Oh no, they didn't! Looks like Android is getting served, and Microsoft is encouraging some serious playa-hatin' with the promise of a free phone. Oh yes, they did.
Ben Rudolph is all up in Android's grill on Twitter--the Microsoft Windows Phone "evangelist" is offering to give away Windows phones to folks who share the best Android malware horror stories on Twitter with the hash tag #droidrage. Another tweet from Microsoft's official feed seems to confirm that the contest is legit. Damn, the smartphone wars are getting hella-harsh, bro.
No word on exactly what type of Windows phone is being given away, but the Droid haters have been happy to oblige anyhow, like this dis from Lee Whittington:
Owning a Droid is like an exwife. Good 4 a little while then keeps u angry the rest of ur (marriage) till its over. #droidrage
Brutal. And that's just the beginning. Surely it's become even uglier since I wrote this.
One time I was walking through the desert on Tatooine, talking on my mobile when R2D2 mugged me. #DroidRage Do I get my free phone now?
Clever, Peter, but clearly your problem has nothing to do with the phone--it's more likely that the other Android in your scenario hasn't had a firmware update in three decades! Admittedly though, R2D2 and C3PO both have kind of a "metro" feel to them...
