The Rock gets a free Nokia Lumia 1020 before it launches, directly from Nokia
A Tweet from Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson reveals that the former University of Miami Hurricane gridiron star turned wrestler turned actor is now the proud owner of the Nokia Lumia 1020. You might ask yourself how that is possible since the phone won't ship from AT&T until Tuesday. It turns out that Nokia made a personal delivery of the phone right to the gymwhere the star was working out.

Yes, if you are rich and famous, the handset manufacturers fawn all over you and are more than happy to send you their latest flagship model for free. Last October, prior to the launch of the Nokia Lumia 920, actress Jessica Alba received the phone from Nokia and was quickly photographed with the new model. That type of publicity is priceless and explains why people like Dwayne Johnson are personally presented with a handset that has yet to be launched.
