Nokia Lumia Windows Phone also spotted on The Neighbors

Lumia the Neighbors

"What?! How do I use this alien technology?!"

The Nokia Lumia Windows Phones seem to be making the cameo rounds these days.  Earlier what appears to be a Lumia 800 showed up on the set of the upcoming movie "The Wolverine" and now a Nokia Lumia (we believe it's a 900 in costume) has been spotted in the U.S. television show, The Neighbors. What's great about the above capture is facial expressions and the ability to add an alien-related caption to bring it in line with the storyline from the show.

We've previously looked at Windows Phones being featured in a media, particularly the music video for Fun. - We Are Young, which we to this day still receive tips on. We're going to need OEMs and Microsoft to go out in a full scale attack with product placement when Windows Phone 8 launches.

The advertisements, not only for Windows 8 and Microsoft's Surface, but Windows Phone will be on the big screens, where couch potatoes will be able to enjoy the sight of new Lumias or HTC hardware. Who knows, Samsung might even ... actually, it was wishful thinking, I know.

Thanks, Steve, for sending in the tip!

That's a pretty ugly cover.

ScarletStar says:

It's this case, or one of its many collor variations and combinations:
And yeah, it's ugly, not to mention it's a silicone case *shivers*

It has also been spotted in the show NCIS: Los Angeles. Here is a link to a thread I started with a pic and some other pics.
Nice to see WP getting some exposure like that. It is almost always Apple products.

I thought I saw Danny chuck one into the Pacific Ocean on Hawaii Five-O the other night, too.

tyrok says:

No mention of the Lumia seen on Monday's Hawaii Five-0?

Residing says:

^^This.  Actually, the Lumia 900 has been in the last two episodes of Hawaii Five O :)

beefydragon says:

Yup!!! Hawaii Five-O!!!

dermotf says:

They have used Windows phones in Hawaii Five O for a long time.

Yup, Jack Lord used to sport a cyan one way back when. I think it was the Lumia 100. ;-P

SPIDER.7 says:

I promise u in next post we'll see lumia in the hands of resident Evil zombies ! ;-)

wpeight says:

This is cool hope more and more tv shows will show more windows phone. I guess they love the awesome look of the front screen compare to iphone or android ugly boring icons.

sHAYM4N says:

Aw thought that was the 'real' Neighbours show. Harold Bishop with a Lumia, they'd sell like hotcakes.

SteveyAyo#WP says:

Are you saying there is a UK version of this show? Because outside of the Office the UK versions are WAY better.

The Z says:

Hold on, are you seriously saying that the US version of The Office is better than the UK version? I know a very large number of people that would disagree with you :D
