Microsoft touts Nokia Lumia Icon in a couple new video ads
Now that the Nokia Lumia Icon is officially official, and soon-to-be available through Verizon, Microsoft shared a couple of ads which we are sure will be gracing the ad space on televisions across the United States in short order.

There is a lot to like about the Nokia Lumia Icon, as we mentioned in our review of the new Windows Phone, the camera is stellar, the call quality is solid and it delivers on the consistent Windows Phone experience.

Being a Windows Phone, and more importantly a Nokia, the camera is the Icon’s center piece. Microsoft’s ads center on camera and video quality themed nicely with winter sports (for those glued to watching the Olympics in Sochi). The first ad is your typical narrated overview of the device. The second one was recorded using the Nokia Lumia Icon.

The pictures and video look great. Are you picking one up?

You speak as this device isn't just a small rumor... There's no evidence that it exist outside of PA... Well, I guess considering that their will be new Lumia 8.1-0xxxx hardware you can call it the "1820", but WPC isn't even reporting on this device yet.

Still don't like the design, but I'm glad Nokia isn't letting the lineup go stale or stagnant. Looking forward to the WP8.1 phones.

It is stated as the brightest outdoor display at the end, is it a message from Microsoft against the reviews that the display is so bad in outdoors??

My friend has the lumia icon and said that it has great outdoor visibility, and Nokia is known for best outdoor visibility screens so i don't think they would put awful screen on a high spec phone like this.
