Microsoft has hired the help of David Mitchell for the company's latest Windows Phone adverts to be aired in the UK. You may be familiar with the name and/or voice as Mitchell is better known for the Peep Show (on Channel 4) and has event been part of the Mac vs PC adverts from Apple.
Now, Mitchell is selling Lumia Windows Phones with wireless charging as the first topic, promoted in the above cartoon.
It's a catchy, yet humorous advertisement from Microsoft and one we're sure will get the message across. It's also fairly subtle, focusing on wireless charging. Microsoft will also be rolling out more adverts covering other features that set Lumia Windows Phones apart from the competition. Be on the lookout for more videos.
