    Evo sighted. Peter bishop pulls one out of his pocket to call massive dynamic while speaking to Dr bishop.

    do you know how many cell phones are out right now that they could have chosen instead? 90% of the time, people go with the iphone anytime they need a phone in a scene. i think this is pretty cool news.

    its called product placement. sprint won the bid.. they get their gadget on TV. no big deal.

    Sprint runs a pretty good covert campaign to get their phones placed on TV shows. Heroes was littered with Sprint Phones.

    I really didn't get too excited about it...just thought I would share. but i find something funny about the product placement, there were no HTC logos on it. I only recognized it because the ring around the camera. at the end of the episode peter gets a text from Olivia, and the only badging on it was an oversized Sprint logo (more so then on the actual product lol). But that Sprint logo was big so the general public would see it.

    now as far as "amazing" ly bad product placement, I could have done without the close ups of the Ford Taurus logo during the chase sequence.

    Yeah, I noticed that one too. It was terrible. Almost made it look like the Taurus was the only car for the job :p

    And it couldn't keep up, I hope they weren't trying to push the SHO edition...that would be pretty sad.

    Not true, I noticed the EVO on Fringe a couple episodes ago. Seems like it is the phone of choice in "OUR" universe. The other side uses the new "HTC EARRING" model.

    Can't wait until those models come out!!!!

    I don't really understand why they do things like show the taurus logo on a show. If I'm shopping for a car I don't think "I've GOT to have the taurus they driver one on fringe!"
