Microsoft cures Droid Rage by giving away Windows Phone handsets
Even though the recently discovered Android “malware” threat turned out to be not as scary as previously reported, Microsoft decided to take advantage of the situation. And could have they chosen a better way to do that than letting Ben “PC Guy” Rudolf give away a handful of Windows Phone smartphones to those who got their Android devices contaminated?
Ben asked those who suffered a malware infection to share their stories via Twitter. He then picked the 20 stories that he liked the most and awarded their authors with a brand new Windows Phone device. What is the make and model of the awards is not exactly clear, but during the Smoked by Windows Phone challenge, at least one of the contenders received an HTC Trophy.
Interestingly, some Android users who shared their frustration with their smartphone report random reboots and freezes, which are issues that we know could have not been caused by the exaggerated malware outbreak from last week. What's more is that others blame Android for the junk mail that they receive, as ridiculous as it may sound. Having apps constantly loaded in RAM is also viewed as a weakness of Android, even though this is not necessarily a bad thing, but rather a common misconception. Still, 20 of those enraged by Android users are soon to be enjoying their new Windows Phone device, and we hope that their frustration will be a thing of the past.
