Microsoft has set up ‘Free Time Machines’ in three selected locations across the United States to promote the new Windows Phone 7-based smartphone Nokia Lumia 900. As the name indicates, the machines will not send you forward or back in history. Instead, Microsoft claims that the ‘machines’ will save you time — as will the company’s latest smartphone, the Nokia Lumia 900. The ‘Free Time Machines’ will be set up in New York, San Francisco, and Chicago.
The ‘Free Time Machines’ will be essentially giveaways, which include free meals, access to personal shoppers, grocery deliveries, cleaning, and dog-walking services. The ‘Free Time Machines’ will also include on-site personal caretakers that will handle tasks like waiting in line for a burger. The promotion is all part of the core Microsoft strategy centered on the Windows Phone as an easy-to-use and efficient smartphone for personal tasks.
Microsoft has set up a website offering similar promotions for those consumers who are not the residents of the above-mentioned three cities of the U.S.
