Hollywood starlets come out for Microsoft's All Access Holiday Party
Hollywood starlets came out for Microsoft's All Access Holiday Party and for the evening celebrities like Olivia Munn, Emmy Rosum, Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Emma Roberts got to play around with some of Microsoft's new devices including Windows Phone 8 handsets and Microsoft Surface RT tablets. Apparently the girls were coached on how to use Windows Phone 8 as some text messages were sent out. We know that at least one of the actresses is tech savvy as Olivia Munn used to co-host G4's Attack of The Show.

Speaking of Olivia Munn, her comment on Windows Phone 8? "It was like love at first swipe." Emma Roberts was spotted walking around with a Microsoft Surface RT with a pink Touch Cover. It was a great way for Microsoft to show that its new mobile devices are suitable for the fairer sex and aren't made just for men. Roberts was so excited about her tablet that she said that she is ordering a few to give out as gifts for the holiday.

They can pay off stars but they can't pay off real users.

If you buy tech based upon what celeb uses it or endorses it, then that is just plain sad.

Agreed. This is an industry that morally can't hold down marriages or relationships yet can publically announce affairs, drug abuse and over zealous liquor consumption as a way to business market their notoriety. Whether it be using Apple, Android, Windows Etc, this is the least area of viewable sources that I would base my purchase desision on.

Agreed, but people like having what "famous" people have. These are low-key celebrities (starlets is accurate). It isn't new. I remember as a teen when "Friends" was on, some people would clamor for the stuff they had seen on the show, and the practice has continued since.

Not sure who Emma Roberts is, but Rossum was the leading lady in the 2004 movie version of "Phantom of the Opera", and I knew of Munn from G4, as the article stated.

*edit* I liked her up. Haven't seen any if her stuff but she is cute enough. However, she is my baby sister's age, so that is an instant turn-off

MS needs to can their marketing team and or the plug agency they are using. Using celebrities who do not know a can of chili from a sack of beans is laughable. The android malware smear campaign backfired and ended up being a burning ring of fire. If you want to be cheap form street teams it operates for free. I am willing to be in a street team in the San Francisco Bayarea promoting WP8. Your Bevis and Butthead market approach has failed on all front.

considering how many kids at the jr high i'm at have smart phones, i think this is a descent promo. maybe not the right demographic imo, but ms is trying to break out of its corporate shell bit by bit

It is pretty sad to choose a phone based on a celebrity endorsement but... It is just as pathetic to just buy an iphone because everybody else has one!

On your first point I agree. As for your second point, it may not be as pathetic as you think. For any phone to catch on in a big way it needs to be a good product - mediocrity doesn't fly for long in the consumer space. So if you're shopping for a phone, picking the one that everyone else has can be a safe bet.

I agree, man! They need to do a lot more to convince the people that actually put money in their pockets.
