Maxim Magazine pushes Windows Phone and all things Microsoft in new video

Ah, Maxim Magazine. We’ll leave judgment on the side for this bro magazine (can we say, ‘brozine?) but they do cater to their audience and here we’re talking about gadgets. And if it's one other thing that Maxim Magazine features, besides the female gender, it's the latest in gadgets.

In a new video that just went up on YouTube, host April Rose heads to a Microsoft-Maxim party in New York and features the results in their ‘Cool is in Session’ segment. We guess our invitation was lost in the mail, hmmph.  Anyway, the segment heavily features Windows Phone, including a brief tour of the OS, hot features and what Rose thought of it. In addition, Xbox and Windows 8 desktop were featured as well, tying in the whole Microsoft-ecosystem that we all love so much into an informative segment.

Sure, it’s obvious paid-advertising and Microsoft-Maxim synergy PR, but it’s also a solid promotion especially for those 20-something males who read Maxim.

  • Why does she look angry and constipated promoting windows?
  • I think that's just her.  April isn't that great of a spokeswoman, and comes off fake IMO.  She was certainly trying too hard.
  • She really does look constipated. Like she couldn't hold it until the vid was over.
  • Good for maxim magazine which thinks white women with blonde hair and blue eyes are the most beautiful women
  • Wait ... There not??? Oh shit IV been hypnotized this whole time :/
  • Just cuz you prefer Hispanic brunette or frizzy redheads doesn't mean you need to hate on the blondes man. Its called variety and its awesome.
  • Go cry somewhere else.
  • Its not crying or hating its called disagreeing with the standard of beauty.
  • "I reject your standard of beauty and substitute my own"
  • Its not mine either.
  • ^ tech news right?
  • Great magazine.
  • When Apollo launches (no pun initially intended) I can't help but to hope that the advertising starts slapping me in the face everywhere I turn relentlessly.
  • That's know the rest.
  • Cool I think M&M both did a great collaborative job there.
  • I love maximum mag =P
  • I loled when she said met hot chicks at the party and I said im looking at you.
  • Hopefully now Maxim would release their app on the Windows Phone Marketplace.
  • The good thing regardless blondes that I love and brunettes that I love is that now windows phone is gaining momentum which means more adaptation from users. Well done WP team
  • Indeed, it is a solid promotion. Maxim is one of the popular men's magazine in the world. To be in Windows Phone, the reputation of both is elevated. - Rich Von Alvensleben
