Default The New "What If?" Windows Phone Ads

Effective? Yes. It shows the device, the software, the scenarios - clear features and benefits to owning the phone...and it does it in a way that isn't a rip-off of the Apple approach. I like it! You?

Its definitely one of the better Microsoft commercials. It made me like WP7 more - and I already like WP7.

Yep - me like! :-)

BTW, I don't know when that aired or is going to air, but I got my Focus a week ago for a penny. Yep - 1 cent, which pretty much made getting it a no-brainer.

Nice ad.

I enjoyed the "Really?" ads because they were funny. But I don't think they really make you think, "Wow. I want that."

This one does make you think, "Wow. Gimme! It's cool!"

Forgettable, pretty much blends in with other commercials -- nothing original about the ad itself. Other than the xBox stuff, they show the device doing what any other smartphone does. The type of ad one might zip through, or get up for a bowl of popcorn when it starts

The Motorola Xoom ad campaign is an attention grabber worth writing about (the newer Verizon ones, not the superbowl one):
