NBC's Parks and Rec filled with Microsoft phones and tablets
Microsoft and Nokia are not shy in getting product placements for Windows Phone powered Nokia Lumia handsets. We have seen these devices appear on music videos for Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson and others. We also have seen various Nokia smartphones make appearances on television shows like Arrow and House of Lies. The latter in particular was a brilliant move because it showed the phone in the workplace instead of, say, a BlackBerry. Canyons, a feature film starring Lindsey Lohan, showed off the Nokia Lumia 925.

Now, the cast of NBC's Parks and Rec have been seen on the show using the Nokia Lumia 1020 and the Nokia Lumia 925. Why, there even was a Microsoft Surface table thrown into the same episode. Because of these product placements, we wonder if television and movie scribes ever stop and think which smartphone a certain character would use. For example, Breaking Bad's Walter White, even with $11 million in a barrel, continued to use a non-descript flip phone like he did throughout the series ("Goodbye Lydia"). Somehow, that seems perfectly suited for the science teacher turned meth cook.

Check out the slideshow below for some pictures showing how the Nokia handsets and the Microsoft slate appeared during their Parks and Rec stint.
