    Since it is a static image, I'm assuming it is just a screenshot. Perhaps only the iOS version of that notification was completed. Though that wouldn't explain why they put it on a Windows Device, but nice to see.

    This is so weird. It don't make any sense, wouldn't it of been easier for them to just use and iPhone running iOS or a lumia running WP8. However at least they're advertising WP and rather iOS than android.

    Can someone make a GIF of iOS popping up on the screen and then the guy's reaction when he picks up his phone?

    I can't stop laughing. It's like he is disappointed/confused as to why iOS is on his beautiful Lumia. LOL

    Maybe the Government alert is to an iOS virus that affects smartphones.... That's why they are heading to shelter... It has nothing to do with the weather... Who knew that all iPhones are just infected and were realy meant to run a different OS???

    They probably did it because they couldn't get WP to actually notify anyone of anything. :}

    Given the number of Nokia devices in videos these days (TV/movies etc.) I'd say that somewhere in media circles is a post like "Use a Nokia in your video and get $10,000" or something.

    And even the government film department is getting in on this action.

    Either that or film directors are all thinking Nokias are the new cool thing. Which I'd totally support and much prefer.

    Too bad they obviously dont feel the same about WP. So in the end it does no good.

    They liked the Nokia hardware but extreme weather alerts on WP is nothing more than a tiny little toast notification. On IOS its a giant popup. That's why they used IOS, cause its more obvious to the viewer that the promo is for the alert service.

    What? What hurts the most is how much people is just overreacting over nothing.
