Dare To Live Windows Phone starts on London's West End

Dare To Live Windows Phone starts on London's West End
First we saw #SmokedByWindowsPhone. Then we saw BlownAwayByNokia. Now, Microsoft and Nokia have teamed up to bring Dare To Live Windows Phone to the streets of London. Like the other two events, Dare To Live Windows Phone involves a contest  between a Windows Phone and a smartphone running a competing platform. A task is selected and the first phone to complete it wins. If the challenger beats the Windows Phone, he receives £20, which is approximately $32.

If a challenger loses, he is required to take on a dare offered up by the Windows Phone team, like tightrope walking. Besides a heaping dose of humiliation, the losers also receive a "DARED" Windows Phone shirt. FYI, the Windows Phone model used in the challenge was a white Nokia Lumia 800. If you're in the U.K. and want to participate in the challenge, check the sourcelink for the schedule.

I guess Microsoft got sick of giving away phones and laptops in the Smoked By WP challenge in the States. I wouldn't even bother going down there for £20.

I will choose setting any picture as wallpaper on homescreen, and I'm damn sure I will win this one, as WP don't have feature for setting wallpapers........... :)

Microsoft gives only that tasks in which it is certain for them to win and there are many things in which microsoft doesn't even come close.. The competition would be fair if the users were actually allowed to choose the task If that would be me then i would choose to send a file to other smartphone via Bluetooth and it is sure that i would win because there is no such bluetooth file transfer feature available in the Windows Phone 7 haha..!! and they would have gone all the way because windows phone cannot even offer this single functionality.. Windows Phone 7 is a nice OS but it would be the best if they remove all the sucking limitations that really sucks

Also no usb mass storage which is the most necessary thing i need because can carry files to work without the need of pen drive... Skype cant run in background! Windows phone can be a great OS if they can remove all the limitations and make apps CHEAPER same app for Android are free or available for less than $1

there's one thing called push/toast notification, unlike android that waste battery life and make the experience horrible.

Before praising the windows phone battery life go and check the battery tests of the nokia lumia 800 and 710 in gsmarena I think it is enough to shut your mouth..!!
