Microsoft offering free Windows Phone to Android malware victims

In a very “nasty” attempt, Microsoft has went to the extent of making a contest out of the Android malware victims and offering a free Windows Phone to the winner. This is a very bad move and marketing according to me. A company such as Microsoft should know better. Ben Rudolph, Microsoft’s Windows Phone “evangelist”, started the #droidrage campaign on Twitter in which you have to tell the unfortunate story of your malware attack.

Almost half of Symbian users would buy a Nokia Windows Phone smartphone

Symbian, as you all know, is almost dead. Nokia was once the leader in the whole world when it came to the market share in phones. This combined both feature phones and smartphones. But from a few years, Nokia has been losing its market share to Apple’s majestic iPhone and Google’s feature-rich and open-source platform, Android.

Nokia is paying developers to write apps for Windows Phone 7

Nokia has tied up with Microsoft to market and profit mutually. This means Microsoft will provide its OS platform for Nokia phones, which Nokia will implement on its phone and sell them. This agreement is profitable by both, if it works. This is because Nokia is losing its market share rapidly mostly to Apple’s iPhone and a lot of Android phones which constantly flood the smartphone market.
