    But you can buy the HTC Titan and the Samsung Focus S. You'd think Microsoft would want to advertise with all of it's partners who produce phones for wp7.

    Maybe MS is just laying the groundwork, now. We're like the massive beta group :P Wait until the Apollo arrives... the harbinger of the future, as MS sees it :D

    edit:kk, that was cheesy.

    After seeing the Into ads, no doubt there will be a Lumia 800 in my meat hooks this spring!

    This was more Nokia's doing than Microsoft.

    It was mighty awesome though. Would love to see stuff like that here.

    American consumers are a bit less fickle than Europeans. That's why Apple doesn't grow large marketshare, but they never lose any, and Android is gaining the way it is. People here are generally not likely to consider alternatives as much, especially when almost all those phones come with locked 3G bands or from a carrier on contract.

    If they just bought phonex, they won't care that Microsoft has great advertising. The amount of the market that chases technology the way many early adopters here do, is very very small.

    I don't think we'll see the full impact Nokia and the better WP7 devices (and later updates) have on the market until a lot of those contracts fall off next year...

    Its the reason you see all young americans wearing exactly the same outfits at the same time. They are told what is cool they don't decide what is cool. Thats left to the europeans.

    The Europeans thought symbian was cool. Look how that panned out.

    Nice stereotype.

    I do not care about trendy fashion or trendy stuff. I buy what I want and think is cool. I would almost guarantee most of that does not get on the european "cool" list.



    Is the OP the Deadmou5 show on the building? That was amazing to watch on youtube even. Would have loved to be able to attend something like that.

    Guess you missed that 50' tall Windows Phone in NYC two weeks ago. When Nokia finally hits the US shore I am certain they will do it with a bang.

    If you go to Disneyland, they have a similar thing they do with the Small World building. It's pretty amazing to see these projection shows in person. The accuracy of the projections can be quite impressive. They can make individual windows look like they're opening and closing because the projection lines up perfectly with the window. To see it on the huge scale that Nokia did would be awesome.

    Damn, you beat me too it...can't believe it took someone that long though to mention it!

    Yea...but Europe is way cooler than the US...you would never see something as cool as the 50' Windows Phone they are building in Paris in the US. Amirite?

    There simply is no "Europe" it is a group of several markets that often don't overlap . So I think that the US as a single country actually has more going on than most other countries. I'm sure Nokia has something planned in Europe.

    Oops, I am sorry that the post didn't convey what I meant to say more specifically. While I would describe myself as a European, the fact is that markets in the countries are often autonomous. A sweepstake or coupon in Britain rarely works in Germany and vice versa. That is what I meant with my statement.

    And besides, I am sure the Nokia ad train will head to the states when the phone becomes available. The brand has traditionally been strong in European markets, so it's no surprise that they would float the idea there first.
