Following what looks to be a massive adware outbreak on the Android marketplace, Microsoft's Ben Rudolph is looking to ease the pain of 20 affected users by giving them free Windows phones. Rudolph asked what may be 5 million victims to share their stories via Twitter today, in hopes that their "Droidrage" might be cured. Those who have the best stories (or worst, depending on how you look at it), will receive one of the 20 devices. It's not clear what kind of phone winners will receive, but hey, a free WP7 phone is a free WP7 phone!
Microsoft has been pretty keen on these light-hearted promotions, pitting Windows Phone up against other mobile operating systems. This is the second time that Android users have received such an offer, the first being back in December, when a smaller malware outbreak occurred. And at CES, Ben Rudolph was challenging attendees to speed tests in the "Smoked by Windows Phone," which may even become a traveling affair.
