You Get a Windows Phone 7! And You Get a Windows Phone 7!

Microsoft has gone the ways of Oprah! Huzzah! ZD Net's Microsoft connoisseur, Mary Jo Foley, retweeted a company employee mentioning a Microsoft promise to give a WinPho 7 handset to every single one of their 90,000+ employees in the world!

Let's tip our hats to Microsoft for their amazing attempt at word-of-mouth advertising. 90,000 WinPho 7 devices in the world in front of people will be a great way to get consumers excited about the new line of handsets! We've been concerned about how they were going to market and compete with something brand new and different. This might play to their advantage, so long as the units work perfectly in the wild.

I just hope one of these doesn't get left at a bar and taken home by a journalist. That person may get beaten with the phone and then dragged down a road. At different times, of course - that WinPho security team can't do more than one thing at a time.
