Microsoft did so well in the challenge, only 3 losses out of almost 30 challenges, that it has taken the stunt across the globe. The Smoked by Windows Phone event has hit Hong Kong for the weekend. The event is scheduled to run from Friday to Saturday and the ante has been upped to HK$1000, which is approximately $130 US.
Friday’s results are already in and so far Windows Phone is boasting flawless victories. Paul the Windows Phone Guy has taken on 11 challengers and has defeated them all. The fatalities include an Apple iPhone 4, Apple iPhone 4S, HTC Sensation XL, Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung Galaxy Note, and an unknown brand and model of a Japanese Android Phone.
All the action is being filmed and broadcast onto large screens so that those passing by can watch the challenge. So far they only had a view of Windows Phone dominating, but we will have to see if any challengers have what it takes over the next two days to take down Windows Phone and claim their prize.
