    I've been seeing more ads recently where a windows phone is used. These are not phone ads, but mainly ads for services that are also available on WP and uses the phone, sometimes alongside other devices, to show this.

    For instance, NatWest's 'Pay Your Contacts' ad - Main character uses Lumia 900 to pay people with WP7 and Android devices


    Autotrader - Guy uses a Lumia 900 to sell car, with buyer searching on Android tablet


    Not sure if the manufactures pay for their device to be features or if it's the advertising company trying to genuinely show some of the devices their service is available on. Either way it's good to see WP in more mainstream ads possibly attracting a wider audience, don't you think?

    Has anyone seen any other ads like this?

    Pretty sure Wendy's has one too. I do not think Nokia is paying for their device to be used in this one (I HOPE)...I mean, it is just black and nearly impossible to tell except for the placement of the flash.

    Yeah, if Nokia paid them to do this they would have given them a flashier coloured device.

    The Spanish language ad was alot more brief than that and it showed at least the windows key. Good to see WP alot more prominent now. It's no wonder we're in 3rd place.

    The typical one on American TV isn't that long either...that was an extended / "outtake" version made for YouTube. I had the same "haha!! but seriously, they are crazy, get them help" reaction.

    You really think ANYONE knows those are Windows Phones besides us [s]insane[/s] dedicated followers?

    If anyone from UK watches 'Hollyoaks' then majority of the cast use Lumia devices with various models. There are also posters placed in scenes such as bus stops etc.

    Brazilian sitcoms are also showing off the Lumias.

    take a look, it is portuguese, but pictures tell all!!!
    Pictures do translate easily, haha.

    See, and those are YELLOW...I could certainly understand Nokia chipping in to sponsor those placements! They stand out and are the signature color, the black ones in the commercials just blend in.

    It's a 920 in the AutoTrader one. 0:08 shows the Windows Phone 8 home button.

    Acronym appears to be a Lumia shop



    And I doubt they're getting paid for it
