Last year at Worldwide Partner Conference 2011, we announced the launch of the Windows Phone discount program for our partners that had earned a competency within the Microsoft Partner Network. Through this special discount offer, Microsoft partners who currently hold at least one competency may be eligible for savings that make it easy and cost-effective to acquire Windows Phone devices and services. In an expansion of the offer, the Windows Phone discount program now includes monthly specials with even bigger savings on devices through our participating device retailer, eXpansys.

For March, the special offering is a fully unlocked Samsung Omnia W for USD $299.99.
