Nokia Takes "Smoked By Windows Phone" to the Mean Streets of London

By Sam Gibbs on at

After Microsoft’s “Smoked by Windows Phone” promotion backfired badly the other day, you’d think Nokia might want to steer well clear, but oh no. Nokia’s taking its version, the “Lumia Challenge”, out on the streets of London for Britons to have a crack at it.

Beat the Lumia 800 and win yourself a tenner -- not quite the same stakes as Microsoft's £600 laptop. If you lose you have to pose like a mug for the camera. It doesn’t sound quite as obnoxious as getting “smoked" by Windows Phone, but it’s pretty much the same thing. I just hope if Nokia ever gets beat it actually holds its hands up and admits defeat, unlike Microsoft. [YouTube via WPCentral]
