By this time you would probably are aware of the new mobile platform from Microsoft. Yes i am talking about Windows Phone 7. Windows Phone 7 is the new mobile platform from Microsoft which is likely to compete with the Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android platforms. For more information on Windows Phone 7 here is the official site from Microsoft – http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-in/default.mspx
Personally i am excited about Windows Phone 7 and soon will be migrating to that platform (no i am not yet on WinPh7). I have been blown away by the Zune and Xbox integration that the phone brings. Metro UI is one of the best design i have come across which is so simple yet clean enough to engage the user. Well the merits and advantages are many folds to discuss here. Lets just say that “I Love Windows Phone”.
This post is not about discussing on Windows Phone 7. Rather this post is about a cool giveaway from one of the sites which goes by the name ILoveWindowsPhone.in. Yes its a Indian site and its giving out some cool giveaways for all the Windows Phone lovers. So do stay on and read till the end to know all about the giveaway.
Because of the active community work that i do, i get to meet a lot of great personality from the Microsoft technology side. One such personality is Abhishek Baxi. Here is Abhishek personal site where you can find further information on him – http://baxiabhishek.info/.
I have known Abhishek may be close to a year now. He from my perspective is a multi talented guy. He runs http://mstalk.in – one of the premiere podcasting site in India where he along with Manan tries to talk to varied personalities from Microsoft. He was also the editor for http://theactivegeek.com – a free technology magazine delivered right to your doorsteps through email.
Apart from this currently he is the owner and author of another wonderful site called I Love Windows Phone and the URL is http://ilovewindowsphone.in.
As the by line of the web site goes, Abhishek through this site is trying to bring all the news, apps, tips, how-to, development and forum for Windows Phone 7 related things. Believe me when i say this – i hadn’t paid much attention to this site previously. Once i saw his tweet about the giveaway, i just went through some of the articles and must say the best on Windows Phone 7 you can get from an Indian site. Well this is my perception. But the bottom line is, there’s a ton of content on the Windows Phone 7 available in this site. Do pay a visit and go through the articles. It may blow your mind out.
Now Windows Phone 7 is not the only platform he is covering. It seems in the good days of Windows Phone 6.5 also he used to have a site where he covered the old platform. With the new site for windows phone 7, he has migrated the content from 6.5 and at the moment he has passed the 150 post limit in his new site (65 posts on Win Mo 6.5 and 85 posts on new site). In order to celebrate the 150+ postings he is having a giveaway for all. What’s the booty you ask, check this out:
Windows 7 Ultimate: Steve Ballmer signed Commemorative Edition
Microsoft branded T-shirts
Random product merchandise – stationary stuff, pouches, laptop sleeves, desk enhancements, et al
