Free Windows Phone 7 Devices for All…

Before you get too excited, I should clarify that it’s free Windows Phone 7 devices for all Microsoft employee’s and now interns at Microsoft have been added to that list.

Last week, it was announced that Microsoft will make devices running their latest mobile operating system available to all their employees as they are launched in each market around the world. They’re not the first to do this, both Apple and Google did the same with their devices.  Yesterday, while talking with interns, Ballmer was asked if Microsoft interns would also be receiving a free Windows Phone 7 device.  Ballmer replied “Recruiting doesn’t have the budget, but I do. So, yes!”

It’s a smart move to outfit the interns with devices because they will be returning to school after the term expires with a new Windows Phone 7 device to show off. :)
