The Windows Phone 8 platform was build for movielovers and others
You might remember a few years ago when Sprint CEO Dan Hesse starred in some commercials for Sprint. Now it is Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer's turn to go Hollywood. Actually, the Microsoft executive is seen only in some pictures on some live tiles pinned to his Windows Phone 8 start page. The gist of the ad is that there are a lot of people in Ballmer's life, some giving him advice, and they can be easily reached using the social networking sites that can be pinned to the Windows Phone 8 home page via live tiles. That is the cue for the live tile with Bill Gates to flip revealing the message "Consider purple type cover for Surface." Other cameos (albeit in still photographs) come from Ballmer's wife and kids.
A second ad released by Microsoft explains how the company built the smartphone for the movielover, the single dad, the music mentor, the foodlover, the socializer, working mom, tomboy and the playmaker to name just a few. We have to say that the screen looks very sharp and colorful on both ads. It surely has something to do with that amazing pixel density on the high end Windows Phone 8 models like the Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8X.
While the new Windows 8 models look great on television, is there that one killer app on the platform that will have smartphone owners dumping their Android handset or Apple iPhone for one of the new Windows Phone 8 models?
I made the switch to WP from Android for the Lumia 900, and haven't looked back. The ONLY things I have missed were a few social games apparently few still play, so no loss! I have better quality apps, no crashing, no launcher issues, quick updated for stuff I didn't know wasn't there, and a phone from one of the best (if not THE best) phone makers in the world.

this is just marketing strategy..
there is same advertisement on jessica alba-- she is the one using the lumia 920. thats why balmer used 8x instead.. they will make ads like this using all newly launched windowsphone8 phones- including ativ s.
Is anyone guessing a note 2 with WP8 from samsung? That will be cool but hey,android just feels light years ahead of all this new OSs.maybe one day they will catch up.till den i will stick with ma gorgeous note 2
