New Nokia video promotes the Lumia 930 and the One Windows Experience

Microsoft has posted a new promotional video for their Nokia Lumia 930, and in this beautifully shot ad they promote the integration between Windows Phones, Windows tablets and Windows PCs. 

The ad is however rather subtle, and I wonder if a few videos which explain the features such as synchronizing tabs and universal apps and so forth may not be necessary to educate the public.

What do our readers think? Let us know below.


Nokia Lumia 1020 makes a random appearance in Irish butter ad

We are sure Nokia often pays for product placement in music videos and movies, but for some reason we think the Nokia Lumia 1020 showing up in the Irish butter ad was a freebie.

It is likely the Nokia Lumia 1020 was included for its rather visible and iconic camera hump – the exact reason why Nokia went for that design.

We hope the handset continues to gain recognition as the one real camera phone in a sea of also-rans.

Thanks Timmy for the tip.

GEICO shows a Windows Phone app in their ad when none exists


We are not sure if the new GEICO ad is hinting at a coming Windows Phone app with its “simulated screen” or if the US insurance company is taking a dig at Windows Phone users, but what is pretty clear is that in one of the company’s latest ads the pig is using a Windows Phone to conduct its business, when none exists.

Which do our readers think it is? Watch the video after the break and let us know below.

Nokia takes a dig at Samsung with “most megapixels you can fit into a pair of skinny jeans” ad


MyNokiaBlog spotted the above billboard for the Nokia Lumia 1020 on Lombard Drive in California, touting the Nokia Lumia 1020 with the slogan:

“The most megapixels you can fit into a pair of skinny jeans.”

The ad is a subtle dig at Samsung with their ridiculous Galaxy S4 Zoom camera-focussed phone, and also of course positions the camera as suitable for the skinny jeans generation.

I think the ad would have had a bit more impact if it featured the phone slipped into the back pocket of a pair of comely skinny jeans however.  Do our readers agree? Let us know below.
