Two days ago Microsoftâ€™s upcoming Windows Phone 7 ads featuring HTC Mondrian with AT&T leaked around the Internet. Â The video was uploaded by a company which made music for that ad in Vimeo. First weÂ broke the story to Internet, and from there the videos spread like wildfire. Top technology blog sites like Engadget, TechCrunch, Cnet, Neowin, etc wrote on it. Â The videos had about 200,000 views each and generally had positive reviews.
Now YouTube has removed those videos claiming copyrights claims from Microsoft Corporation.This move obviously confirms that ads were real, but is relatively pointless, as people who haven’t seen the ads still can view it in hundreds of YouTube account and some sites like Engadget hosts the ads on their own server.
In case anyone did however missed the ads, we have conveniently embedded them below Â while we wait for the official full Windows Phone 7 ad assault 😉
