Yup, easily. I got an email from a Twitter thread, emailed, got redirected to my local Dev evangelist, exchanged a couple of emails detailing my app design intentions and got a device fedexed overnight. Did you email the Dev rep with the details of your app?
So you have to convince a person, who might not even respond to your email, that your application is a good idea, in order for you to get a dev-device?
See, I can't commit to actually ever releasing anything. I'm just a hobbyist with some spare-time who wants to write for a mobile platform.
