Jessica Alba swaps her iPhone for a Windows Phone

Jessica Alba swaps her iPhone for a Windows Phone
You hear that right, guys - Jessica Alba has finally let go of her iPhone in favor of a (Microsoft-provided) Windows Phone! Don't know what's so exciting about this piece of semi-lifestyle, semi-tech news, but nonetheless, we do feel excited about it.

During the official launch event of Windows Phone 8, Joe Belfiore and Steve Ballmer asked Jessica Alba to join them on stage and help them explain some of the more specific features of the new operating system. She seemed a bit nervous at first, but did a great job overall. Although, we're sure that even if she just stood there, without uttering a single word, we'd still have said that she's done a great job. Such wolves we are... But anyways, the woman did make a point of how easy it was (for Joe Belfiore, that is) to transfer all of her music library from her iPhone to her new Windows Phone device, and how useful the Kid's Corner is for parents who want keep their kids occupied for a bit (for one reason or another).

So there you have it, guys, one celebrity has now betrayed Apple and joined the ranks of Microsoft. Do you realize what this means, guys? There are only a few hundred left to go now! Keep it up, Steve!

Actually the article was right. She had an iphone. If you watched the video they had she actually admits to having an iphone before microsoft approached her about the windows phone and she wanted to know if they could transfer all her music over and if they could she would make the switch. She did have a Lumia 900 but I'm sure she was sponsored to have it. She started using a Lumia 900 out of no where and she uses an ipad so it just doesn't add up.

If she tells me to get a windows phone, I wouldn't have second thoughts No to mention Win 8 on pc was so nice, it's might be nice to have all devices synced.

Jessica Alba actually comes across as one of those very very VERY few intelligent and beautiful female celebrities so yes of course she was paid but she still agreed to do it which is smart on her part to leave the Apple b.s. and go for windows phones. Windows arent my favorite OS but they are a close 2nd ;)

Whether it's for money or love it's a good move. I would have been better is she came over to Android and world of customization within.

It just a contract with Microsoft. After some time she'll back to, maybe, iPhone 6 :)

OK, guys, you're supposed to think with the part of your anatomy between your ears, not your legs. Oh, wait - the latter isn't thinking at all.

OK, WP is better than iOS but how much did she get paid?

She´s been using WP way before she was hired by MS. She was seen using a Nokia Lumia 900, that´s how she called MS´s attention.

one must wonder if she did it out of preference or if she had a really shrewd publicist

Nervous? Look at the short guy in the second picture, he's practically sweating, because he's standing next to her.

You are so right! Why do I keep confusing my iPhone for a rooted Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Samsung Galaxy Nexus? Man I have to stop that! lol


Posts: 3131; Member since: Jan 12, 2010

SuperAndroidEvo, that's what I'm talking about! I was just informed that I actually bought a SGS3 instead of an iPhone!!!! They look soooooo much alike, I was so confused! I didn't even notice the HUGE Samsung logo on the front of the phone or see the Samsung Galaxy logos on the box. Those phones look soo much alike after all, any smart person(like myself) would confuse the two for sure!
