THE PORTAL OF NEWS RELEATED TO NOKIA
This weekend, the time when you can wear your favorite sloppy shirts, stained shorts, and wedgie Skechers.
Microsoft, you see, believes your smartphones are baloneyphones. So this weekend, in all 14 Microsoft stores, it’s holding a “Smoked by Windows Phone” challenge.
This is not an invitation for you to bring your favorite ham or bacon to the shop in order to have it perfectly sizzled. Instead, it’s Microsoft’s entertaining attempt to prove that Windows Phones are simply fastest .
Please make sure that volume is low on your woofer this video gives bolttt…
It works like this: if your phone is demonstrably faster, you get $1,000. Well, actually a “Hunger Games” Special Edition PC, worth $1,000.
If it isn’t, you get the chance to swap your beloved gadget for a brand new Windows Phone. And you won’t even have to sign a contract.
Thankful of The Verge for pointing our eyes to this excitement. In this video you can see windows lose or you can say tie breaker with iPHONE ( Good news for ios lovers LOL : )
It seems that in previous challenges, there was merely $100 at stake. Now, with a “Hunger Games” PC in the balance, surely there will be thousands of willing participants.
One question some might have though is whether speed is the best reason to switch phones.
For some, perhaps. But there are all those emotional intangibles that also rear their vain heads. You know, the prettiness intangibles. (You can see the iPhone 4S beat the Windows Phone for speed, if not prettiness, in the video embedded below.)
The rules have even more specificities. Microsoft limits the areas in which the challenge will be made: “Pocket-to-Picture-to-Post, Real-Time Information with Live Tiles, Using the People Hub to Stay in Touch with the People You Care About Most, Updating Your Status Across Multiple Social Networks, and Local Scout (‘Challenge’).”
We Think this weekend can be more interesting to see..
