If you have published a PhoneGap application to any of the existing app stores (and if you haven't, then you really have need to get on it!) then you should consider taking Microsoft's Windows Phone Porting Challenge. Simply port your application and test it in the Windows Phone Emulator and then publish it to the Windows Phone Store by June 30th, 2013. Prizes for winners include Surface Pros and Windows devices. To be clear, those of you with Macs (like myself) can test with VMFusion. I have and have had success seeing my content show up on my Windows Phone device. To help you get started, here's an introductory video on PhoneGap and Windows Phone.

Analysts agree that a mix of emulators/simulators and real devices are necessary to optimize your mobile app testing - learn more in this white paper, brought to you in partnership with Sauce Labs.
