Adrian Peterson, NFL MVP, spotted playing with the Nokia Lumia 1020

Last year, Adrian Peterson was selected as the 2012 MVP for the NFL. While his team, the Minnesota Vikings, didn’t make it far in the playoffs, he still set some pretty awesome records for his rushing efforts.

Right now he’s getting ready for the 2013 season, but he’s doing it with flair. He’s doing it with a Nokia Lumia 1020.

The Minnesota Vikings Facebook page shared a photo of Adrian reading fan tweets before practice. He happened to be using a black Lumia 1020 with white camera grip to read those tweets. Which is pretty funny when you considered he’s done commercials for Verizon in the past. Either way, we hope Adrian enjoys his time with the Lumia 1020.

This is the second high profile sighting of the Lumia 1020 in a famous person's hands (plus one Yankee's fan). Earlier, we saw Linda Pizzuti, the wife of John W. Henry, rocking a Lumia 1020 and now we have Peterson on board too.

Alright, so who's going to the Super Bowl this year?

How about the Lumias :). The 1020 is so badass.

Agreed! BRONCOS!!!

rodneyej says:

What's this guy got that Rodney ain't got❔

paliotti says:

He's actually thinking to himself... "What the uh is that? Is that Halo?"

beej says:

Agreed. Hawks!

jsnod25 says:

Seahawks for sure #GOHAWKS vs the broncos... My dream for last year, only second to a harbaugh bowl, which happened, so this year its gotta be Hawks vs Broncos all the way.

coip says:

Seahawks are going nowhere now that the replacement refs are gone.

jsnod25 says:

That's the dumbest thing I've read all day, we lost 50% of our games under replacement refs... Lost 23% with the real ones...

coip says:

Should've lost one more.

jsnod25 says:

Which would have meant we would lose 75% of our games with replacement refs, further illustrating how dumb your comment was... Also that play was confirmed by NFL http://www.upi.com/Sports_News/2012/09/25/NFL-backs-replacement-refs-TD-...

coip says:

That's the point: the replacement refs gifted you a game you actually lost.

wookie301 says:

Greg Jennings is the new Ray Finkle

wookie301 says:

You might want to rub some ointment on that butthurt

JoeDizzle33 says:

I concur! Seahawks for the win.

TAM28301 says:

Agreed. GO HAWKS!
 

1ll1TERAT3 says:

GO HAWKS! Russel Wilson, Marshawn Lynch, and the Seattle D are gonna crush!

SEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAHAWWWWWWWWWWWWWKS!!!!

inertiaNokia says:

Nice catch Sam! Go broncos! :)

RayWall says:

And his jersey is sporting a Verizon logo! LOL

BK-one says:

Hilarious, didn't think anyone else caught that. He knows what's up.

TechFreak1 says:

He obviously couldn't wait and rushed to get the 1020 :P

MattAllison says:

I saw that too.  Shame the 1020 isn't sporting the logo....
The Death Star was great in Star Wars, but I don't want to use a the unnamed phone company that uses it as it's logo.

ajftl says:

He's like damn it. There is no instagram shit. I want my gs4 back.

Cellus13 says:

Unfortunately this was most likely the case...

LMAO! Probably true, sadly.

d4emend says:

Except that windows phone does not display app lists or home screen horizontally.

goldenpipes says:

It said he was reading tweets.

Also he was probably looking at pictures that team mates may have taken a lot of times these phones pass around locker rooms. At least they did in college locker rooms.

gcdc_lumia says:

wahahahahaha. so true.

brudolph1211 says:

Go Colts!
They should have used that 1020 to take his pic. That photo is horrid! 

glassadam says:

GO BEARS!!!!

Peterson's a beast, though. Also great that he's wearing the Verizon patch on his jersey in that pic.

RyanAMG says:

LOL I was going to say that.

rubenbest says:

Sadly not the eagles :/

Dadstar0410 says:

The Eagles better do well. I'm hoping for 8-8.

rth314 says:

Where did he get the white camera grip?  I can't find that dang thing anywhere???  Nokia really dropped the ball on accessories for the Lumia 1020.  They haven't even committed to having a white wireless charging sleeve.

coteganut says:

Microsoft stores have plenty of them. 

MS Stores have the white grip aplenty in stock. 

marantaz says:

Probably doing a Verizon commercial. As for the super bowl...don't laugh...Go Cardinals!
Oh and crush them Cowboys!!

procen says:

Go Cards! Go Palmer!

mase123987 says:

Real question is this: How many non-WP fans and tech people will know what phone it is or that it is a WP8 phone?

Sam Sabri says:

If you look at the comments on Facebook where this photo was posted a surprising number know. If they don't know, they're asking and others are responding. 

Dadstar0410 says:

I'm glad this is catching on!

Chemilinski says:

Certainly doesn't look like any other phone.

johaas says:

Lions vs Bills Superbowl, baby!
Yeah, I'll show myself the door...

Booston says:

SKOL Vikings!

Looking forward to seeing them in London. Skol Vikings

goldenpipes says:

Hells yeah SKOL!

Skol Vikings! A few of the Vikings fantasy team names im using this year:
-Rudolph the Red Zone Danger
-Baca to the Future
-The Blair Walsh Project
Can't wait for football!

I could kill for a cookie, sting ray a double side of scooby snack.....

ry6uy says:

An orange peanut, fo me? I accept you.

nizzon says:

LOL That's the first thing that popped up in my head. Can't get enough of that Bad Lip Reading.

IamDefiler says:

RAAAAAAAAIDERRRRRRRRSSSSS! (I can dream, can't I?)

berty6294 says:

Please ya dumb fools, Ravens are winning the Superbowl again!

jchapman01 says:

COWBOYS!! Orton will take us all the way, LOL!

rodneyej says:

Go Cowboy, Rangers, Mavs❗❕❗❕❗❕❗

Travis Fredbeard FTW!

btbam91 says:

My Ravens are super bowl champs and we're looking to repeat!!!

RISE UP!! FALCONS!!!

BK-one says:

Love to see stuff like that. Makes a proud 1020 owner and part of an exclusive club.

London Jr says:

Saints V Texans superbowl!!!

semerdar34 says:

SEAHAWKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alabama Crimson Tide, we could beat half the NFL teams out there I know. Roll Tide! #16 otw!

IMStrugglin says:

May be true. But there's a reason $EC players don't leave early for the NFL - they can't afford the pay cut.

Josh Harman says:

You should pay more attention, everybody leaves early.

Roll Tide! Can't wait till the season starts, and sure hope Johnny Goofball doesn't get suspended. Sept 14 is going to be a beat down either way. I created an app with the MS app studio beta for Alabama. Search for Roll Tide in the store to check it out. Its very basic, but I wanted to get my feet wet.

Will do, Roll Tide!

slap0rama says:

I dont think a bunch of 22 year olds can beat grown ass men in football lol the Jaguars will beat them by like 40 or 50

WinnyPhone says:

Just saw him today in Mankato!

rodneyej says:

We're up there⬆⬆⬆⬆

aienjell says:

Big Blue aka G-MEN again!!!!!

mrcrusha829 says:

^^^^.... THIS!!!!  Go BIG BLUE!!!

Lenn Liggins says:

Make him a spokesman now, before the NFL season starts.  It would be the smartest thing they could do.

sym1a1a says:

Steelers get their 7th Lombardi trophy!!!!

Meanwhile, I'm using a 1020 as well. Where is my spotlights?

winphoneng says:

check your reading lamp...

jmerrey says:

He tweeted from an iPhone about an hour ago

gevabar says:

He has money so he probably has iPhone Samsung 4 and 1020

bbennett40 says:

 "Hey, Adrian! Look at this picture of my cat. Now zoom in on his face." ::click:: "Thanks!!"

Rippin2 says:

Panthers baby

KeegdnaB42 says:

When bad spokespeople happen to good phones
Signed
A Packer Fan

WhyFiNYC says:

A) he's not a spokesperson for the phone, he's just using it. 
B) pretty sure that everyone on the Packers roster would give him nothing but huge respect - he did run over, through and past their defense to the tune of 500+ yards last year. 

BK-one says:

So we have a picture of Peterson (taken by an iPhone, a presume), using a 1020. Love it..

BK-one says:

Ditto, representin the south.

mma2885 says:

Nokia, of course...

Nazmi Lao says:

Sure makes taking pics at the game easier :) now we can see every player in detail. Hehehehe

weaksauce27 says:

Go Chargers? Lol

Sam Sabri says:

Typical Charger season: Slow start, season in peril, wake up, kick ass, somehow make the playoffs, fail in playoffs. Every. Single Time. Except the part where they make the playoffs last year. 

spectre51 says:

I'm hoping for a better season though with the Chargers never know what team will show up to play.

Spedez says:

Wired or wireless?

wsanchez78 says:

Broncos and 49ers

Hmm, the 1020 might be catching on quicker than people are anticipating. If football players are now being seen with them (let alone the reigning NFL MVP), it might cause a shift in consumer interest in the US, which would bode very well for Nokia and MS. Things are getting interesting.
Oh, and FALCONS RISE UP!

DurnDurnDurn says:

Is that supposed to be irony?  Him playing with a Nokia Lumia 1020 and on his jersey is a Verizon Wireless logo?  Oh Nokia why don't you send the great phones to the carrier that really cares and sells more Windows Phones.
 

ltjordan24 says:

49ers will win it all this year.

MSFTMatt says:

I love the Verizon Logo on his shirt yet he is clearly using an ATT device. Classic!. Maybe Verizon should hop on the WP train instead of bending over backwards for apple and making android worse than it already is.

micaels says:

That's good to hear, cheering for the seahawks but this is nice to see

mrcansik says:

Hail to the REDSKINS!!

ltjordan24 says:

Wouldn't it be cool if AP had a really early version of the 1028 running GDR3 on a quad-core processor, 1080p screen with expandable memory?

DaddyLikey says:

It's gonna be the Broncos vs. the Giants.
