If you're a lucky owner of a Windows Phone or have a giftee in mind who would love some extra storage space, it's about to be one happy holiday! Microsoft is offering extra SkyDrive storage for free in an email announcement sent to all Windows Phone users. That's 20 GB of free storage up for grabs (active for a year) so all told, 27 GB of storage simply or being a Windows Phone user!
Don't accuse Asus of playing favorites. As you know, Asus builds Google's Nexus 7 tablet and also recently announced a low-cost Android slate of its own (the $149 MeMO Pad), but none of that means it's interested in only dealing with Android devices in the mobile space. On the contrary, the Taiwanese PC maker is reportedly trying to hammer out a licensing deal with Microsoft to start selling Windows Phone 8 devices.
