"You do not meet the requirement for App Hub. You must be 18 to register."
Ah well :(
Same, I get that error as well, funny thing is I am ACTUALLY 18, and for some reason, none of my accounts will let me register.
@DEMSP, yeah it's weird. I emailed them about the problem, lets see what happens :) I'd honestly love one of those phones!
I just got a reply from them...
"Received! We’ll look at all the entries early next week and let you know!"
I can't sign up and download the SDK lol. So it doesn't look like I have any chance whatsoever of getting one, I may aswell stick to Android development :/
Hi @jjmpsp, we have replied to your email with a way around this issue! Good luck with your app :)
I seriously think Android is much much better than Windows Phone 7 .. WP7 is equally as restricting as iOS in my opinion .. even though if i had to choose between iOS or WP7 then it would be WP7 all the way
I agree with you there, I do like the WP7 UI more than Android though.
