Microsoft challenges Italy with the Smoked by Windows Phone campaign

WP Central

The Windows Phone team has taken the Smoked by Windows Phone challenge to Italy with a steady stream of contestants attempting to best the platform. Should they lose they would (as usual) have to hold up a sign and announce they've been smoked by a Windows Phone. But should they win, and this is the interesting part, they'd pocket a pair of headphones.

What's so interesting about the headphones? They're shaped like a giant phone.

Possibly the coolest prize from the challenge? The Windows Phone Italy team has been keeping everyone up-to-date with latest happenings on their Twitter account, paying particular attention to the charts which record the wins / loses. According to the photos published, Windows Phone appeared to have been holding its own successfully.

Check out more photos after the break. Via: Plaffo

Looks more like "Smoked by Hot Babes"  Can you take your old babe in, lose, and get a new one?

They should do it in Australia, and let me use my HTC Mozart, or lumia 800. Some prize that comming out of other countries are much better. I be seen those phones for $20 at the shops
