Nokia giving free bus rides in Las Vegas at CES 2012

CES 2012 is getting ready to start in Las Vegas and as always the city is going to be filled with lots of promotions and ads for the tech companies that are exhibiting at the Las Vegas Convention Center and other locations. Today, Nokia is giving people who are flying in to Las Vega's airport a nice freebie while also promoting the heck out of their Windows Phone-based Lumia smartphones.

Microsoft's Ben Lower, who works on the Microsoft Phone time, posted a Twitter message on Saturday announcing that Nokia is offering free rides from the airport to the Aria, Venetian, and Bellagio hotels on the Strip in a double decker bus. As you can see from the image, the people who decorated the bus know where they are located with the phrase "Go Topless in Vegas." In any case, people going to those hotels have a nice way to avoid paying for cab fare thanks to Nokia.

Lower also said that Nokia is giving free demos of their Lumia smartphones to the people who get the free bus rides. He doesn't say which phone they are showing off. The first Nokia Lumia phone to be released in the US, the Lumia 710, will be launched via T-Mobile later this coming week. Nokia is expected to officially reveal the Lumia 900 at their CES 2012 press event.
