Windows Phone 8
Windows Phone 8 carries Microsoft’s revolutionary software forward into the 21st century. This latest iteration screams innovation and instantly lets you get closer to the people, places and things you care about.
Bursting with first class features like HERE maps, every day could be a new experience of discovering and socialising. With Windows Phone 8 at your fingertips, you’ll always be just a tap away from the things that really matter.
From the moment you unlock one of the many Windows Phones on offer, it’s clear that the software is in a league of its own. Only Windows Phone lets you pin the things you love to the homescreen, and with the customisable Live Tiles updating in real time, you’ll always be in the know.
And, with more than 175,000 apps in the Windows Phone Store, you can download and pin until your heart’s content.
With the People Hub you can launch conversations and find contacts without fumbling with multiple apps. It also grants you immediate access to Rooms – an intimate space where you can share notes and media with friends and family.

Once set up, you’ll never have to worry about losing that important document again because, even if your phone goes missing, it’s all automatically backed up and you can access it from elsewhere. No dramas.
