Free Gadget Magazines: Do they work?

The Mobile Philippines magazine has been offering subscriptions for free in the last 8 months (at least) and I only found about it today.

I’m not really into magazines lately although I still have that 12-issue subscription from Digital Photographer. Went around Virra Mall this afternoon to get me a new kick-ass PC case (that’s for the PCLabs) when I saw copies of Mobile Philippines being given out for free.

It’s a good move I think since the focus is getting as many readers as possible and make money off print advertising. It’s pretty to sell magazines if they’re free, right? Inquirer’s Libre was a huge hit.

To those who aren’t into magazines any longer, would a free subscription change your mind and go back to reading a printed copy? In the era of Gizmodo and Engadget, could this be the future of gadget magazines?

Note: You can get a free monthly subscription by sending an email to with your contact info and home address.
