PDC attendees get free Windows Phone 7s

Looks like those lucky developers at PDC10 (see earlier mention) all received free phones today from Microsoft. At last count, that's nearly 1000 people who recived the Samsung Omnia 7--one of the most well received phones yet (other, non-paying attendees received the pre-production Taylor). While Microsoft skipped reporters in NYC a few weeks ago, it looks like MS knows where their bread and butter is: developers!
