Microsoft Giving All Workers Windows Phone 7 Device

Posted by at 8:03 am on October 29, 2010

Microsoft’s Guy Gilbert overnight  told Network World that every Microsoft employee is getting a Windows Phone 7 device. While he didn’t say which devices were going out, the group leader for Windows Phone 7 said all 89,000 full-time workers would receive a phone.

When the iPhone launched, Apple gave out  free iPhones to full-time staff both as a reward and to have them get familiar with the product.

Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb of the Xbox Live team is well-known for using an iPhone as one of his devices, for example, while other staff have been  teased by Steve Ballmer for owning competing hardware.

Developers attending the PDC10 conference were also getting phones of their choice from different manufacturers, but they need to provide their own service.
