In a corporate blog posting today, Microsoft has announced the release of the SkyDrive app for iPhone and Windows Phone 7.5.
Microsoft says that the new apps will allow users to access, manage and share files stored on their Microsoft Skydrive from their smartphone. The app will also let users upload photos or videos directly from their phone to SkyDrive.
On the Windows Phone Blog, Microsoft this week announced that it is stepping up the pace of its Windows Phone 7.5 (codenamed Mango) update around the Globe.
The company says the update success rates have been very high therefore the Windows Phone 7.5 available update is now available to 50 percent of eligible customers which should speed up the expected four week update cycle
In a note on its Zune.net website, Microsoft has announced that it will no longer be producing its Zune portable media players but will con tinue to honor the warranties of all devices for both current owners and those who buy our very last devices.
The decision is not surprising since Microsoft has not updated the Zune hardware since September 2009 when it introduced the Zune HD.
