Initially limited release, this wonderful 100GB promo gives more reason to switch over to OneDrive if you haven’t already or just continue using it more so.

Although Nokia had tweeted that all WP8 devices would get Windows 10, there were some concerns when an official LumConv post claimed that they were aiming for most devices, indicating that some might not get it. Recently, there were news that Microsoft were pushing to get W10 on lower end devices. Today, there’s some reports that a […]
I love seeing how people personalise Lumia tiles (especially given the initial limitations of them). The promo talks about the cool parallax effect – is that still present with WP10 and background. Here’s one of the apps to achieve this effect. Cheers Alvester for the tip!
Dear MNB Readers! Does that wallpaper on the Microsoft Band look familiar to you? That isn’t a Microsoft made wallpaper…I’ll come back to what’s behind the 12:02…and to the Band. Let’s briefly talk Windows Phone. Since the launch of Windows Phone 7, critics have often spoken out against a perceived lack of customization options for Windows Phone. Depending […]
