It’s not easy to get your ad noticed these days, but packing in a T-Mobile hotspot, complete with 15 days of complimentary access sure doesn’t hurt. Select US editions of Forbes are arriving on door steps today with built in routers, and its all part of a marketing campaign by Microsoft to draw attention to Office 365.
The packed in routers will serve up to five devices at once, and Engadget reports the battery life is around 3 hours per charge. We have no idea if its possible to renew the hotspot subscription once the 15 day trial period expires, but they certainly got our attention.
Considering how well Microsoft Office works offline compared to Google Doc’s, we are a bit surprised to see Redmond taking this approach. On the other hand if free press was the only goal here, then mission accomplished.
