Microsoft Releases Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8

Microsoft has made its latest big play to try and stay relevant and ahead of the curve in the modern web era by releasing Windows 8.

It certainly didn’t have the same amount of buzz about it as an Apple launch but on closer investigation the Windows Phone 8 has some pretty cool features such as:

  • Skype deeply integrated into the phone so that you can receive chat notifications and skype calls even when you don’t have the app open.
  • Windows Phone Pandora will offer one year of cost-free, advertising-free music. This feature won’t be available until early 2013.
  • Kids Corner – a section of the device that has all the kid’s games in it so that they are not messing with the rest of your phone.
  • Skydrive Integration so that your cloud based files are with you no matter which Windows 8 device you are on, including your phone.
