Windows Phone shows up on TV's 'Castle'...again [Video]

Looks like our favorite mobile OS has, once again, made a quite conspicuous appearance on that hit show 'Castle'. Flashing back, it was only like 2 weeks ago since the last sighting (and then way back in November). On the episode airing May 16th, Castle decides to use his Samsung Focus (though carrier and name are blocked) to snap a photo of some evidence for safe keeping. He then quickly creates an email and promptly sends it to his partners (nice use of Outlook there too).

Overall, we dig these little placements as hopefully it'll sink in eventually with the greater viewing public. Plus, Nathan Fillion rocks. Thanks, @benalewis, for the heads up!

  • Wow, and they are apparently running Mango already, as their phones didn't do the camera sound when the picture was taken :-)
  • Windows Live Skydrive was featured on NCIS Los Angeles twice last night! I was shocked to see it featured.
  • I lol'ed. Such horrible product placements (even though they actually work) are just embarrassing :-)Edit: And people automatically thought I was bashing Windows Phone, not the actual product placement (no matter the brand), so I immediately got voted down. You guys suck. Seriously. Light up on life for a change ...
  • Well, we know one thing for sure - Castle isn't a Verizon customer. :/
  • Last weeks episode of TLCs Extreme Couponing showed one of the ladies using her windows phone to check what looked like her excel list of things she was going to buy. It was very short appearance of the phone.
  • I don't care if the product placements are obvious and cheezy, it's exposure! Also, anyone else noticing a lot more WP7 ads online? Keep the phone in the public's eye, Microsoft!
