New Samsung Focus ad surfaces

The latest ad for the Samsung Focus from AT&T is a cleaner, more straight forward ad (no orange fuzzy creatures) that highlights the functionality of the Windows Phone.

The new ad focuses on the thousands of Marketplace applications for Windows Phone 7 as well as key features such as Microsoft Office and Xbox Live integration. The ad gives apps such as Netflix, Open Table, Fandango, Yelp, Amazon Kindle Reader and others a brief cameo.

While Windows Phones 7 has taken it on the chin this week with the update headaches, the ad does remind us that these phones aren't too shabby as is.

  • Finally!!!! A Great WP7 Ad!!! hallelujah
  • Truly a great Ad!!! Just show the phone, The OS will do the rest
  • THey really like to pimp the Focus, guess it's the leading WP7 seller. Time to see some of these with other phones though.
  • I think this is a really cool ad from Microsoft not Att. It was uploaded to the Windows Phone Youtube account for all Microsoft ads. So lets give Microsoft credit for this well done ad!
  • I agree. Voice-over is Bradley Cooper, who Microsoft has been using for several of their ad campaigns including WP and "to the cloud".
  • Yeap, short sweet and to the point ad. Highlights precisely why I love my phone. Yey!
  • I feel like this could be very effective. Especially since they (smartly) included the Netflix app in the ad. Netflix and Android (who really is WP7 biggest competitor) is not a happy situation and I feel like it could be one of WP7's killer apps over android.
  • Good. Bring in the people over!
  • Ugh I really want to ditch my iPhone 3 and get one of these. I hope the Office Apps are user friendly, but even if not, anything would be an upgrade from my glitchy iPhone. Ah, and I love that song in the background, Sleigh Bells are awesome (which also makes me hope that iTunes runs smoothly on this phone).
