Nokia hires Former Miss World Priyanka Chopra for Lumia 800 ads in India

Personally, I think Priyanka Chopra is easily one of the most beautiful women in the world (she was after all Miss World 2000), and it seems that Nokia agree with me as well! They’ve actually recruited Ms. Chopra to star in some ‘Blown away by Lumia’ ads in India and while we obviously know they’ve been staged (come on, as if guys won’t be clamouring to ask her out… what… just me?),  they still get the point across in amusing fashion – namely that the Lumia 800 is faster than them all!

Once again, it must be pointed out that it’s just for publicity (because she’s gorgeous) and the Lumia 800 is a stunning little number as well. Nokia continue to push ahead with full intensity in India, where I have personally witnessed the Lumia 800 being the centerpoint of their Nokia brand. I hope more countries take a note from this and make actual TV ads with well known celebrities (I mean who wouldn’t want to see Camilla Belle with a Windows Phone, or even some one like Mila Kunis, who is an actual gamer at times!). Keep it going Nokia!

    lol at “proven” in first video. There was an article a while ago about how either Microsoft or Nokia shuffled some poor dude out after one of these challenges and told him he didn’t win (for some unknown reason) when his phone beat WP7 -.-

    It was a retail store manager. Microsoft even said in official statement that this manager didn’t handle things correctly. WP7 has smoked 80-99% of all other phones though.

    Oh these were definitely staged for publicity (unlike the other challenges where real people who weren’t hired took them). On that occasion, the store was in the fault – Microsoft appologized and gave him his winnings (everyone was in a ruckus about it).

    Overall, WP7′s won over 40,000 challenges and lost about 800 I think. Pretty good if I don’t say so myself.
