SkyDrive, Microsoft’s “iCloud,” to be integrated in Windows Phone Mango


Sarah Perez reports on Microsoft’s iCloud competitor.

“It will offer users the ability to share photos stored on SkyDrive via email, text messaging or IM (Windows Live Messenger or Facebook IM). Users will also be able to upload videos to SkyDrive, browse documents on SkyDrive, see documents shared with them on SkyDrive and search for documents across SkyDrive. These documents include, of course, those found in the Microsoft Office suite: Excel, Word and PowerPoint.”

Microsoft May Build Its Own Windows 8 Tablet

PCWorld (US)

Ian Paul explores rumours that Microsoft will build its own tablet.

“Perhaps Microsoft’s plan is to do something similar to what Google did with the Android-based Nexus One. By building its own tablet, Microsoft can show the world what a properly envisioned Windows 8 tablet should look like. A Windows 8 tablet free of manufacturer crapware and with killer specs that would make any iPad 2 owner blush.”

Samsung stays mum over Nokia bid rumors


Rachel King reports on the rumoured acquisition.

“…one has to ask: does Samsung need Nokia? It’s hard to see why. Samsung already develops its own smartphones and tablets. Nokia abandoned Symbian, so it’s not like Samsung would be buying it for an operating system when it already has a relationship in place with Google and its Android OS.”
