Windows Phone shows you the right way to take a sick day from work
Take a sick day and hit the slopes with a Nokia Lumia Icon. It’s not like you had anything important to do, right? Now that the spring equinox is upon us, the time is going to be right to start paring down on the winter wear and you can go skiing in t-shirts and shorts.

What might some of those adventures look like? Well, the Windows Phone gang took to the slopes with a Nokia Lumia Icon and had some fun in the powder, all while extoling the virtues of the camera quality on Nokia’s newest flagship.

The whole ad was shot on the Icon, so we are treated to 1080p video tempered with optical image stabilization and decent sound due to the four microphones to capture the noise as we are taken down the hill.

The Nokia Lumia Icon is a Verizon exclusive and is available for $199.99 on a two-year contract or $23-per-month on Verizon Edge. Naturally, the ad plays to what are considered Nokia strengths, but if you read our review of the Lumia Icon, we think you will find a great all-around performer with a fine camera and outstanding build quality.

You need to calm down your zealousness on these WP articles. Nowhere in his comment did he he say he didn't care. No one appointed you the sole defender of all things WP. It's pitiful watching you guarding the comments section day in & day out. It's so bad that you're responding to comments people never made. Get a life, guy.

Who are you?... And why should I care?..
You obviously don't know why I made that comment, so stay out of it...
......................
Sounds like you got a problem so you need to find a way to deal with it, but don't burden me with it.. Call your mom... You see something I do that you don't like then you can tell someone else, or keep it to yourself, but don't waist your time telling me about it... You stand up for trolls then you get treated like one!
...........................
You a troll like this guy? Huh?

My name is Gabe. That's who I am. However, I don't see what bearing that has on this conversation & I don't give a f*ck whether or not you care. I obviously don't know why you made that comment? I think I do. You're a pitiful fanboy who is clearly quite insecure about his platform otherwise you wouldn't feel the need to jump on the back of everyone who has something negative to say about it.

Believe me, what little problem I have with your goofiness will cause me to lose no sleep. I could call mom, but I assure you she would have no idea what the hell I was talking about, so that would be rather pointless. I stick my nose where I please. Deal with it. If you don't like it, then perhaps you should call your mom. I'm not a troll & that comment you decided to respond to wasn't a troll comment.

I'm no hater & I have nothing against WP. I just think it's sad that you "waste" (not waist; learn a little grammar) your time "trolling all the trolls". Alas, it's your time & you're free to do with it what you please, but almost 3,000 comments in less than 9 months? Wow. My suggestion? Get out more. Good day, sir.

Haha. You're seriously going to act like you didn't read that? You're funny. Guess I got under your skin. Also, I'm 30 years old & I have 2 kids...you're more than likely the kid here. Good job on learning the difference between waist & waste. I guess you read it after all.

Pretty pathetic of you to bring that up.. Lol.. But, you think I read that comment??.. Ok, I did, up until I saw your real name... Lol!.. Look, I can't help you.. I told you to get that mom of yours to help you,, if she can....... I'm not gonna keep telling you the same old thing over and over, boy!..

I'm perfectly okay with that. If you really think I'd be bothered by anything some goof on the internet would say to me, you're off your rocker. I don't get off on insulting people on the internet, nor do I make it a point to insult people. The illusion of power you think it gives you is hilarious. You're the kid here if you think you have any control whatsoever. Keep trolling from your basement though. I hope it gets you far in life.

G, I'm with you. The guy who initially responded actually was trying to be funny and he also was giving WP props that's why he ended it with "Great angle WP". Well, that's how I read it anyway.

I appreciate it. However, I wouldn't expect Rodney (ironic that he makes fun of my name), the sole defender of all things WP, to understand that.

Now that's impressive. The only downside it its exclusivity. Now itching for some 930.

Well, you might have to wait that long if it turns out to be another att exclusive, and is released internationally later....
