After the controversial Smoked by Windows Phone uploading picture to Facebook dispute yesterday, Ben the PC Guy offered own WMPowerUser reader, Aaron (AlienSix) a rematch. Aaron accepted the offer and returned to the Microsoft CES booth.
Ben updated the rules of the contest, and declared that the finish line this time aroundÂ would be when the user clicks the “Post” button. This means that the contest does not include the actual data upload,Â and does not includeÂ the loading screen after the user clicks the Post button.
Aaron informed us thatÂ the HTC TitanÂ beat his Samsung Galaxy S2 byÂ “literally under a second.” Nevertheless, he was awarded with a HTC Arrive, so he left happy!
This was a very close victory,Â but Windows Phone was the clear victor at otherÂ contests likeÂ checking theÂ weather (thanks, Live Tiles!), updating multiple social networks (Me tile FTW), and identifying the current song playing (integrated Bing Music search). Watch Microsoft’s video below to see the highlights of day one, including multiple wins for WindowsÂ Phone, andÂ one close loss to the iPhone 4S uploading a pic to Twitter.
