Microsoft giving away free phones to those with Android woes

Microsoft is charging into the smartphone war with all guns blazing this year. After launching Mango, the company built a giant Windows Phone in New York and gave away free devices to those who attended parties across the US. Now, the company is giving out devices to anyone with "Droid rage" from Android malware.

Ben the PC Guy on Twitter said today;

 

The Redmond based giant really is picking holes in their competitors' platforms. Back when WebOS was announced to be "dead" a few months ago, the company said they would give free phones and resources to any WebOS developer who wanted to switch and this appears to be a similar move to get those who are unhappy with Android to move away.

If you want to enter the competition, just tweet @benthepcguy with your story and the hashtag #droidrage to be in to win. Some great entries so far:

Are moves like this enough to get Microsoft back on top in the smartphone game? Only time will tell. Let us know your droid rage stories in the comments!
