Marketing Windows Phone 7: Microsoft Says Message More Important Than Money

Microsoft is pulling out all the stops with Windows Phone 7 in an effort to get the right message across to both consumers and developers and get them on board. It is reported that Microsft will spend close to a billion dollars to do just that. So far from what has been shown I'd like to think that it's worth it but only time will tell the story.

Microsoft tries to target the right people with the right message with the Windows Phone 7 campaign.
