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.
