It's Elementry: Nokia Lumia 800 makes cameo on new Sherlock Holmes drama on CBS
cameo appearance on the premiere episode of the new show, which is entitled Elementry, was none other than the Nokia Lumia 800.
This was not one of those quick pans that have you wondering what phone is being used. No, this was a good 7 to 10 second look at the phone and Windows Phone 7.5 with a couple of swipes through the photo gallery. The phone did have to share some air time with an Apple iPhone 4 or 4S, but it was a nice product placement for Nokia.
You can check it out for yourself at sourcelink and the action starts at about the 8 minute mark. Obviously the Apple iPhone is used quite often on television (besides Elementry, check out the first 5-10 minutes of NBC's Revolution premiere), so we find it interesting when a different model is used.

I watched the episode and while not pausing it and looking intently at the device assumed it was an iphone. Most shows with a hip cool character always seem to have them using an iphone. Most techy characters use something else (Bones used a Windows phone, Hardison from Leverage uses an Android, usually HTC). If the character is a non techy, non hip action guy they give them a flip phone (Gibbs from NCIS, Booth from Bones). But most people would, like I did with the phone on Elementary assume it's an iphone. If nothing else you've gotta give it up for apple's marketing team. The first time I saw the Nexus7 camping ad I assumed it was for an ipad, because before that the only tablet ads for android were from the carriers. Now that carriers aren't subsidizing them, the oems are making their own spots (Nexus7, Galaxy Note 10.1).
