Windows Phone gets front & center on the TV show 'Castle' [Video]

Windows Phone first made an appearance on the hit TV show 'Castle' way back in mid November (see here, including video). Since then, we guess he forgot he had it since we didn't see it much...until last night.

Not only was the Samsung Focus (with 'Samsung' blacked out) featured by the main start Nathan Fillion, but also his lovely side-kick Stana Katic (who plays Kate Beckett). In fact, we saw the phone either featured or in the background being used (including once as a speakerphone) no less than four times--and that was us just skimming the show.

Some are calling the "Netflix moment" a little gratuitous and yes, perhaps it is but on the other hand, haters gonna hate, amirite?

  • I missed this episode last night! But pretty cool; Castle typically uses the iPhone. I think alot of the shows on the CW network feature Windows Phone, and Hawaii 5-0 features both the LG Optimus 7 and iPhone. If only Windows Phone could be featured on 'the big screen'....
  • Actually this has to be the 2nd or 3rd time they've shown WP on Castle.
  • Well, I do mention back in November with our post on it...so 2nd is covered. Haven't heard about a 3rd.
