Microsoft putting Windows Phone 7 on promotional France

Well, who says Microsoft isn't trying? Between the ads, TV show placements, developer out reach and evidently now putting the phone "on tour", Microsoft at least seems to be trying to get the word out.

From March 16th to May 7th, they'll be going around France giving demos of the phone and even raffling off an HD7 to a few lucky peeps. We suppose it's a good idea that can't hurt, but lets see if it drums up sales.
