#smokedbywindowsphone Win $100 Or Maybe A New WP7

If you haven’t been watching anything about CES 2012 then you might have missed Microsoft’s little competition. It is called #smokedbywindowsphone. Basically it is a speed test of sorts between @benthepcguy and whomever wants to challenge him. The contest varies from person to person too instead of it being a lopsided test set by Microsoft with WP7 having an advantage. In fact, Andoid, iOS, or whomever the competitor is should have the advantage because the test is done based off what the challenger uses their phone for mostly.

WP7 Faster Than iPhone4s And Galaxy Nexus

So far I have seen the iPhone4s and Galaxy Nexus get #smokedbywindowsphone. And keep in mind the test was done to the advantage of the iPhone4s and the Galaxy Nexus because the tests were tailored to the challenger using those devices. Obviously if someone has great knowledge of both Android and WP7 or iOS and WP7 they could easily rig the test against WP7 if there is anything that Andoid/iOS are better at.

This is such a great competition because it shows people that WP7 can not only do what iOS and Android can but that it can actually do it faster. And to boot if you do win you get $100. If you lose it looks like you might get a free WP7, I assume as long as they last that is. Check it out on twitter by following @benthepcguy or searching for #smokedbywindowsphone.
