Windows Phone 7 up for grabs from 'excited' 3

At least one user for Microsoft to claim...

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Want a Windows Phone 7? OK, how about if it was free? Thought you might change your mind. Well, network 3 is offering one to the first lucky punter it draws out of its virtual hat.

It's not limiting the prize draw to its customers, but anyone currently with O2, Orange, T-Mobile or Vodafone is likely to receive suggestions that they shift to 3 when the network mails out the handset availability information you're actually signing up to receive when you enter the draw.

3 blogger Sylvia Chind gushes that the Windows 7 Phone is "massively exciting" and that 3 is "really excited about this one". In case you're still not sure how keen the company is on the Microsoft offering, Sylvia adds: "Excited? We are."

As we reported yesterday, 3 will be joined by all the other UK networks when Windows Phone 7 launches over here, probably next month.

More unadulterated enthusiasm here. ®
