Ellen is definitely one popular talk show in the United States today, so seeing a Nokia device being flashed on the TV screen with host Ellen De Generes is a really big promotion, indeed. And that’s exactly what Nokia US and AT&T had done as they gave away lots of Lumia 1520s to the audience in one of the episodes! Imagine watching the show live and getting an awesome smartphone all at the same time – nice, eh?
Before we go on with the details, let’s watch the video that was posted by Nokia US on YouTube:
The said episode of Ellen actually included a promotion for AT&T’s affordable offer with Beats Music. Since the service is now available with Lumia smartphones, the telecom company decided to give away Lumia 1520 as prize for the contestants of the game “Beats Me, That’s a Humdinger: Presented by AT&T”, with guest Cameron Diaz. Not only that, it was revealed later that the entire audience will be receiving the Nokia phablet as well! Great prize, if you ask me, given the amazing features of the Lumia 1520. I’m just wondering which of the two variants did AT&T gave away, although I strongly guess that it must be the one with 16GB of internal storage.
Placing a Nokia Lumia smartphone in a show like Ellen might have really cost a large sum for AT&T, but we know that it’s a really good move to promote the Lumia 1520. So far, the 1520 is the best Windows Phone handset we have today – the best in everything! From the OS, hardware, display screen, camera, battery, internal storage, and other specs, Lumia 1520 is a potential formidable rival for popular devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and HTC Max.
As many US citizens become aware of what Nokia and Microsoft can offer with smartphone users through Lumia WP8 devices, the time will come that every effort for promoting these will be worth it. WP8 had already beaten iOS in many countries, so we’ll not be surprised when Microsoft’s platform has ascended to the ranks of second mobile ecosystem. The future is bright for Lumia smartphones (if Microsoft won’t change the handset series name)!
