I have created an ad for a Surface inspired phone that I wanted to share with you! I hope you like it. (And that Microsoft end up releasing one of course )
(I hope it is okay to place it in this forum.)

BTW: good upbeat music choice! Would you please try and see if you can show more features of WP8? It will be really cool user-made ad for WP in general if not SurPhone ;)

I would make the screen less blotchy as the reflections move across when the phone is rotating into view. Should be a glass smooth reflection. Also, when the app list is scrolling through you can see the white in the earpiece and windows logo. Logo does not look like a backlit touch button.
What program did you render and animate in?

I used Blender for creating the animation and it took about two days (it was intended to be a quick 24-hours project to test myself but... well, I just kept wanting to make it better )

Its good work for only 2 days of total time invested. I have watched it a bunch of times now. I would like to see a slight bit more pause as the screen is unlocked before the phone moves up and the app list scrolls through. Also, instead of the app list, it should be the start screen live tiles, and they should be animated. Scroll the screen a bit slower so the animations can be seen.
I work in Strata3D. Pretty simple and powerful program. Your lighting looks good. That's always the hardest part for me.
I know it was just a quick project, but that's what happens when you do a good job. People want more.

Things like this make me very envious, I miss tinkering around doing creative things. Many many years ago I spent days playing around with real basic animation on Deluxe Paint.... I know, I know, it is not in the same league as this, but I still miss it. The Amiga was good to me.
Kudos to you for taking the time.Own a Lumia 920 - in UK

The reason the phone flies up the same second he unlocks it was that I wanted it to look like the momentum of the lockscreen pulled the phone away, if you understand what I mean. I think the desired effect might be lost because of the clunky camera movement, but that was at least my intention with not having a pause. The reason for moving through so fast you can't actually see what it is is to give the feeling "it is so much I can't even show you it all".
Even though I would have loved to do the live tiles I ended up doing the app list for a not so flattering reason, that it is simpler. Since they don't move it was very easye to just take screen captures on my Lumia 920 and scroll through those images. If I were to have dynamic live tiles I would have had to make them myself inside my 3D program instead of stealing from my phone since you can't screen capture video.
