A Newbies Guide to Windows 8 Phone
If you’ve been paying attention to the mobile phone world lately, there are two names that will likely jump to the front of your mind: Apple and Android. While these two companies get the lion’s share of the publicity (and a proportionately large number of device sales), both of them were actually very late to the party. Microsoft, it turns out, practically invented the smart phone. Back in the pre-iPhone days, Windows was arguably the biggest player in the nascent PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) market – helping the savviest and most forward-thinking businessmen get their work done digitally. By contrast, Apple was still trying to peddle the universally maligned Newton Message Pad.
Whether you’ve been a loyal Windows Phone user for years or you’re just now growing tired of the same-old-same-old world of iOS or Android, this guide will help to make sure that you have all of the tools you need to make Windows Phone 8 your new favorite. We’ll take you through Live Tiles, SkyDrive, Multitasking, Kids Corner, and a lot more – everything you’ll need to make the most of your Lumia 920, HTC 8X, Samsung ATIV S, or any other Windows Phone 8 Device on the market.
