP7. Pretty cool!

    He's also giving them to "famous" people hoping for a good review, and good publicity for WP7. Even if the individuals don't like WP7, Microsoft still looks like the good guy by giving $1,000 to charity. Pretty smart idea really, very cheap advertising in comparison to a full ad campaign.

    Well its worth a shot right!

    But I do think he is doing a great job promoting Windows Phone, he's probably more effective than all those million dollar ad campaigns put together.
