, went to the web and then was the focus of television commercials. Now the contest heaqds to Microsoft's retail location.
Can your phone beat a Windows Phone?
The challenges are Pocket to Picture to Post, Using the People Hub to Stay in Touch with the People You Care About Most, Updating Your Status Across Multiple Social Networks
andLocal Scout. Obviously, if you already have a Windows Phone, you are excluded from taking the challenge. If you win, Microsoft will give you a new Hunger Games HP Folio 13 laptop worth a cool $1,049. And even if you lose, Microsoft will give you any Windows Phone that you want, excluding the Nokia Lumia 800 bundle. You can receive the free phone without a contract if you give up your current smartphone. If you want to keep your current phone and the free Windows Phone model, you will have to sign a 2-year deal.
