Microsoft Surface on Hawaii 5-0 “Ohuna”

When Hawaii 5-0 rebooted in 2010, I noticed the Windows Phone product placement on the show. In fact, for a while it looked like the “good guys” used Windows Phone while the “bad guys” used Android.

In 2012, Microsoft is at is again. This time it is the Microsoft Surface tablet running Windows RT that got some prime time product placement on the Nov. 19 episode titled Ohuna (full episode available for a limited time on Officer Kono Kalakaua (Grace Park) literally goes through the motions snapping the Surface’s kickstand before firing up the display.

We’ll probably see a Nokia Lumix 920 or HTC 8X before the end of the holiday season.
