Smoked by Windows Phone

Sahas Katta, the man who recently won the “Smoked By Windows Phone” challenge with his Galaxy Nexus has decided to auction off his winnings for charity. Katta walked away with a new $1,000 Hunger Games edition HP laptop and a $899 Lumia 800 bundle after his phone was able to load the weather in two cities faster than a Microsoft employee’s Windows Phone.

However, winning the challenge wasn’t exactly a walk in the park. The Microsoft employee first said Katta lost “just because,” but another Microsoft employee stepped in after Katta blogged on the matter and offered an apology as well as the two aforementioned prizes.

The laptop and Lumia 800 bundle will be auctioned off on eBay and the winnings will go to a charity that is currently being voted upon by the reddit community.
