Scott Adams is no journalist, though. He created the extremely popular Dilbert comic strip, and also has a very popular blog. On this blog, he often complained about smartphones (the iphone dropped his calls, and his android battery lasted a couple hours).

Only then did MS make its offer. It certainly helps to spread the word about their product, and I thought it was quite effective (and a nice change for MS). And knowing Scott Adams, they certainly opened themselves to a lot of criticism - he's often merciless on his ad hoc reviews.
