    I like this one (except maybe that kids' laugh at the end)

    I've noticed WP7 appearing on TV several times in the last few days; Nokia Lumia sponsoring Films on Channel 5 and the HTC Radar Advert (with the catchy tagline "In the right hands, it brings you closer").

    One nice example of product placement of Microsoft technology is in the new series of Hawaii Five-0. They have a Surface-computer in their office (and use it each episode), and you see them using Windows Phones quite often (with the camera usually zooming in on the phone, showing the UI).

    @Ian2: Fantastic ad! I want more like that one. It really demonstrates the ecosystem that's available.

    I had to cringe at the amount of Apple product placement in the final series of Spooks.  Great show (unless you are an American - because you are quite often the bad guys)

    I saw a sign about WP7 outside our local phone shop. I actually did a double take when I walked past. It was some sort of deal where you could try the HTC Radar for 14 days free of charge, or something. I was kind of surprised because this was the first time I had seen promotional material for WP7 without having searched for it myself.

    You see it quite a bit in the last series of Bones too. H5O's surface computer always bugs me though, the way they swoosh windows up onto the normal displays, don't know why. Admittedly not as bad as the Apple stuff in the Spooks though.
