Microsoft gives away 5000 Samsung Windows 8 tablets to developers at its BUILD conference
Even before Microsoft started its long awaited BUILD conference today where they previewed the impressive new Windows 8 platform, rumors indicated that Microsoft was going to do something especially generous for developers in attendance.

Just as expected, Microsoft decided to hand out 5,000 Samsung manufactured Windows 8 tablets to attendees of its BUILD conference – showing the kind of commitment they have with the new platform. Considered to be the unsung heroes, Microsoft will require the backing and support of the developer community to enable Windows 8 to succeed on a whole new level. Of course, this wicked gift will enable developers to go out and concoct innovative new things with the tablet platform.

Surprisingly, these Samsung manufactured Windows 8 tablets cost about $1,099 each and feature some serious hardware under the hood. In fact, it features an 11.6” Super PLS display with a resolution of 1366 x 768, 2nd generation Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB SSD, microSD card slot, and free 3G access to AT&T’s network for a single year.

Quite the generous free offer don’t you think?
