Microsoft Taiwan launches interactive Metro site for Mango contest

Yesterday we reported that Microsoft Taiwan may be getting ready to release Windows Phone Mango--either an update or new devices. Instead, it turns out to be a promotion...a pretty cool promotion at that. The site you see above is a bunch of Tiles with photos from Facebook users who've uploaded their pics to the site. In turn, they're entered in a contest to win a Mango phone, which we have to admit is pretty clever. It joins the unique KDDI/Facebook People Hub generator site we saw earlier.

Even more clever is how on the site you can grab the screen and scroll around. We even like how the tiles switch with sideways animation---which raises the question, could Microsoft add sideways tile animation to display even more info?

Take a look at the site: (opens in new tab)
