Meet the Windows Phone

Nokia US and Microsoft continue the “Meet the Windows Phone” campaign with a commercial set at a school recital. Parents at the recital rush towards the stage to compete for the best close-up view with their Apple and Samsung smartphones and tablets, while a couple stay poised at the back, confident in the capacity of their Nokia Luia 1020 with its 41 megapixels and reinvented zoom. “Don’t Fight. Switch”. The campaign, shot by Roman Coppola, began with the viral success of “Wedding” in April.
