WSJ poll asked ‘Who makes best mobile OS?’ somehow Microsoft took the lead

SHARE

The Wall Street Journal have created a poll asking readers “Who makes the best mobile operating system?” The question has received some coverage, and its interesting that Microsoft went from 3.3% to over 46% over the weekend alone. Over 27,000 readers have voted, meaning some how Microsoft got overly famous by 11,000+ votes being cast in their favor in as little as two days. That seams a little suspicious to me.

Phandroid points out: “Either there are a lot of old folks who forgot their spectacles and overlooked the word “mobile”, someone is voting with proxies to make the poll seem like a complete farce, or WSJ readers are just plain dumb.”

Who knows what really happened? I’m not buying this poll at all.

Updated 26/10/2010: Now it looks like Android is in the lead with over 1,000,000 votes.  I guess Google showed Microsoft who has more proxies.
