Winner of the #captionthatlumia" contest announced, wins a brand new Nokia Lumia 900

Winner of the #captionthatlumia
Microsoft's Ben Rudolph had received a tweet from one of his followers that showed a picture of a bar of soap lying next to a white Nokia Lumia 900. The handset was lying on its screen and the sender asked Twitter members to caption it. Rudolph thought the idea was so good that he decided to turn it into an official contest. Using the hashtag #captionthatlumia, Rudolph offered a brand new Nokia Lumia 900 to the person sending in the best caption. The winner would get to choose the color of his choice.

It took a heck of a lot of scrubbing but I finally got all of the cyan out

Rudolph said he received 1,899 responses with some referring to other Windows contests (#soapedbyWindowsPhone) and one referring to the Dos Equis commercials (I don’t always bathe, but when I do, it’s with a Lumia 900). The winning caption was "It took a heck of a lot of scrubbing but I finally got all of the cyan out".

Rudolph picked two runner-up winners, each of whom will receive a Windows Phone swag pack. The first runner-up read "The perfect Finnish," while the second was a haiku which went like this: "Lumia so lean, Makes bar of soap look unclean, Lumia haiku". It looks like there are quite a few people with too much time on their hand.

Meh, the HTC Titan is prettier, and better built, I'm still waiting for new ones on ebay to drop to $200, then I'll pick one up. But since it doesn't look like they are getting Apollo, I dunno. (Microsoft is COLD, throwing all early adopters under the bus like that)

Yeah, but Google didn't declare that ALL devices running GB won't be getting ICS, A lot won't but some will. My mom has a Droid X2, personally I like it...

alright well microsoft is just upfront about it… and it hasnt actually been confirmed that past devices wont get the update… i agree microsoft should update them, but their logic that it isnt worth it is understandable for micrsoft, but somewhat screws nokia

The new dove body bar leaves your lumia feeling smooth and clean from that pesky android software

Windows Phone 7.5 is CE kernel right ?
Windows Phone 8 is NT kernel.

The desktop Windows 7 was also CE kernel and the update to desktop Windows 8 consumer previes in NT kernel is possible ?

I think the update from 7.5 to 8 will be possible :) (think about the official word of microsoft, saying that all current app will work, what a hint :) ).
