Friggin’ April Fools day. If your job at all focuses around the news, you might as well throw the ol’ Internet box out the window and call it a snow day. For every good story floating around out there, there’s a dozen pranks trying to sneak onto your front page. Take the video above, for example, supposedly showing a Nokia N8 running Windows Phone 7. A handful of sites posted it throughout the morning, only to actually watch the video, realize what day it was, and take it down within about 20 minutes.
Why it’s probably shenanigans*:
Aw, well. It shouldn’t be too much longer before we see actual footage of WP7 running on Nokia hardware, but this probably isn’t it. In the meantime, go check out our big list of April Fool’s Day 2011 pranks.
* If all else fails, I love April Fools day simply because it gives me reason to use the word “Shenanigans”
