Microsoft Gave Everyone at BUILD Free Surface RT, Lumia 920

It's been a big month for Microsoft. With the launch of Windows 8, the Surface, and Windows Phone 8, the company would be forgiven for taking a little break. However, Redmond isn't resting on its laurels. After yesterday's Windows Phone 8 launch, the company has shifted its attention to BUILD, its yearly developer conference.

Kicking off today and running through to November 2, things got off to a roaring start today with some serious swag. That's right, those lucky enough to be at BUILD have been awarded a free Lumia 920 as well as a free Surface RT computer. As if that wasn't enough, Microsoft also gave everyone 100GB of free SkyDrive storage for their troubles, too.

Microsoft isn't the only company to give stuff away at its develop conference. In fact, it's usually Google that dishes out freebies at its annual Google I/O conference. In fact, at the most recent I/O, Google gave each attendee a free Nexus 7, a free Nexus Q, and a free Galaxy Nexus. Attendees were also given the opportunity to pre-order Google's Project Glass, which doesn't yet have a release date.

    I knew there had to be a good reason why the Surface RT sold out so fast...it just didn't make any sense.
