    I have noticed several tv shoes lately featuring characters using windows phones. Seems Microsoft is doing a lot to make the phone visible. The two shows I have noticed it on most are Hawaii 5-0 and Dallas. Did anyone watch the last episode of Dallas? What model phone was John Ross using??

    what do people think, is this helping promote the platform?

    lol, my parents love Dallas (they've been watching it since the original run), but I've never gotten into it. I noticed that they all use Lumias and Surfaces on Parks and Recreation, and all of the doctors on Grey's Anatomy use Surfaces as well. I can't imagine that these product placements would make someone say "OMG I NEED THAT DEVICE," but it could get someone curious enough to check it out, and maybe lead to a conversion somewhere down the road.

    On The Following, I have seen the use of Surfaces and I believe Lumias.

    I recently saw a car insurance commercial where the mother was taking pictures of her car damage with an Android phone and her son was using a Lumia.

    John Ross is using a 925 and Rebecca is using a 1020. She was also using a Surface in this week's episode.

    I do think it's helping the platform, just getting it some visual recognition instead of a "what's that?" I think is helpful. I live in iPhone territory, I' I've seen it on several shows but Dallas and Scandal come to mind the most.

    Mindy Project uses Lumias pretty much exclusively. Don't ask how I know....
    Abroad, there is a popular sitcom in Russia called Kitchen, that also uses a lot of Lumias

    I don't believe for a minute that Olivia Pope would use a Windows Phone! Having just discarded mine and gone back to IPhone, I don't think Windows has a chance of denting the Apple market. While Windows is better than some, it's no IPhone.

    Sure its nice to see them on shows, but its way too subtle & only WP users actually seem to notice them.

    I finally watched "Man of Steel" (I know, so late right) and Lois Lane uses a Lumia. Kinda looks like the 920.

    Yellow 1020 on Vampire Diaries, few shows in the UK like Eastenders etc. Hollyoaks is littered with them as I'm sure it's sponsored by Nokia (or erm was)

    Are all the WPs in movies Nokia? I remember watching a movie where the actress' cell phone rang. It was in the days before smartphones, and I clearly remember the famous Nokia ringtone. I wonder if Nokia had, or has, some kind of deal with the studios.

    Nokia did make a tonne of phones before the advent of smartphones :p i.e. the indestructible 3310, another is the 7110 (I think - correct me if I'm wrong) that was predominately used in movie the "Matrix".
