Nokia Lumia 920 stars on television thanks to nifty product placements
Product Placement is a huge business in Hollywood. Why, had PhoneArena been around in the day, you might have seen Doogie Howser reading the site before posting his daily diary at the end of each episode. Or even before that, couldn't you imagine Archie Bunker arguing with the Meathead over which OS was better, iOS or Android? Would Edith have stood up for Windows Phone 8 or BlackBerry 10?

The Nokia Lumia 920 on Arrow, note the enhanced UI
What brings up these strange thoughts at such an ungodly hour in the morning, is a couple of sightings of the Nokia Lumia 920 on television. Yes, the handset has suddenly picked up some momentum, and finds itself being talked about in the same conversation as the Apple iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S III and the Samsung GALAXY Note II. So it might not have been much of a surprise to find the model starring in Don Cheadle's House of Lies about a management consultant firm. Red and black versions of the handset were seen on the last two episodes. A Windows Phone 8 model in the workplace? Good product placement by Microsoft, getting a management consultant to forgo the BlackBerry.

The Nokia Lumia 920 also showed up on Arrow which is a series about the Green Arrow comic book hero. The picture accompanying this article is from the 11th episode of the first season, and you can see the chrome enhancements made to the UI by the prop guys on the set. And yes, we should repeat that Jessica Alba was indeed spotted with a white Nokia Lumia 920 at a fashion show. Whew! What a busy week for the Windows Phone 8 model.
