Television directors seem to like iOS running on Nokia Lumia hardware
What is it about the combination of iOS running on a Nokia Lumia phone that makes television directors go gaga? In a PSA made by the government for television, to promote tornado warnings available on smartphones from FEMA, a Nokia Lumia 920 is the phone used. Except that instead of running Windows Phone 8, the handset is running iOS.

The same combination of iOS on a Nokia Lumia smartphone is seen on a new Netflix original series called Orange is the New Black. This is a show about a U.S. women’s prison, made by the creator of Weeds.

So as it turns out, television producers believe that the combination of iOS running on a Nokia Lumia device is more photogenic than an Apple iPhone running iOS or a Nokia Lumia model running Windows Phone 8. Very interesting.

iphone(iOS) thriving because of apps.
It has good hardware but its the same for the last three generations.

Nokia hardware is great. Its beautiful, colorful and durable. WP OS is gorgeous as well. But the problem is its behind in the apps department. Hopefully with more Lumia sales each quarter developers will make more Windows phone apps.

I will differ with you over here. It is not only the apps. For last many years Apple is have the same interface because it is one of the best.
Windows looks only good. But the basic usability is horrible in windows and miles away from Apple or Android. After using windows for last 1.5 years, I feel it even lack the usability in comparison to Symbian 3.
Windows without Nokia cameras would have died like WebOS by now.

You are joking right? Are you by any chance talking about Windows Mobile 6.5?
Windows looks great and even has great functionality. Majority of the popular apps have already started to migrate to WinPho and the overall runs excellent lag free. I use it for my work in a corporate environment with no issue via the Office, Outlook, Skydrive and Evernote apps. So what are you talking about?

No I am talking about Lumia 710. If you remember WM6.5 is long dead. Take a very simple example, you are in a call and you need to look into some other contact information. You just cannot do it. It will change it to call screen. It has good offline map, but the map information does not get updated. Even the text editing is one of the worst of it kind. And the big corporate environment you talk about tell me which phone does not support it. Any phone which call itself smart supports these basic features.

Who cares? You can skin any Android device to look like iOS (although I'm insure why you'd want to), maybe you can with WP too? And post-production can make anything look like anything on TV these days. There's no guarantee this is Nokia device that is ACTUALLY running iOS.

Why? The Lumias use Apple design language, a la iPod Nano.

Lest we forget, slap in the face to Apple iPhone since it's, apparently, not good for it's own OEM OS. *SMH*

Hollywood has already screwed up star trek because the captain kirk in today's movies got the Enterprise right after graduation from star fleet academy instead of at the age of 34 like in the original TV series and made other changes to star trek. I am not at all in shock at all about this
deviant Product.

How did they do that? lol I want to see that hack. My one improvement/suggestion for the WinPho user interface exp. has been to allow custom wallpaper backgrounds in the back on the homescreen to give the 'floating' experience that iOS7 will provide.
