Microsoft dishing out free Windows Phones to “Droidrage” sufferers

Remember those text message issues on Windows Phone? If we’re honest there’s not a massive chance of your phone getting trashed, but the possibility of your Messaging Hub going AWOL is possible.

So why, we may ask, are Microsoft mocking Android malware victims? The marketing stunt is running on Twitter, with BenthePCGuy – a “Windows Phone evangelist” – dishing out five Windows Phone devices to Android virus victims. One of the tweets in question reads

Do you have #droidrage from Android malware? Tell me your story…and I might upgrade you to a #windowsphone!

There’s another similar tweet here. Now that’s pretty bad timing if you ask us, and a bit below the belt too.
