Ke$ha Shows off a Fabulous Yellow 920 in New “Die Young” Music Video

| November 8, 2012 | 35 Replies

Here’s another bit of obvious product placement by Nokia, showing off the gorgeous Yellow Lumia 920 in Ke$ha’s latest music video “Die Young”. The 920 gets a decent amount of screen time, first showing up in some steroid munching bad-boys surprisingly small hands (it┬ámakes the phone look huge), then popping up a couple more times while sending a text and just swiping down the home screen.


One of the greatest advantages of the awesome Lumia colors is that they’re almost instantly noticeable, no other phone can stand out and catch your eye lie they do; which is always a good thing. Also is it jut me or does that screen look rendered? does the text in the message seems a bit too large?

If you’re brave enough check out the video down below, my only word of advice to Ke$ha is to stick to auto-tune….. because this sure aint any better.

Thanks for the tip Nabkawe

    These are the things you have to do. Just like when Apple used U2 for the iPod.

      U2 = APPLE

      Ke$ha = Nokia

      Sorry for interrupting, but this is a very intersting post I saw.
      Do we have a chance to make ourselves rich like Apple shareholders?

      Tell your friends and your friends┬┤ friends around the world
      to consider Nokia and take some thoughts out of my post here:

      Nokia Is a Wide-Ranging Company and The Stock is With Hidden Value Right Now

      Nokia does not only make phones.
      Nokia┬┤s feature-phone division is doing well, because of Asha phones.
      Nokia has not lost about 1 billion dollars a quarter like the media says, because Nokia has 5 business parts and 4 of them are profitable. Therefore, the exact number is much much smaller.
      Nokia┬┤s loss is only 17 million euros any more (compared to Reuters┬┤s consensus 277 million and Nokia┬┤s last two previous quarters about 290 million each), this was much better.
      Nokia Siemens Networks is doing very strongly (over 300 million euros profit in 3Q. More business to come in the future: 3G in developing countries, 4G in developed and emerging countries)
      NAVTEQ was also profitable, NAVTEQ┬┤s number might be better in 4Q, because of the deals with Amazon, Yahoo, Oracle and many car-companies.
      Nokia┬┤s patent portfolio earns about 500 million euros a year, and the number is still increasing.
      Nokia has cut expenses (which saves about 1 billion euros a year) and in the future Nokia does not have to spend so much in R&D either, because it has teamed up with Microsoft.
      Nokia┬┤s WP 8 devices will hit more markets, for example the Middle-East countries (Lumia phones have not been in these countries yet till now).
      New Lumia generation looks promising.
      Lumia 920 beats iPhone 5 and Galaxy S III with these features:
      Floating-lens PureView camera with optical image stabilization
      Wireless charging
      Super sensitive and bright screen that can be used with gloves or finger nails
      Premium GPS that can be used also offline
      Augmented reality City Lens
      Free music with no advertisements
      Lumia 920 also beats iPhone 5 with NFC
      Lumia 920 does not only have a great low-light camera, but also has exceptional audio recording quality due to the 3 HAAC Rich-recording microphones.
      Right now, there is no way to compare Nokia to Apple among most smart phone consumers, but there is hope in the future.
      For example, Nokia just signed the contract with China Mobile (who has about 660 million subscribers, which is about 70% of all subscribers in this world┬┤s biggest nation), and even though iPhone is very popular in the US and Europe, Windows Phone OS already surpasses iOS in the world┬┤s biggest countries beside China, such as Brasil, India and Russia. Even though in these countries more low price point phones are sold, but these are the most important emerging giants in the world where Nokia┬┤s position and brand are still quite strong. And it may be sooner than we think when more people in these countries are able to afford high end smart phones.
      Nokia has not lost about 1 billion dollars a quarter as the media says, because its other parts of business are profitable (while 1Q┬┤s and 2Q┬┤s total loss 290 million each, 3Q┬┤s total loss only 17 million euros any more). Therefore, 3.6 billion euros net cash should be enough for Nokia┬┤s transition period before WP8 phones take off. There is still enough room for a third ecosystem in this world, beside emerging markets Europe has adopted WP phones in a very encouraging way (for example Italy has already over 10% market share for WP phones, considering the Lumia debut has not been a year yet, since last November only. WP OS has already grown a lot faster compared to iOS and Android in their first quarters). Lumias were sold 9,9 million units under a year. The number is small compared to Iphones and Androids sold today, but it is not a bad start. It is more fair to compare the numbers among the 3 in their first year.
      Now when the DOWS and S&P have almost hit all time highs, investors start to think more about cheap and potential value stocks. NOK is now only about 0.8x book value, and usually NYSE stocks are on an average about 2x book value (Apple about 6x book value). Therefore, I think NOK is cheap enough for its values. Another reason is NOK has been already shorted massively about 19% of its total shares.
      Apart from Vertu and so on, Nokia still can sell its patents, since it still has about 30 000 patents in its own hands (in case Nokia needs more cash).
      If the stock price still goes cheaper and cheaper, one day some rival would bid for Nokia, just for its patents ( Motorola was acquired by Google with 12 billion dollars, this is good to remind people who underestimate intellectual properties┬┤ value).
      Microsoft will bid for Nokia with higher premium if some company really bids for Nokia, because Nokia is in so close partnership with Microsoft that this also includes business strategies, business secrets and so on. Therefore, Microsoft won┬┤t let any company acquire Nokia than itself. When it comes to Microsoft, it is still the net cash king in the world, after all its debts excluded, it still has a huge net cash about 50 billion dollars.
      About Nokia┬┤s buy out: Motorola┬┤s patents were worth about 5.5 billion, if some company bids for Nokia┬┤s patents and Microsoft still does not acquire Nokia, Nokia will be sold in parts. Nokia has 5 business parts, therefore patent portfolio is only 1 out of 5. Now, you can count yourself how much are Nokia Siemens Networks, NAVTEQ, and feature-phone division worth.
      I know US is very important market, because Wall Street and US consumer trend give directions to market momentum around the world, still you can not neglect the power of BRIC and MIST these days.
      You can calculate yourself how many people living in these 8 BRIC- and MIST-countries. In these countries, in Brazil, Russia, India, China, Mexico, Indonesia and Turkey, Nokia┬┤s position and brand are still quite strong (except South-Korea, but you know it is Samsung┬┤s home-country and the smallest country among those important 8 anyway).
      Morningstar (a very big analyzing firm in investings) about Nokia:
      Share price assumption at this moment: 2.40 euro
      Best scenario (if WP8 phones go well): the stock price will go to about 7.70 euro per share)
      Worst scenario: no bankruptcy, because Nokia would be sold in parts before that.
      Estimated price for this: intellectual properties over 1 euro per share; other business parts (smartphones, featurephones, NSN) at least over 1.50 euro per share.
      And NAVTEQ┬┤s price not included (Nokia bought NAVTEQ with 5.7 billion euro). All in all, even in this case, Nokia share price would be at least over 2.50 euro, excluded NAVTEQ.
      (Nokia is listed in New York and Helsinki. November 9, Nokia in Helsinki 2.09 euro and in New York 2.65 dollar.
      If you want to buy, you can ask your own bank).

      Nokia also announced it is hiring more employees to work in Chicago (where NAVTEQ is). Who says Nokia is going bankrupt? Think twice before saying that!
      Nokia also bought Scaladon, the imaging technology firm in Sweden. Therefore, apart from NAVTEQ and NSN, Nokia is no doubt going big with PureView imaging technology. Some authors compare Nokia to Eastman-Kodak, I think it is almost the opposite.
      Eastman-Kodak was the old era and Nokia is starting the new evolution with smart-phone imaging, when consumers won┬┤t have to carry another gadget (camera) during traveling.
      One of the reasons why Nokia is one of the most defensive stocks right now during bear markets is that Nokia has been already shorted massively about 19% of its total shares (while Apple only about 0.5%, Samsung over 2%, and other telecom companies about 4% in general).
      By the way, NAVTEQ just reported it is making navigators into 4 out of 5 cars (80%).
      And I hope Nokia will license City Lens to tablet makers like Amazon, Asus, Acer etc (at the same time it can turn Google maps users into using Nokia┬┤s advanced mapping platform) soon.

      When also Nokia┬┤s Devices & Services division is profitable as well, will you ever have a chance to buy NOK stock this cheap again? The answer might be: NEVER.
      Another aspect is, when now NOK has been already shorted massively about 19% of its total shares, bears could not go any further, because the share number that is available for borrowing/renting has already hit record high.
      If bears still dare to sell, there are plenty of happy buyers out there, for example Switzerland┬┤s central bank has announced it had bought more NOK shares and has become the 5th biggest shareholder in Nokia.
      Considering now the total loss is about 17 million euros, it got much better from the 290 million (2 prior quarters each) loss.
      3.6 billion euros net cash should be enough for Nokia┬┤s transitional period before WP8 phones take off.
      Nokia is also getting more cash from convertible bonds and selling its HQ and other non-core assets.
      Nokia is a big chance and good bargain at 3 dollars, because Nokia Siemens Networks has grown so strongly and profitable that Nokia and Siemens have decided to make it independent in these couple of years. That means Nokia shareholders will have two companies┬┤ shares in their hands.This is a bonus.
      The conclusion is Nokia is for long-term and medium-term investing not for short term. Just think about this, even when Apple and Google reach 1000 dollars, that is not even doubling, but in the long term Nokia has the opportunity to triple or even more. Caleb Evans

    Any ideas why the logo is blurred out? Especially if this was deliberate product placement by Nokia.

    • nabkawe

      perhaps its a wp8 product placement , seeing how live tiles made an appearance.

      • Illumianati

        No, if you look closely, the Windows logo is blurred out too.

    *Sticks pen in eardrum, easier to do than find the mute button

    After that ordeal I could look on and LOL at 2 moments. The guy holding the 920 to his face (hope for him he has a small head) and the moment they toss the 920 across the room.

    • stylinred

      the guy with the 920 up to his head has me concerned that this phone is actually HUUUUGEEE that wouldnt make a good gift for my dad then :/ looks like a bloody tablet

      • Viipottaja

        its just that guy has a fist sized head. the 920 is only sligtly bigger than the 900 and the 900 is not that huge.

        • Harangue

          Leaning towards that as well, also the guy appears to be a dancer in the video. Those aren’t the tallest overall, they need to be a similar length to the ‘artist’ for image sake.

          • Jeettak

            I went out with some old friends from Nokia last night. One of them had a red 920. It is bloody (no pun intended) gorgeous. Silky smooth, great to hold, and it just feels lush.

            I Put it up against my N9 to check the size difference, its a little taller, wider and slimmer. I was torn between the white and red 920 but last night holding the red one has made my mind up. I’ll be pre-ordering the Red one when it becomes available.

            • Harangue

              Be sure to share some pics with MNB, since many people are torn about what color to get I’m looking at putting a post together of reallife pics, specifically those made by owners.

              • Viipottaja

                Just went to the AT&T store. I am getting an early upgrade from the L900 to L920 for $250. They didn’t have the phones out in the front yet, and only had eight black ones at the back – I saw the black one and it feels fantastic in hand… both the curved back, the curved screen.. REALLY nice! There were two other people asking about it as well – hopefully a good sign. Will tomorrow go to the Microsoft store to see if they have the other colors – if not, will just go ahead and order the yellow one. ­čśÇ

                • Harangue

                  Good man, already came across a similar comment from you over at the neighbours from AAWP.

                  One thing, if you feel like it; could you share your view on the feel between the glossy and matte colors?

                  • Viipottaja

                    Have only handled the matte black but if I get my hands on other colors tomorrow, will try to remember to come here to share impressions.

                  • Viipottaja

                    Ok, had another round of chatting with AT&T and by insisting to talk to a supervisor and referencing deals other folks have gotten managed to bring the price down furher to $99+$36 upgrade fee! WOOOT!!!

              • Jeettak

                Sure not a problem.

  • BJ

    It’s not THAT bad. Better than their previous output. And I don’t listen to pop at all, the sound production is actually pretty good. Video – that’s another matter…

  • BJ

    Having watched this video the second time – there’s a lot of things going in this video, even pure lesbian love at 2:23 among other things and lots of symbolic imagery. Regardless of product placements, you must be glad that there’s Lumia and not iPhone in this video, means there’s still hope in this world after all. I still can’t forgive Microsoft for all the bad things they’ve done to alternative OSes back in the day. It would take a lot to repay that.

    Does she still have the same writer that Katy Perry used to have before they got into a fight and split and Perry stopped having hits since?
