Microsoft ad takes you on a road trip with a Lumia handset and a Windows laptop
A television ad by Microsoft shows three friends taking a roadtrip of 300 miles. And what would a roadtrip be without some sort of list of things that you want to try to accomplish while away? Jenny has made such a list, and has put it on her Lumia handset. In the car, the Lumia is employed to find a restaurant. And once at the eatery, a Vine video is shot, starring the food. So far, it sounds like your typical road trip.

With a car mount keeping the phone securely in place, HERE maps is giving the driver turn-by-turn directions. Almost every experience means checking something off the things-to-do list. And of course, there is the 20MP rear camera on the phone, snapping away pictures of the sunset, using OIS to keep your picture from looking blurry.

Wait! How did we know that the camera has a 20MP sensor and sports OIS? Because we know that the phone in the ad is the Nokia Lumia 930. And the reason we know that, is that this ad is an edited version of the very first spot produced for the Nokia Lumia 930 this summer. You can view the new, edited version by clicking on the video below. By the way, note how the Nokia branding was removed from the Lumia 930 at the 29 second mark!
