Free Windows Phones for Disgruntled Android Users

Microsoft wants to hear your Android-based horror stories… it may just land you a free Windows Phone device.

Are you a disgruntled Android device owner who is just sick and tired of all that malware plaguing Google’s OS? Microsoft wants to hear all about it. In fact, the company may even give you a free Windows Phone 7 device after hearing your #droidrage.

According to Graham Cluley of security firm Sophos, Windows Phone “evangelist” Ben Rudolph is the mastermind behind Microsoft’s latest scheme to get consumers interested in Windows Phone 7. As Cluley points out, the Redmond company is hitting below the belt, seemingly promoting Android’s lack of proper malware protection rather than the benefits of Windows Phone 7.

The scheme was started by Rudolph on Twitter, using the #droidrage hashtag while linking to articles regarding Android malware. Rudolph claims that he will provide a Windows Phone “upgrade” to the “5 best/worst” Android malware encounters. “Been nailed with Android malware and have #Droidrage? Share you story with me…you might win an upgrade to a #windowsphone!” he promises in a Tweet.
