My sister (15) got a Lumia 900 last fall less rhan 2 months before WP8 launched. My Mom and I have Windows Phones, so naturally she followed suit. However after 6 months, we ended up getting her a used iPhone 4 because she complained about all her friends having an iPhone.
When I had dinner with her today, she actually brought up the 1020 and was excited about it. Of course now course she wants one. I didn't say anything to bring the subject up, or tell her about the 1020. So she's seeing the ads and they are peeking her interest.
My buddy who is a big Android fan wants one too, but he wants it with Android, lol.

Yeah, anytime people ask me about my phone or I talk about it, they go, "Oh yeah, that new one they launched! It looks like a cool phone!" Of course, people said that a lot when I got my Lumia 900, and its sales were meh...
Then again, one lady when I was eating lunch at the North Shore of Oahu (Hawaiian vacation, so happy!) saw my phone sitting on the table, resting in its camera grip. She noticed me texting, and quickly became curious. Apparently, her curiosity got the better of her, because she finally came over and asked, "Excuse me, is that a camera or a phone?" So I gave her a nice, couple minute demo, explaining the device, showing off its camera and the camera grip. She seemed very impressed, and when I was done, she said, "Well then, I think I know what my next phone will be."
So the ads, combined with the uniqueness of the device (therefore, getting people to look and be curious as to what it is) are a great force af spreading awareness.
I know we say this for every device, but I think our current power packed 1020, 925, and 928 flagship combo (for the US at least) could finally be Nokia's breakthrough. Carriers are finally heavily pushing these phones. Granted, I've still heard people complain about the lack of apps on Windows Phone, but hey, it's better than a year ago when people didn't even know what Windows Phone is.*Signature goes here*

Agreed.... while on vacation in Hilton Head, I had my phone out and was taking pictures of the marsh land with a few kids around and adults who were crabbing. A 10ish year old kid walked up to me and said - Is that the new phone on TV? COOL!
Made my day.

but yeah. I watched a football game on ESPN MNF the other night and saw the 1020 commercial at least 5 times. Maybe 10 times.
