Saw my first new WP7 ad on TV.

So I was watching Once Upon A Time this morning with the wife when I came across a TMobile ad for the Radar. Anyone else seeing any of these ads. Anything else for any other carriers?

It's kinda troubling to me that they chose a Fairy Tale show to advertise this phone. But, then again, I've always been a little cynical. Hopefully, it's the beginning of a decent campaign to actually get the word out about the new OS(even though it's been out there for a little while) and people will begin to take a look at it more and carriers will begin to support it more.

The word is there is a lot of money still left for advertising. I do remember the "Really ?" ads, as I saw a lot of them during baseball and football games last year but, nothing really new here.

not really, last year at this time there wasn't many apps now 90% of apps on other platforms are now on WP, not to mention that also last year at this time there was no copy/paste, CDMA and the like. Now that mango is out we have more features than iOS5 even.

I would love to see ads showing that. Actually show what it can do, and do it faster than the other OSs.

WP7 is getting much better and I believe that more of useful apps that are already on android and iOS will come to WP7 but 90% is doubtful. If you have read this somewhere can you state your source? I've been looking for logmein and Qik for the longest. I've given up on skype due to lack interest.

Some are confirmed but a confirmation doesn't do much.
