Microsoft tore a page out of Google and Apple's books, giving every employee a Windows 7 mobile phone. Reports suggest the official count at around 87,000 people worldwide. The announcement was made at the Microsoft Global Exchange (MGX) conference in Atlanta. And if the news, tweeted on twitter by employees, sounds familiar, it should. Last December a Google employee started a Twitter firestorm after tweeting that every Google employee would receive a Nexus One. Apple also gave employees an iPhone.
