Ben the PC guy went to CES to challenge other phones to a speed competition to prove that Windows Phones are faster than the competition. The challenges were simple post to Facebook the fastest, take a photo and upload to Twitter that fastest, identify a song the fastest, etc. If Windows Phone lost the challenger would receive $100, but if you lose then you have to say that you just got smoked by a Windows Phone.
Windows Phone did really well actually winning 21 times and losing only twice. I guess a few others ” took one look at Live Tiles, built in search and built-in social networking and said ‘forget it’.” I don’t know how much I believe that, maybe if they didn’t have a smart phone. Being the iPhone fan boy I’m told I am, I would have challenged Ben to see who can play their favorite station on Pandora or check their voicemail from a Google Voice app or even play a show from their Hulu queue! SICK BURN!!!!!
