Carriers promoting Windows tablet and phone combo for business


It appears Microsoft is working with carriers to push their phones and tablets into the business environment.

Both O2 and Vodafone in the UK are offering Windows 8 tablets and Windows Phone handsets bundled with Office 365 for around £40 per month, which sounds like a relatively reasonable offer.

O2 is offering an Asus Vivo Tab Smart (x86) Black (4G-enabled), a Nokia Lumia 625 Black (4G-enabled), Microsoft Office 365 Small Business Premium (Single User License) and  unlimited calls and texts plus 1GB data (4G) on a 24 month contract, all for £41.77.

Vodafone is also offering a Nokia Lumina 625 with unlimited UK calls and text messages and 5 GB of data, a Microsoft Microsoft Surface 2 10.6” Windows 8.1 RT Tablet with 32Gb of storage, a licence for Microsoft Office 365 for £40.60 on a 24 month contract.

For a small business which will be able to write of much of the expense from their taxes, the deal appears pretty good, though I suspect a higher-end Windows Phone may be more attractive to a decision maker.
