When it comes to malware on our mobile devices, Android seems to be receiving the most flack for it, and not surprisingly Microsoft has decided to use that against Android in their latest #DroidRage campaign. As you can see in the tweet above, Microsoft is hoping to rekindle (unpleasant) memories that some Android users might have faced with malware on their mobile devices in the past by asking them to submit their stories, and person with the best/worst story will most likely find themselves winning a Windows Phone in the process. While Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform is a legitimately good operating system, the fact that iOS and Android are currently dominating the smartphone scene has made Microsoft resort to not-so-traditional forms of marketing in order to win customers over.
Of course this isn’t to say that Windows Phone devices are 100% secure and that it cannot be infected by malware, but until Windows Phone starts seeing the same amount of malware that Android does, we guess Microsoft will be using it to their advantage. Either way if you’re hoping to win yourself a free Windows Phone device, tweet your own horror story with the #DroidRage hashtag and you could find yourself with a brand new device.
