Windows Phone Developer Fee

Microsoft has announced today plans to slash its Windows Phone developer registration fee to just $8 for 8 days in an effort to get more developers on-board with the company's mobile platform.

The fee, which is usually $99, will be applied to all new registrations in the allotted time frame - the next 8 days as for as we're aware. Be sure to head on over to the Windows Phone Developer Centre for more information when it's available.

Update: According to the Windows Blog:

"As an added incentive, for the next 8 days individual developers can register for a Dev Center account for just $8 (a 92 percent savings). Please note because this is a very limited time offer. You’ll be charged $99 USD or equivalent in your local currency, and we’ll refund the difference in the next 30 to 45 days. Watch for more details on Dev Center soon."
