    Watched terminator last night and I'm pretty sure most of the phones used as part of SkyNet were Lumias.

    Anyone else notice? Or am I wrong?

    I guess product placement isn't uncommon.

    I was blowing through Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. recently and I noticed a bunch of MS things. Surface Pro's and Pro 3's were common and I think I've seen more than a couple Lumia's in the hands of extras. (a red 920 seen videotaping, what I think was an Icon in the hands of Reina...)

    Yes all the smartphones were 1520s as far as I saw. Tablets were windows ones (not sure which, don't think Surface though) and there was a Dell laptop as somepoint.
    Although technically they aren't Skynet yet, but due to be upgraded once the countdown hits 0.

    I must say I kept comparing Skynet (connecting every devices) with Windows 10 (a single OS for all our devices...) ;)

    In the remake of Hawaii Five-0, they have used Lumia 920s since the show debuted, and Lumia icon (or 930, its hard to tell) more recently

    Windows 10 will have a liquid aluminum app that allows your phone to take on the shape of Gabriel Aul and request mobile os updates.

    I know, but this is the first A-list movie I've seen WP in, normally it's Apple or Samsung...

    I had exactly the same thought and I note that Microsoft did not get credit for product placement and the film was careful to not show the iconic Windows 8 start screen. Personally I think someone writing the script wanted to associate Skynet with Windows 10 without actually invoking the wrath of Microsoft.

    I explicitly waited and watched all the credits to see if Microsoft paid for promotional consideration, which they were not credited for. I did not think they would given a hint of association between Windows 10 and Skynet, a hint us Windows Phone people are likely the only ones to pick up on.

    I watched it last night too and I also noticed all of the Lumias.
    I suppose its good to know that Cyberdyne Systems were nice enough to make the Genisys app available to Windows Phone.
    Typical, we get that but still no Snapchat.

    Very happy to see a variety of Lumia devices featuring in closeup shots in the new Terminator film! I wasn't able to make out all the models (I'm sure someone else can) but I think I saw a 1020 in yellow and maybe a 640, tricky to say though. I was also very happy to see a Windows 10 advert (the one with the babies) before the film showing, seems like good MS marketing to me. I'm in the UK in case anyone is interested!

    I was just about to post this. I saw Mission Impossible Rogue Nation last night myself and noticed the Microsoft Surface tablets being used in a couple different scenes. They showed nice close ups of the Surface tablets with the Windows button on the side clear as day. Also a couple different Lumia phones as well.

    The previous MI movie (Ghost Protocol) had iPads being used...

    And in Terminator Genesis... Yes, I also thought "Wow... Windows 10 is Skynet!"
