Microsoft holds iPhone funeral procession to celebrate upcoming Windows Phone 7 release (w/ video)

“Microsoft workers celebrated the release to manufacturing of Windows Phone 7 last week by parading through their Redmond campus with iPhone and BlackBerry hearses,” Tom Warren reports for Neowin.

“Employees dressed up in fancy dress and also modified cars to include Windows Phone branding,” Warren reports. “Aside from the crazy outfits the workers made fake hearses for giant BlackBerry and iPhone devices. Employees cheekily claimed they had buried the competition with Windows Phone 7.”

Warren reports, “Windows Phone 7 is expected to be available in late October for those in Europe and November for those in the US.”

MacDailyNews Take: Unmitigated hubris from the perennially outclassed and hopelessly mismanaged. Par for the course.

  1. If it is the iPhone’s funeral, why is the Windows logo black? Surely not out of respect for Apple, when it should be the occasion for “dancing with a red dress on your grave” by Redmond? It looks more like the Windows desktop color just before it shuts down. They cannot even get making fun right.

  2. Wow such big budgets theses days in Redmond the recession must be hitting them hard, this looks like a primary school fancy dress part with mommy and daddy mocking up the uniforms over night, and the intellectual impact is about as telling.
