The new SkyDrive app is especially useful to those who already use SkyDrive, and can now access all their files and folders from anywhere they go. Through the mobile app you can access your documents, music, videos and pictures, and share them with other people. You can also manage files, create and delete folders, and more.

Understandably, the Windows Phone app is somewhat more integrated with the service. Windows Phone users can automatically upload pictures taken on the device’s camera to SkyDrive, and share files from SkyDrive through text messages, e-mails and IMs. The iPhone version is available in 32 languages, and shows that despite the work on Windows Phone, Microsoft knows where most of their users are.

If you’re a regular user of Dropbox, Box, or other services, you might like to know that SkyDrive is offering 25GB of free storage. This is compared to Dropbox who offer 2GB and Box who offer 5GB.

    Looks like the ZTE Tania Couldn’t find any other WP7 handsets that reblesmed the one on the video. Besides, HTC phones have dull designs with a frame around the frame around the screen, and this one is pretty clean-cut. Looks like something Samsung would make too.

      as much as i respect microsoft services, i doubt they would want to do anything of the sort with a google product…

      I would think they would not want anything to do with Apple either, but I guess they realized they have to cooperate with one of them.. :)

      Good question! One can hope it’s on the way. Seems like a glaring omission.
