Jessica Alba Endorses Windows Phone 8 Over iPhone 5 (Images)

October 29, 2012

American actress Jessica Alba graced the stage during the Windows Phone 8 launch event today to offer her experience with Microsoft’s maturing mobile OS. The beautiful 31-year old celebrity is also a mother of two, so the focus of her appearance was on the new Kid’s Corner feature in Windows Phone 8, which essentially allows children to use their parents’ smartphones in a special mode that prevents them from creating too much chaos. She also noted that her phone comes in handy when it comes to her new business, The Honest Company, which sells toxin-free household goods, diapers, and body care products at an affordable price.

Alba had initial concerns before making the jump from iPhone to Windows Phone due to her iTunes music, but Joe Belfiore eased those fears by previously showing her how easy it was to transfer her entire library. Now, she’s a content Windows Phone user and it sounds like she’ll be skipping the iPhone 5 this year. No word on whether she’s ever tried any Android-powered smartphones, though I’m sure Google would be willing to give her a new LG Nexus 4 to test out. You can check out some more images of Alba at the keynote below.

As for new Windows Phones, consumers in the U.S. can expect to see devices from HTC, Samsung and Nokia this fall and holiday season. Verizon Wireless has now fully adopted the platform by announcing the HTC Windows Phone 8X, Nokia Lumia 822 and Samsung ATIV Odyssey. AT&T will offer the Nokia Lumia 920, the Lumia 820 and HTC Windows Phone 8X. Similarly, T-Mobile has its sights on the Nokia Lumia 810 and HTC Windows Phone 8X. Sprint, unfortunately, decided to sit this one out, again.
