Those of you who read about our GetSafeOnline roadtrip (back in November 2005) may recall that we toured the country (actually England & Scotland) in ten branded Minis. We visited twelve Cities in ten days with the aim of spreading the word to the British public about how to stay safe online. We met 60,000 people! Plans are afoot for further GetSafeOnline activities.
Of course we hired the Minis from an events company and paid to brand them. It was quite funny though how many of us (in particular Lucy, Georgina and I) became rather attached to "our" Minis. So our Mini's weren't really stolen :-)
The Windows Mobile team recently hired some Minis for PR activities and branded them as you can see above.
The Microsoft UK Partner Technical Specialist team have something interesting to show you - online. Take a look at this! It's Microsoft UK's Partner Technical Specialist Television (PTS-TV).
One of the videos shows the Microsoft Mobile branded Minis in action. Another looks at Information Security.
The Microsoft Mini's are still not quite as good as the originals in "The Italian Job" though ;-)
