Smoked by Windows Phone Challenge Extended Until April 5th

The Smoked by Windows Phone challenge was set to end on the 29th, but Microsoft has decided to extend the challenge until April 5th, despite the problems plaguing the challenge. The rules have changed a bit, but I think this is more of a stipulation of limiting the amount of phones given out to losers than trying to stop people from trying for the big prize.

Currently, only the first 100 challenges per day until April 5th will have a shot at a new replacement phone. The next 500 people after that will be offered a $25 gift card without needing to trade in their old smartphone. Anyone can take the challenge and try for the $1,000 grand prize, which is a special edition Hunger Games laptop.
