Smoked by Windows Phone Comes Again; Get a Windows Phone or a Hunger Games PC for Free

March 26, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

You don’t often find bets which benefit you, no matter you win it or lose it. But Microsoft is extending such a rare chance to you. Here you get a free Hunger Games Special Edition PC free if you win the bet and if you lose it, you get a new Windows Phone free.

While bringing their ‘Smoked by Windows Phone’ competition to gadget lovers again, Microsoft picked its retail stores as the field for the battle. Through the competition, they want to make you understand their point that Windows Phone devices are simply faster than those running on other platforms.

The offer runs till March 29 within which you can visit a Microsoft store and put your phone in competition with a Windows Phone for completing certain tasks like clicking a picture and posting it to your social network and the lot.

If your phone does it faster than the Windows Phone, you get a Hunger Games Edition HP Folio 13 ultrabook which otherwise costs you $1000. Things will be better even if you find your smartphone not able to complete the task as fast as the Windows Phone, since you can trade it off with a free Windows Phone.

Actually, each retail store is given only 10 pieces of the notebook to give away, so run for it if you have a faster phone. Losers who do not care about trading their phones can just trade them off for a contract free Windows phone.

If you lose the bet and don’t want to part with your existing phone you can opt to pick a Windows Phone by signing up a contract with the carrier who has that phone. But remember, you won’t get the Lumia 800 bundle; any other Windows Phone is OK.
