Microsoft sponsors a ‘beautifully different’ horse, gives chance to win a white Nokia Lumia 900


In one of the more unusual marketing events, Microsoft is sponsoring the horse Hansen in the Kentucky Derby this Saturday, the only white horse in the field, and is offering punters a chance to win one of two white Nokia Lumia 900 handsets.

To win players need to follow @WindowsPhone, then send them a tweet using the hashtag #TrifectaTweet with the horses you think will be in first, second, and third place. The contest ends Saturday at 5 p.m. Pacific, and you must be a U.S. resident 18 or over to enter. See the official sweepstakes rules for all the details.
