    Microsoft holds funeral for iPhone and Blackberry in celebration of Windows Phone 7

    By Vlad Savov



    The iPhone's dead, long live the Windows Phone. That must be the genius proclamation that incited Microsoft to celebrate Windows Phone 7 reaching RTM status with the incomprehensible procession you see above. An elaborate parade, replete with hearses and black capes, was organized last week to denote the passing of the BlackBerry and iPhone into the land of unwanted gadgets. We'd say this is done in poor taste, but we don't enjoy stating the obvious. We will, however, enjoy the fallout from this poorly judged stunt. See our favorite image after the break and lots more at the source.

    Update: Apparently the team also engaged in a Thriller dance. Words are failing us, so just hop on past the break and mash play.

    Yes it appears (according to the Microsoft team) that the Droid will live to see another day.

    Judging by the stills and description, you gotta ask yourself --- would you pay big money to an advertising exec or firm if this was the end result as a marketing stunt? I don't think so...
