Windows Phone and Windows 8 billboards...

Meet new Windows Phone billboard
With Microsoft, Samsung, Apple and more technology and telecommunications companies spending oodles of advertising dollars in this run up to Christmas, it's hard not to feel overloaded with information and have a complete technological meltdown deciding what's the best smartphone, tablet or computer for you.

However at least one little mystery is solved. Daily Billboard recently criticized Microsoft's Surface tablet billboards for being a tad bland and underwhelming with their design choice, but maybe these creatives for the new Windows Phone and Windows 8 are the reason why.

Microsoft may still unimaginatively rely too much on product shots, but this is clearly where all the vibrant background colour went and these ads certainly do pop out from the skies around L.A.

These bold billboards for Windows 8 were spied along the Sunset Strip on November 22, 2012.
