Microsoft synergy in action: Skype advertising the HTC Radar

Windows Phone advertisements are popping up all over the place lately. Check out the above ad for the HTC Radar which one of our readers spotted while using Skype.

Seeing as how Skype calling and videoconferencing is coming to Windows Phone later this year and how Microsoft, you know, owns the company, it’s a great example of advertising synergy. If this sort of thing keeps up, Windows Phone may soon achieve brand awareness among the common man - or at least collage artists.

Thanks Zanch for the tip!

Just need to add Skype and a video calling option to contacts for complete awesomeness!

I bet they'll do just that, though it might not happen till the next major Windows Phone update.
