Mobile operating systems
Introducing Windows Phone 8, the operating system that gives you all the information you need for both work and play in a quick glance-and-go experience. Personalize your Start screen with customizable Live Tiles and quickly access the information that’s most important to you.
Keep your eye on what’s important by putting the apps you love right on your Start screen. With over 110,000 apps to choose from, the possibilities are almost endless.
Access your contacts and social networks in one place. Create Rooms to chat and share with groups, and pin them to your Start screen so they’re only a glance or a tap away.
Select the apps and games your kids can access on your phone. Let them personalize their very own Start screen and have fun taking pictures, playing games and listening to music.
Windows Phone proactively manages your monthly data allowance by using Wi-Fi more often when you’re nearing your limit. It even helps you find free Wi-Fi hotspots.
Live Tiles let you pin apps, music, websites or even people to your Start screen and see live updates at a glance. Customize the size, layout and colour scheme of your Live Tiles to make them your own.
With a dedicated camera button, you don't even need to unlock the phone to take a picture, so you'll never miss a moment.
Instantly back up photos and Office documents in the cloud, and access them from virtually anywhere. With 7 GB of free cloud storage, your files go wherever you go.
Only Windows Phone has an Office Hub with Outlook, Office, Skype, SharePoint and other apps built in. Plus, your information is secured using BitLocker encryption.
