White Lumia 900 spotted in latest season of Homeland

Lumia 900 Homeland

The Nokia Lumia 900 has been spotted in the latest season of Homeland, a popular television show currently being aired on Showtime in the states as well as Channel 4 in the UK. It's in its second season and is packed full of action and storyline twists to keep viewers praying for more while enjoying the ride.

As seen in the image montage above, we have Roya Hammad (portrayed by Zuleikha Robinson) making good use of a white Lumia 900. Sure, it's not the Windows Phone 8 Lumia 920 we're all eager to get our mucky paws on, but hey ... advertising and brand awareness is advertising and brand awareness. We'll take anything to help keep the Windows Phone train moving.

Nokia hasn't been shy when it comes to product placement in both music videos and television programmes. We've previously covered the Lumia 800 being featured in BBC series Cuckoo, as well as an unbranded device used in a BetVictor advertisement.

Thanks, @NairobiWP, as well as everyone who sent in tips!

I saw the Magenta one on Switch the other day. They also have them on Emmerdale. The Cyan and Magenta ones.

Love my white Lumia 900

StreetNerd says:

lol i wanted to say this last week :')

 
Well I saw it too but since it didn't show the OS and only the phone I thought that wasn't intentional

KrazyKatz64 says:

Next time should be lumia 920

theefman says:

They've been doing this for a while now, doesnt seem to have helped raise the profile of WP so far.

DaveGx says:

If they wanted to raise the profile of WP8/Nokia Lumnias, they should have tried harder to get the phone on the biggest/best US cellular company, Verizon, instead of settling for a little extra cash giving ATT exclusive for the 920.  They wouldve been better off getting a deal done with Verizon over ATT.

JoeDizzle33 says:

Biggest doesn't necessarily equal best. I would say AT&T is the best because they do what is necessary to get the best phones on their network unlike Verizon who initially passed up iPhone in the beginning and now looks like they passed up 920. Just saying...

ladydias says:

I love how you somehow seem privy to the details of the agreement between Nokia and ATT. Also, Verizon being better is wholly personal opinion and they are about the same size as ATT. I'm not a fan of ATT but this carrying on about exclusivity when no one knows the full details is old now.

Koki.v3 says:

Lol, tweeted you guys this on Monday ._.

iggypop120 says:

Don't know if it's a good thing the terrorists are using a lumia but Carrie was using Android

 
Well.. Nokia is pretty popular among us terrorists ;)

sholokov says:

You had to bring that up...

ScarletStar says:

I hate to say this again and again, but no one but us Windows Phone freaks would notice.
Unless they do something like the Airwaves Chewing gum ads in Splinter Cell(youtu.be/gSr7gFkzQHw) or PizzaHut ads in Code Geass, it's not gonna be very effective. They should do something like having the protagonists use the Lumia while standing in front of a Truck with Lumia ad on it or something. You'll have to see the product name clearly, or only people, who are already customers will notice. Of course they'd have to balance it out, so it's not too blatant.

I did tip WPCentral that the white lumia 900 was spotted in Gossip Girl in the last episode but no mention. was in the final scene. usally in GG the phones get good air time once GG sends out a notification. Here's to hoping there's more Lumia to come.

rwcrossman says:

It also looks like they are using the black Lumia 900 on NCIS LA, I'm so glad they had G ditch the iphone ;-)

Murgatroyd7 says:

Was just going to post that. I had no idea which phone it was, but it was definitely a Windows phone.

vlad0 says:

Microsoft is all over that show ... even the bad guys are using windows PCs

KLinCHI says:

Hawaii Five-0 has been using WP for quite a while. The last episode had the black Lumia 900 in a few shots. They had one episode last season where one of the characters actually said "What? You don't believe me? Bing it." (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfHuZ5qrYX4) while whipping out a LG WP phone to look something up. ;)

 

ruddymen says:

This show is full of microsoft products

aubreyq says:

Seems Windows Phone is all over TV but not the real world. We need SALES, man! I hope WP8 moves a lot of units.

Tjarren says:

I know this is a WP website, but ... forget the 900.  Zuleikha Robinson, man!!!  Am I really the only one here with a healthy libido???

sholokov says:

ZR...really? I mean, she is no Katrina Kaif.

Murgatroyd7 says:

If you're referring to the gal in the picture...I'll take the phone.

erzhik says:

They also used white Lumia 900 on latest Gossip Girl episode.

Budi Gozhali says:

I buy Nokia Lumia 900 so very nice for windows, and good luck for NOKIA but not work at my place a as well why?
