TV show Extra & Mario Lopez give away dozens of AT&T Lumia 900s, announce contest
Looks like the Nokia Lumia 900 on AT&T is starting to get that second bounce in advertising. Today on Extra (pop news entertainment show), host Mario Lopez and Microsoft's Margaret Arakawa were talking up the svelte flagship Windows Phone.
During the 60-second segment Mario and Margaret demonstrated the photo app and Facebook tagging/upload capability which we're thinking is always a strong selling point of the OS (especially with that massive social networking being front and center in the news this week). Mario also talks up being organized and how easy it is with Windows Phone.
The phone used was the vibrant and eye-catching Cyan Lumia 900, always a great choice for demonstrating the device to woo potential new users. Extra announced that they will be giving away no less than 10 Nokia Lumia 900s plus 6-months of AT&T service which is a good deal if you're not already on the national carrier..
Finally, to top it all off they gave away dozens of 900's with the same 6-months of free service to all of those lucky folks surrounding them during the segment.
This kind of promotion is unbeatable and the exact kind of exposure the phone needs to get into the mainstream mindset. Hopefully we'll see it pay off as a substantial increase in market share in a few months from now.
