Captured: Liverpool FC owner John W. Henry's wife, Linda Pizzuti, with her Lumia 1020

As the Nokia Lumia 1020 begins its global launch in the coming weeks, one item we hope to report on are frequent sightings of the device in people’s hands. Even more, we want to see images captured with its massive 41 MP camera used in media and elsewhere, as that is what will eventually persuade the public that this phone is different.

One of the first high profile sightings of Nokia’s new camera flagship was this weekend when Liverpool FC visited Oslo, Norway. The game was shown on national television (TV2) with a potentially large audience tuning in for the big match. Caught on two separate occasions by the network was Linda Pizzuti, the wife of John W. Henry (Wikipedia) who owns Liverpool Football Club. She evidently picked up a yellow AT&T Lumia 1020 recently and brought it over to save the memories. 

Good color choice, Ms. Pizzuti. We approve.

However, going through her Twitter feed we have to wonder if she’s really taking photos with it or if she forgot to take off the lens sticker, because her photos aren’t exactly endorsements of the Lumia 1020. But hey, it’s a start.

In a related story, the Lumia 1020 was also spotted at a recent Yankees / White Sox game. Evidently a fan was snapping a photo of Mariano Rivera and the moment was caught on TV.

Yankees fan snapping what is sure to be an excellent photo

With its iconic Cyclops camera housing, the Nokia Lumia 1020 stands to physically represent a new age in mobile photography and it should be easy to spot in the wild. That’s good for Windows Phone as no one will confuse it with those other guys.

Have you seen the Nokia Lumia 1020 in the wild? Caught on TV? Let us know in comments.

Thanks, Jon Ivar N. and Steven B., for the tips and images!

Amen that man!

Andresuxx says:

If I am gorgeous and will go to a soccer play can I be given a Lumia 1020 and advertise for Nokia and WP? :D

Huime says:

first thing first, you must also be someone's trophy wife.

Andresuxx says:

Ok, I'll do it, easy!

Sam Sabri says:

Even though her husband doesn't actually play football, would you dudes in the UK still call her a wag?

Nope she's not really a wag. Just someone very rich haha

chris879 says:

No, Linda's got a gorgeous personality you have to be self centered to be a wag, also she looks like a natural beauty and not made in a doll factory.

neo158 says:

^^That I agree with, and that is an excellent choice of phone as well.

luimende says:

She's a trophy for sure.

chezm says:

looks pretty smokin

Racxie says:

What is a wag?

blnwp says:

No idea. Wife and girlfriend?

British people, what does Wag mean?

pradf1 says:

Wives And Girlfriends

DaveGx says:

I don't know what a wag is, but this woman is clearly a gold digger. Like many others, she will be with anyone, no matter age/looks if it helps fulfill her monetary lifestyle needs

Dude u don't even know her..

erzhik says:

Next up...POTUS.

d4emend says:

But the pentagon signed off on Blackberry?

Xaphoon148 says:

With sugar and whipped cream ;)

Anidh Singh says:

I was shocked to see my fav club here but cool YNWA

d4emend says:

In The Wolverine, the antagonist lady and the 2 protagonist ladies have Lumia 920.

BK-one says:

Yep. Saw it. Great promotion. Royal pains on USA network rocks a Nokia as well.

Josh Harman says:

Stephen King's 'Under the Dome' series must have an exclusive with Microsoft, every laptop, tablet and phone have been Windows.

juniwalk says:

I saw black Lumia 900 in Continuum TV show.

No one promotes Microsoft like Hawaii Five 0

paliotti says:

Have you watched Arrow??? They have Lumias and Surfaces!

Icthiodrak says:

I was really surprised last weekend when I went to the Denver Natural History museum and I wasn't the only one there with a 1020.  I didn't expect to see other people out and about so soon after launch.  I think that is a promising sign.

jmerrey says:

"still having trouble uploading"  

Nik Rolls says:

It's not that hard ...

remmy88 says:

Oh but it is....

Nik Rolls says:

Share > Twitter > Upload

raul_junior says:

Ya someone help her! Lol

Antistatic says:

Nokia is going to rule the mobile World again, and 1020 is the start...

Graven Pshya says:

You mean 2013? Jk :P

blackhawk556 says:

She's going out with the old guy? She seems to have a pretty good body in those shots. :-P Oh yeah, the phone is good. :)

I've heard having roughly a billion dollars is good for picking up the pretty ladies. 

ltyarbro42 says:

^ This this this

blackhawk556 says:

That's how Anna Nicole got money as well. Damn these old guys! :-P

RyanAMG says:

So that's the trick. I've had it all wrong and trying by my good looks alone ;)

Rockartisten says:

What are we gonna do when we get old? We've got to start making some money Ryan, our youth wont last.

Rockartisten says:

Since I have no big ambitions, that seems like the way to go:)

mayne222 says:

No, he means dollars.  John W. Henry is an American, who owns the Boston Red Sox Baseball team and a co-owner of a NASCAR team, and recently the purchase of the Boston Globe Newspaper.

BK-one says:

I see one in the hands of ME every day. Love it..

Nik Rolls says:

Me too.

Oh, you mean the phone.


clappenings says:

You know he's the Red Sox owner also :)

TonyDedrick says:

And now the Boston Globe as well

Fishhouse says:

Yeah I thought it was odd neither of those things were mentioned since it is what Henry is known for.

And he should get a RED Lumia 1020 !!

jlynnm350z says:

Ok, yeah, she's not with him for the money. It's blatantly obvious. I guess I wouldn't care either if i was that old and that rich.

weaksauce27 says:

So is Jessica Alba going to upgrade her 920?!

blackhawk556 says:

They better give her one. Paparazzi are always taking her pic. Great exposure.

Martsicky says:

Ah... Those hooker$.... Benjamin Franklin's whisper coming from his wallet makes her so neutral, she forgets that he is so old.. shhh :-)

dreonedon says:

Fuck Liverpool Chelsea fc is the team blue nation

Dazzi says:

Don't be silly, Chelsea has no history lol -- You'll never walk alone!!

dreonedon says:

Chelsea fc 13 trophies in the last 10 years Liverpool has history but no future lol

pradf1 says:

lol .. keep sniffing the glue ..
Feeling butthurt after the Madrid  bumming ??

dreonedon says:

Not at all that was pre season game didn't mean anything that was not Chelsea starting team no Mata no luiz lampard first 45 in pre season calm down.

Dazzi says:

^^ Oh dear, ha ha ha

vinchjkt says:

Liverpool FC have millions of fans in south east asia.
If only Nokia would support Liverpool, ManU, Chelsea, etc. with lumia 1020, may be very helpful for sales in south east asia (Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia).

Prensescim says:

How sweet it is!

jabtano says:

Woot the owner team the Boston Red Sox.....wise man indeed

Boston RED Socks owner himself?
Give him a RED Lumia 1020 !!

NIST says:

Picked up two Nokia Lumia 1020 yesterday for me and my wife. Holy crap. Awesome phone. My yellow one is can't miss.

ricardios says:

It's refreshing to see others with a WP. I see so many iPhones at the airport

useme2useyou says:

That's my football team. No wonder they're with the best phone in the business. Lets hope the team plays well next season... Lol

Dazzi says:

Same here mate -- fingers crossed.

locokip says:

As an Everton fan, my feelings on Mrs. Henry having a 1020 are mixed. Good to see the positive press though!

Dazzi says:

Oh dear lol

Matt Mizenko says:

Superb for her, indeed. Now GIVE US SUAREZ!

Dazzi says:

Lol, fingers crossed he goes, as he has no respect for his team or other players for that matter -- no player has the right to act like they are bigger, than any football club they choose to play for!

m4tthall says:

I would rather they didn't let him come to us (Arsenal)

Dazzi says:

My brothers an Arsenal fan, and he thinks the same mate -- the guy doesn't deserve to play in England, collecting top wages!

Linda Pizzuti I want :P her name sounds like pizza :P

BK-one says:

Speaking of 1020, just got my wireless charging case in the mail
love it.

Just saw a black Lumia phone on an episode of the Netflix series 'Orange is the new black'. Bravo. Good show BTW

Nice, now just launch the Phablet version for T-Mobile and I'm in.

A beautiful woman holding a beautiful phone. NOKIA couldn't hope for a better add

Well she was a spokesmodel/person for the Nokia C3...maybe we can get her upgraded to a 1020 or 920 in time for the next World Cup or whatever soccer championship is up next...

Nik Rolls says:

That was the Nokia E71 (and previously the E70). Or did they switch her to the C3 after?

RolexDPracer says:

Don't you mean Boston Red Sox owner.... ;)

jabtano says:

He owns them as well he also just bought the Boston Globe though i have no idea why.

mics_kiss18 says:

checked the photos via twitter..not good! something is blocking...must have forgotten to remove stickers or something!!!we have to confirm. this is bad!!

ruddevil says:

Liverpool can't seem to get things right nowadays. Even the owner's wife got it wrong!

dosto says:

Wife? Granddaughter? So easy to get them confused these days.

acl14 says:

Someone tweet her about the sticker !!

Nik Rolls says:

Hard to tell what she's doing to those photos on her Twitter feed. Probably some weird filter app (because the EXIF data is stripped) and one she doesn't know how no use (hence her confusion on uploading photos, not realizing that functionality is built in).

It's "uploaded via iPhone" hellooooo she has "trouble uploading (via the Nokia)"

Nik Rolls says:

Thanks for speaking to me like I'm an idiot, however none of the photos under discussion on her timeline have "uploaded via iPhone" on them.

ivelo says:

I apologize, try Twitter app like "Carbon", it will show the "Upload via" tag.

Nik Rolls says:

Sorry for reacting harshly. And thanks, I didn't realise via tags had gone on the site altogether.

WPUser111 says:

She is hot...

lerimer says:

funny how they dont use the camera grip for these kind of events. I would of used mines. They seem to not have the wireless charger either....

Hai Dang Le says:

YNWA - Love Lumia and Liverpool

Martinio32 says:

I have Lumia 800, Lumia 920 next Lumia 1020 but for me always the best phone will be Nokia 900. I wish continue with this model but ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI he don't want this.

Bob101910 says:

I forgot to take the sticker off my 900 for several months. Now that it's gone, pictures look so much better.

WP8Expert says:

Am I the only one who finds it fun that the editors of wpcentral would comment on other editor's articles?

pikkuhukka says:

raycpl says:

Nokia walk thru the storm... YNWA

how1ard says:
