House of Cards Is Still Using Windows Phone!

I’m about 7-8 episodes into Season 5 of House of Cards and they’re still using Windows Phone! It looks like they’ve replaced the UI, but the phone clearly says Microsoft on it.

    <p>So MSFT paid for a multiple season tie-in, and they're going to get their money's worth, dammit?</p>

    <p>So, nothing wrong with Windows Phone. It works. That's it. Some people do not give a fuck about apps. Or it have all the apps that they need.</p>

      <blockquote><a href="#124915"><em>In reply to lordbaal1:</em></a></blockquote><p>Anyone who doesn't care about apps should probably save money and get a flip phone. That's not a put-down. I used a flip phone just 3 years ago when money was tight.</p><p><br></p><p>What some people don't realize is that some of the most useful apps for a mobile device are for interacting with businesses. Those are the kind of apps that Windows Phones just don't have many of. You can access businesses through a browser but the experience remains horrible on smartphones despite the hype over responsive web design.</p>
