At TechEd Australia this week, Microsoft will be giving out 250 blocks of chocolate, with Windows Phone 7 branded labels. Hidden inside 5 of these bars is a Golden Ticket, which will let you go on a magical tour of the Microsoft factory, where you will wonders, be tempted by Steve Jobs, and possibly inherit the entire business! Well, maybe not. Instead, each Golden Ticket scores you a free Windows Mobile 6.5 device on that day, and then a Windows Phone 7 device when the OS launches in October.
If you manage to score one of the chocolate bars, that’s a 2% chance of winning, hardly impossible odds. Free chocolate with the chance of free phones? I’m down.
