Guy proposes his girlfriend by creating a Windows Phone word game, rewarded with flawless victory

You don’t see this every day, do you? A guy proposes his girlfriend using a self made Wordament inspired game which eventually results in an emphatic yes from the girlfriend. Yes that happened. Well played, good sir!

Wordament, for those of you who don’t know Wordament is a real time competitive word game for Windows Phone.

Here’s the mail from the couple sent to Wordament developers (both of them being huge fans of the game):

“Myself and my girlfriend are big fans of Wordament and often play it together. I recently decided that it was time to ask her to marry me and I wanted a fun and original way of doing it. I thought about how cool it would be to have a custom game of Wordament where some of the words were “will”, “you”, “marry” and “me”.

As a WP7 dev I decided to create a private, one-off version of Wordament just for us, for that night.

I just wanted to thank you guys for a great game and being the inspiration for my marriage proposal.”

The guy is a Windows Phone developer and he showed his piece of work in a video embedded below:

Congratulations to the soon-to-be wed couple and massive congratulations to developers at Wordament. From a developer’s perspective, this is one of the best thing that can happen to you.

Lumia 910 available for pre-order?

While Eldar’s recent tweet of the Nokia Lumia 910 is taken with a heavy grain of salt, it would appear that the tweet gains further credibility., a dutch retailer has outed the Nokia Lumia 910 with a 12 mp camera sensor. In itself the phone looks a whole lot like the Nokia Lumia 900 with a massive 4.3 inch screen with clear black amoled display with front facing camera and 16 gb onboard storage running Windows Phone Mango. Unfortunately, the retailer lacks any information that indicates the date of availability. Still, we like this rumor gaining lots of traction with a hopeful release date looming.

Here is the complete spec. sheet translated in English:
