Jamie Oliver loves WP7

Jamie Oliver, a famous and renowned chef, has been spotted on TV using a Windows Phone 7 handset. We recently covered a Pro Bowl Quarterback getting his hands on a device (opens in new tab), but this is pretty big (for this side of the ocean anyway). Nice to see another popular TV idol using the platform in favour for iOS and Android. I'm suspicious as to what apps Jamie would have installed, possibly Cocktail Flow (opens in new tab)?

The programme where the WP7 usage was sighted was Jamie's Food Revolution Hits Hollywood, which aired Tuesday 14th in the UK. He is seen using the Bing voice search to locate a school in the area and excites "yeah, that's what I'm talking about" as the device is instantly responsive with results.

Check out the video footage of the Windows Phone (we're pretty sure it's a Focus) cameo after the break.

Thanks Gunzta for the images and video, you're a star!

  • If this is product placement it's the most natural one I've seen. All the other videos I've seen I've been like "oh yeah, Microsoft paid for that. But with this I'm not sure.
  • tv idol? who is this guy
  • ... Did you bother to read the article? Besides that, just because you don't know or recognize someone, doesn't mean they aren't famous to a lot of people. I don't know anyone from Gossip Girl or many other popular shows and movies, but I know they're probably famous to a bunch of people.
  • He's probably bigger in Europe then in the US, I guess someone who tried to change what americans eat isn't going to be very popular ;)
  • I recently saw a tweet by Lamar Odom (RealLamarOdom) of the Lakers promoting the HTC Trophy.
