When Ballmer introduced the new Windows Phone 7 operating system I was just thinking “great, another boring bald guy named Steve trying to sell me a phone.” But, at the same time I saw the new commercial Microsoft did to market their mobile OS and it was much more entertaining. Check it out!
Really: New Windows Phone Ad
With this new ad, Microsoft is subliminally claiming that their phones are:
- More efficient – You can check your emails, texts, social network, and calls instantly.
- Less Annoying
- Not for morons – like the guy checking his phone at the urinal.
While this may be true in some cases, I think most people are stuck staring at their phones all day because they are playing games, addicted to Facebook, or texting maniacs. I mean, texting is really main way a lot of people communicate and I can’t see Apple, Nokia, Android, or Microsoft making that faster. Regardless of the point, I thought this was a really funny ad! It really emphasizes all of those annoying people that irritate the rest of us by using their phones at inappropriate times.
If you haven’t tried out the Windows Phone 7 platform yet, you can test it out on your computer by following a groovy How-to! Want to play around with a real Microsoft phone? Expect to see Windows Phone 7 devices in-store on November 8, 2010 at AT&T and T-Mobile locations.
