Microsoft 'smoked' in it's own competition

Marketing folks at Microsoft are in a bit of a pickle, after Microsoft's scheme to prove that Windows Phone software is faster than the competition has backfired.

Redmond cleared a marketing programme which claimed to award a $1000 laptop to anyone who could prove their iPhone or Android phone was quicker. The Smoked by Windows Phone campaign turned out to be a bit foggy when an Android user was shown to beat a Windows Phone and started to want recognition.

Sahas Katta of Skatter Tech used a Samsung Galaxy Nexus to beat the Windows Phone in a challenge which required a user to "bring up the weather of two different cities". However, it appears that the win has been denied 'just because'.
