Microsoft making hay from Blackberry Outage

The Blackberry messaging network had another extended outage earlier today, and never one to let a good PR opportunity pass, Microsoft paid to promote the above tweet as a result on the twitter search term “Blackberry Outage”.

While Microsoft had its own Hotmail issues themselves earlier this week, the distributed nature of their Exchange ActiveSync business infrastructure, with no one central point of failure, means Windows Phone users will always be able to get their work done.

Microsoft is currently in a life and death struggle with Blackberry for the 3rd spot in the smartphone market share rankings, and has already passed the other OS in most parts of the world.
