#SmokedbyWindowsPhone going global

The Microsoft Windows Phone blog reports that they have taken the Smoked by Windows Phone challenge global, running contests not just in a variety of US Microsoft stores, but also in Barcelona, Spain, Hong Kong, Jakarta and India.

They report in Jakarta they had a 50-strong team from Microsoft Indonesia running in the challenge in a local shopping mall, and in total engaged nearly 700 people, winning 640 and losing 50 challenges, and even being featured on local media.
