#SmokedByWindowsPhone extended - again
No it’s not Groundhog Day, it is just another week where Microsoft has extended the #SmokedByWindowsPhone end date by another week. The latest update to Microsoft’s website states that the challenge is now open through May 3, 2012.

Honestly, it seems a little strange that Microsoft keeps extending it week after week. If they want to make this their “thing” so to speak, they should just do that. Granted, they have changed the prizes around since the beginning, but really it’s the same old thing.

As if it needs to be explained again, competitors use a phone of their choice to complete various tasks head-to-head against a Windows Phone. Winners receive a $1000 gift card while losers still walk away with $25.

So, if you think you got what it takes to smoke a Windows Phone and net yourself a cool grand, get to a Microsoft Retail Store before May 3rd, or just wait until they extend it – again, and go whenever you please.

So, some trained and paid WP operatives are able to beat commoners walking down the street on a bunch on canned tasks that they have undoubtedly rehearsed while utilizing phones that won't get updated WP 8 when it is released.....not impressed.

I beat them with a SGS2 earlier this month. I dont know why people are not trying this. You have nothing to lose. If you just prepare for the challenges, you can beat it (instructions on how to win are on the internet). Any newer highend androids can win.
