Videos: Microsoft’s “Meet Your Match” Windows Phone Series

With Windows Phone 7, Microsoft had their infamous Smoked by Windows Phone series of videos on YouTube, but with Windows Phone 8, it appears the company has chosen to go in another direction, with a new “Meet Your Match” series starring Microsoft evangelist Ben Rudolph as he goes around America putting his Windows Phones up against Android and iPhones.

That’s why I’m excited about the launch of Meet Your Match. It’s a different take on our Smoked challenges, focusing not just on why Windows Phone is faster, but also on why it’s better, easier, more useful, and more fun. The soul of Smoked – a side-by-side comparison of us vs. the other guys – hasn’t changed, but now it’s about why our phones and features are a better match for you, no matter who you are or what you’re into.

Check out the video series right below:
