I think I read somewhere that only "serious" devs would get it. I took that as... those who just paid $99 to get dev-unlocked aren't getting it.

Yeah, I also saw that. I wonder what's the process of filtering out "serious" devs. Maybe I'm serious, but suck at it it, and haven't produced anything yet.

I thought the serious dev comment had to do with handing out Mango dev phones, not releasing a beta.

I'm too lazy to pull up the tweet, but "serious" devs release apps and reach out to Microsoft; part of which I'm assuming means being active in their local MS dev groups. And yeah, it has to do with handing out Mango dev hardware. I haven't seen anything pertaining to releasing a beta. Pity; I'd get a second Focus just to try it.

Got my invite today. No app development yet for me, so don't think I fall into the "serious" category.

Once installed, look for Windows Phone Developer Tools/Windows Phone Developer Registration. Have your phone plugged in first. Enter your Live ID and the cert will get loaded onto your device.

Hey jimski, do I have to be validated by that geo company before it lets me register my device?

I'm jealous! I wonder how it works... suppose I find someone who will add me to their dev account (I'll even pay), would they need my phone or could I do everything at home?

P.S. if this is possible, I'll put in $$$ for a spot with anyone.

If you have a previous unlocked phone, you don't need a dev account. It never once asked for my dev info. Go figure.
