A couple days ago we posted an image of a billboard of the unreleased and unannounced Lumia 928 claiming to be the lowlight king, however some people thought the image was a fake or a photoshop. Well the guy who took the photo “AtomAstro” popped in at the comments shared an unzoomed image and explained how and were he saw this billboard (plus the photo was taken with an 808!):
Hey – it’s my photo and it’s legit. Took it on my way home from work – in North Oakland, CA. Took it using my 808 zoomed in on the billboard. A few days later, the billboard was back to being an HTC ad that says “Meet Jessica – multitasking mom.”
North Oakland, CA
So it’s safe to say this billboard is pretty real, my guess would be that Microsoft have rented out the advertising space for a period of time, then the Lumia 928 launch got delayed for some reason or the other; and MSFT forgot to tell the guys not to put up the advert, then once they saw it plastered all over the internet has an HTC ad put in its place.
