While the much awaited Windows Phone OS is coming out in September, two high school students from Las Vegas have already grabbed handsets from Microsoft. Both these kids (Christian Hood, 17, and Eric Lo, 16) are winners for the Windows Phone “Rockstar” contest, who won the prize for creating a game called “Droid Assault” a 2D XNA Framework based game for Windows Phone 7. Apart from the Windows Phone 7 handsets, they also won a free trip to Poland for the Awards Ceremony and a fat check from Microsoft. Christian and Eric are high school students at the Advanced Technologies Academy in Las Vegas, Nevada and entered the contest through a team named Beastware.
