Almost 50,000 people have been #SmokedByWindowsPhone

As was reported here a few days ago, the #SmokedByWindowsPhone challenge continues at Microsoft Stores, despite claims by some reporters that it had ended.

Now Microsoft has updated their Facebook cover picture to reflect new stats on how many people have lost the challenge, showing that since the contest started in mid-March, Windows Phone has won 46,704 times and lost only 588 times, giving it a very healthy success rate of 98.75%.

Consequently, the contest, which should have ended yesterday, has been extended until 10 May, after which it will most likely be extended again.

Spread the word, people.
