Microsoft kicks off rewards programme for UK Windows Phone developers


Microsoft have kicked off a reward programme for developers publishing apps to the Windows Phone marketplace.  For every app published in to the Windows Phone Marketplace the developer gets open point, the point can then redeemed against a Gyro Stealth Flyer Remote Control Helicopter or for 4 points you can get a  PocketCinema Projector, XBOX360 Console or 22 inch LED TV.

The catch is apps need to be published by the end of January 2012 and all you need is a AppHub membership.
