Microsoft implants Wi-Fi hotspots on Forbes' magazines to promote Office 365

Apart from its "usual" features and insights, the first week edition of Forbes magazine for the month of May seem to have a special added feature. Microsoft is reportedly promoting the latest Office 365 with an added twist: turning the magazines into Wi-Fi hotspots. The May 6, 2013 issue of Forbes magazines came with a custom 4-page insert complete with a Wi-Fi router inside. Isn't that sweet?

A member of the Slickdeals forum, handle BigMacG4, first drew attention to the unusual copies of Forbes magazine. A Microsoft spokesperson later confirmed to Mashable that the first week of May edition of magazines were Wi-Fi capable. 

However, only a limited amount of copies were sent to a selected number of tech and business professionals. Those who received the special issue of the magazine with the custom 4-page insert can enjoy up to 15 days of free Wi-Fi. The router works as a Wi-Fi hotspot together with the use of T-Mobile.

The router can reportedly support up to five devices at a time satisfactorily with its Wi-Fi hotspot capability. But like other routers, the special edition Wi-Fi router needs to be charged to enjoy connection. Around three hours of free Wi-Fi can be used with each full charge.
