White Lumia 900 spotted in latest season of Homeland

Lumia 900 Homeland

The Nokia Lumia 900 has been spotted in the latest season of Homeland, a popular television show currently being aired on Showtime in the states as well as Channel 4 in the UK. It's in its second season and is packed full of action and storyline twists to keep viewers praying for more while enjoying the ride.

As seen in the image montage above, we have Roya Hammad (portrayed by Zuleikha Robinson) making good use of a white Lumia 900. Sure, it's not the Windows Phone 8 Lumia 920 we're all eager to get our mucky paws on, but hey ... advertising and brand awareness is advertising and brand awareness. We'll take anything to help keep the Windows Phone train moving.

Nokia hasn't been shy when it comes to product placement in both music videos and television programmes. We've previously covered the Lumia 800 being featured in BBC series Cuckoo, as well as an unbranded device used in a BetVictor advertisement.

Thanks, @NairobiWP, as well as everyone who sent in tips!

White Lumia 900 spotted in latest season of Homeland

If they wanted to raise the profile of WP8/Nokia Lumnias, they should have tried harder to get the phone on the biggest/best US cellular company, Verizon, instead of settling for a little extra cash giving ATT exclusive for the 920.  They wouldve been better off getting a deal done with Verizon over ATT.

Biggest doesn't necessarily equal best. I would say AT&T is the best because they do what is necessary to get the best phones on their network unlike Verizon who initially passed up iPhone in the beginning and now looks like they passed up 920. Just saying...

I love how you somehow seem privy to the details of the agreement between Nokia and ATT. Also, Verizon being better is wholly personal opinion and they are about the same size as ATT. I'm not a fan of ATT but this carrying on about exclusivity when no one knows the full details is old now.

I hate to say this again and again, but no one but us Windows Phone freaks would notice.
Unless they do something like the Airwaves Chewing gum ads in Splinter Cell(youtu.be/gSr7gFkzQHw) or PizzaHut ads in Code Geass, it's not gonna be very effective. They should do something like having the protagonists use the Lumia while standing in front of a Truck with Lumia ad on it or something. You'll have to see the product name clearly, or only people, who are already customers will notice. Of course they'd have to balance it out, so it's not too blatant.

I did tip WPCentral that the white lumia 900 was spotted in Gossip Girl in the last episode but no mention. was in the final scene. usally in GG the phones get good air time once GG sends out a notification. Here's to hoping there's more Lumia to come.

Hawaii Five-0 has been using WP for quite a while. The last episode had the black Lumia 900 in a few shots. They had one episode last season where one of the characters actually said "What? You don't believe me? Bing it." (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfHuZ5qrYX4) while whipping out a LG WP phone to look something up. ;)

 

Seems Windows Phone is all over TV but not the real world. We need SALES, man! I hope WP8 moves a lot of units.

I know this is a WP website, but ... forget the 900.  Zuleikha Robinson, man!!!  Am I really the only one here with a healthy libido???
