Nokia offers UK businesses a free 30-day trial of Lumia smartphones

Nokia is introducing a “‘#LumiaBizTrial” campaign which allows UK businesses to try out certain Nokia Lumia handsets for free over a period of 30 days.

The devices in question are the Nokia Lumia 925, 625 and 520, and the handsets will come with a personalised service pack that shows off the benefits Windows Phone can bring to the enterprise world.

A big part of those benefits is, of course, the close integration with other Microsoft business products such as Office.

Adrian Williams, Nokia’s UK director of business sales, commented: “The Nokia Lumia product range is the obvious choice for businesses looking to optimise their mobile strategy in a cost-effective way.”

“Each phone connects to employees’ SharePoint, Lync, SkyDrive, Outlook and Office already in use, so they can pick up the work they started in the office right where they left it. Boasting an eye-catching design, the Lumia range allows business users to access their data and applications wherever they are.”

Nokia notes that its B2B market share has risen from 5 per cent to 12 per cent over the past year – if only the consumer side of the market could boast such gains.

At any rate, if you want to apply for the trial and get your business a month’s worth of Lumia usage, check out the web application here. There are 200 trial packs available in all.
