hackslurp-"See the evil Balmer above ? Ya that is what Microsoft is turning into, E-V-I-L !!

If you can't beat them, then pay someone to help you cheat... -yeah sounds like just another day at Microsoft.

Can't really see how this is cheating, perhaps you've just never had the pleasure of working in a retail setting. Anyhow, if you hadn't noticed WP7 has very little presence in stores and just mind share in general this is just about incentivizing AT&T employee's to plug something.

Well, the product apparently can't sell itself, so in order to make it sell, Microsoft hands out bribes. How is this not cheating? It may be allowed but it's still cheating. Microsoft always does something like that. They release mediocre products and just buy out the competition or circumvent a direct confrontation, like using bribery to "make" people buy their crap.

LOL @ Balmer pic. However he is walking cancer for MS. The guy is extremely awkward to see and listen too during there conferences. Don't expect MS to turn things around while he's still there.

Windows phone is going to need all the help they can get . No one wants one that I know well besides one person.

Well for starters, maybe......just maybe windows phone would've gotten some footing had they decided to update/support the phones that were capable of running WP7 prior to its release *cough* HD2 *cough*. Many owners of that phone gave MS the big FU by running the android OS.
