Windows Phone Central: Three million strong and growing, thanks to you

263

As we start to come to the end of 2013, we figured we would have a little site celebration and say thanks. Just a few days ago, Windows Phone Central hit the 3 million unique visitors a month threshold.

To put that number in perspective, it was just 11 months ago when we hit 1 million uniques—that’s a healthy 200% increase in less than a year.  One-third of that is US based, while the rest, we’re proud to say, is the rest of the world...

SkyDrive on Xbox One will bring your pictures and videos to life

77

 

Whatever Microsoft ends up calling SkyDrive won’t matter to use too much. The service is easily one of our favorite cloud storage solutions, but does so much more if you’re inside the Microsoft ecosystem. From syncing your PC apps and settings across your devices on Windows 8.1 to automagically saving your Windows Phone images, SkyDrive is awesome. And it’s about to get a lot better for folks using the service on the Xbox One.

Samsung ATIV S Neo (AT&T) - Hands on and first impressions

147

We go hands on with AT&T's latest Windows Phone, the ATIV S Neo

This past weekend, AT&T released the Samsung ATIV S Neo, their first Windows Phone 8 Samsung device. Released earlier this year on Sprint, the ATIV S Neo is a version 1.1 of the original ATIV S—more slight refinements than an overhaul.

Samsung was once again not interested in promoting their device so we had to go out and buy the phone ourselves, instead of a standard review unit. The phone runs for $99 on contract or $420 off and while many Lumia fans won’t find much to gawk over, the phone is a solid entry into the Windows Phone category.

We’ll be following up with a full review in a bit, but here are our quick impressions of the latest Windows Phone 8 device for AT&T. Check out our video tour and high resolution photos after the break!
