The One Who Smoked Windows Phone Auctions Prizes for Charity
It’s fair to assume that you’ve read at least one of yesterday’s reports concerning Sahas Katta and how he managed to smoke Windows Phone with a couple of weather widgets on his Android-powered phone.
After a little bit of back and forth, Microsoft’s Ben Rudolf stepped in to let Sahas Katta know that he’s got “a laptop & phone (& apology) for” him. Katta dropped by the Santa Clara Microsoft Store top pick up the prize — a $1,049 Hunger Games Special Edition HP Folio 13 and a $899 Nokia Lumia 800 Bundle — and is now auctioning it on eBay. “I will ship the highest bidder of each listing the respective device and donate 100% of the proceeds to a charity of with the help of Reddit’s choosing”, he said, after adding that he is “rather happy” with his smartphone. Now this is a happy ending!
