Nokia’s latest promotional campaign targets the business-end of its potential user base in the UK. In true Microsoft fashion, the company wants to give 200 UK businesses a free 28-day trial of its signature Lumia models from three price ranges. The point is to demonstrate how smoothly they integrate within a Windows-based working environment.
Indeed, Windows Phone’s common traits with its Microsoft software relatives, such as SharePoint, SkyDrive, Outlook, and Office, would allow for a quick switch. This does sound like a compelling proposition for companies, but Nokia expects participants to be okay with “any quotes, survey information, and data” gained from their participation eventually being used “for promotional purposes”. While this information won’t be sold to 3rd parties, it “may be distributed to relevant organizations” as Nokia sees fit.
Contradictions aside, Nokia’s trial pack includes three trial devices which are the Lumia 520, Lumia 625, and Lumia 925. Each phone will come complete with its corresponding box and charger. The trial pack will also include videos, a SIM card cutter, three SIM Card adapter trays, three business guides, and a personalized letter. These will all be sealed inside a Presentation box, that will be securely packaged inside a delivery box.
