Microsoft Claims Big Takeup of Free Windows Phones

Microsoft’s Bill Cox said Thursday that over 3,200 Android users had taken up company Windows Phone evangelist Ben Rudolph’s challenge to describe their virus “horror stories.” As a challenge, Rudolph had offered a free Windows Phone to those who could recount the most convincing stories of Android malware instances. He didn’t say how many of these would be getting devices.

The company is known to regularly seize on chances to give away Windows Phones to potentially influential users, and in this case was taking advantage of a seeming upswing in the occurrences of Android malware. Just this week, Google pulled a number of fraud apps from Android Market.  Android malware has claimed 472 percent and is an issue both on and off of Android Market.

How many of the 3,200 are true stories isn’t certain. But due to human nature, you need write off some as people just wanting to get a free phone
