Yahoo! Employees to get free Lumia 920 with Wireless Charging plates

Yahoo CEO, Marissa Mayer is the struggling company's 7th CEO in 5yrs, and what's even more amazing is that is is the youngest (at 37yrs old) hottest CEO with a net worth of $300million, who is also expecting a baby boy next month October. Now how's that for amazing people of 2012.

Anyway, I digress, the story here is that Marissa Mayer has offered every Yahoo! employee a choice to pick from either iPhone5, a few Android phones and the Lumia 920 even though it isn't out yet).

In an internal memo seen here:

"We have a very exciting update to share with you today - we are announcing  Yahoo! Smart Phones, Smart Fun!  As of today, Yahoo is moving off of blackberries as our corporate phones and on to smartphones in 22 countries.  A few weeks ago, we said that we would look into smartphone penetration rates globally and take those rates into account when deciding on corporate phones. Ideally, we'd like our employees to have devices similar to our users, so we can think and work as the majority of our users do.
Moving forward, we'll offer you a choice of devices as well as provide monthly plans for the data and phone.
The smartphone choices that we are including in the program are:
* Apple iPhone 5
* Android:
    - Samsung Galaxy S3
    - HTC One X
    - HTC EVO 4G LTE
* Windows Phone 8:
    - Nokia Lumia 920
We're getting started right away and taking orders starting now."

Here's a tweet from Nokia conversations' Doug Dawson:
While the Lumia 920 isn't here yet, Doug urges them to be patient as the wait is worth their while, as they will also be getting wireless charging plates. what a lucky bunch!
With the way US carriers are, I doubt US carriers will be offering this same deal to users, they will much rather sell the accessories separately.
