    Default Indian website back-tracks after calling Nokia Lumia Windows Phone a noPhone

    An Indian site Moneylife.in reviewed the Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phhone purely on its specifications and passed a damning judgment calling it a noPhone.

    Unhappy comments in the posts prompted its author to check them out and then publicly expose the IP addresses of the commentors, only to find out that the comments were from (mostly) employess of Microsoft and Nokia. The author was accused of breaking his own site's privacy policy by posting the IP and email addresses of the commenters.

    The original posts have since then been removed.

    First reported on The Guardian.

    The episode must have got the website a lot of traffic .... but what a loss of credibility ...

    It is shameful for MS and nokia . I didn't thought that MS and Nokia will do something like this . So, is there any official response from these two companies regarding this incident ? And , I think , the author also must gone mad , breaking its own site rule ..

    This is the responsibility of Companies only. They should release any product after testing.
