Registration for the Microsoft Build 2012 opens up with new Windows Phone logo [Update: Sold out]

Update: We hope you reserved early because within one hour, Microsoft's BUILD event has sold out. 

Microsoft has today opened up registration for its Build 2012 developer event, which is to be held on October 30th. Set to be held at Microsoft's HQ in Redmond, Washington, the event will cover not only the upcoming Windows 8, but also Windows Phone 8, Windows Azure, Windows Server 2012, and Visual Studio 2012.

Pricing for Build 2012 will set attendees back by $2,095 for a standard pass (first 500 registrations can apply for 'early bird' passes priced at $1595), while a limited number of academic spots are going for $995. 

As well as the actual registration for Build 2012, the new Windows Phone logo is featured on the homepage alongside other Microsoft products that are being covered at the event.

As previously unveiled, the company has transitioned from the orb, to the squared tile, and now we're sporting the same logo as Windows to represent the unity between the two platforms. We're expecting to see some interesting announcements made at Build 2012 and will showing our faces on the floor. As well as soaking up the atmosphere we'll be relaying all details that are released, so be sure to tune in on the day.
