Just as I thought. Pitting a Windows phone expert up against some guy off the street. Then showing 1-second cuts from these "competitions". What were the rules? They showed one person using Siri (with ATT's slow network?) but never showed Android and Google Maps searching for directions. Their video is nothing but a 2-minute ad and not showing any results from a test. All typical Microsoft trickery.
What you have to be an vendor expert to use your Android or Apple phone, how sad and perhaps a testimonial to their poor design, plus Ben isn't the one deciding on what the race will be, so likely he is at a disadvantage given its something the competitor does everyday.
Have you looked into the rules of Smoked by a Windows phone, I very much doubt it as then you would know they are both using the same network. From Ben's Blog ( »windowsteamblog.com/windows_phon···one.aspx
THE FINE PRINT:
1) The great news for you as a challenger is that Im not going to force you into a specific scenario; well make the call together based on the things that you do every day on your smartphone.
2) Once we have that set, well connect to one of my mobile hotspots so we both have equal network footing.
3) Even if you lose, theres probably something pretty great in it for you. Trust me.
4) Windows Phone users arent eligible to enter. I already know how fast your phone is.
Sorry the Windows Phone is for real and denial isn't just a river in Egypt.
