Nokia offering extra 20GB of SkyDrive space in select Asia Pacific markets with the purchase of a Lumia
For our readers in the Philippines, Indonesia or Hong Kong, Nokia is adding an incentive to make the switch to Windows Phone. If you buy a Lumia smartphone by February 7, Nokia will send you a redemption code to get 20GB of extra SkyDrive storage on top of the complimentary 7GB everyone receives.

The 20GB of extra is good for one year and there is a process to follow to receive the redemption code, but it is in addition to other freebies that have been doled out by Microsoft, so if you are on your game, you could be working with more than 50GB of free storage.

The majority of Nokia’s current line-up is eligible to take advantage of the promotion:

To get a redemption code, Nokia outlined three simple steps to follow. First, you obviously have to buy a Nokia Lumia smartphone (see aforementioned list) by February 7th. Second, wait four days after you have made the switch and register (see Nokia source links below). Third, register by midnight of February 15th and Nokia sends you the redemption code which is valid until February 28th.

This is not the first time we have seen Microsoft of Nokia give away goodies to entice people to buy their products and use their services. As far as cloud based solutions go, SkyDrive does the job just fine. Which Lumia are you going to pick up?

I'm running low on OneDrive storage myself...
Having pictures automatically load to your OneDrive account from your Lumia will burn through 25gb of storage quick.. Especially if you have a 1020, or like me a 1520 set to auto upload in high quality.....
I only have about 5600 pictures on my OneDrive.. That kinda sux, and I'm not buying more space.. No❕

Why do you feel so compelled to post a comment on every single WP/Nokia article? We get that you are a fan. That's fine. There is absolutely no need to post so frequently just to prove it.

Especially when it is just an 'ok' mobile OS...

You do realize that cloud storage usage just makes it that much easier for a gov't to get your stuff, without any due process, thanks to the Patriot Act....matter of fact, if you watched the Snowden interview, you realize that all countries involved will have that same access to confiscate such cloud storage....

You are right g2a5b0e.

But I really do respect rodneyej1 for standing his ground in front of all ios/ Android users, maybe he sees something in the windows phone 8 experience.

I've bought a Lumia 920, the feeling of the device is amazing, very tough and well-built, the os also is kinda nice, but the lack of voip apps made it nearl impossible to talk to my family over the internet, o I sold it and went back to the dear all-trusty Android.

As someone who used to use windows phones, and now Android - the one common thing both OSes have is the option I have to mod my phone. With these new Windows phones, which have a few lacking features, there is not much for a guy like me to mod...maybe in 2015, I will try these new Windows phones....

+1 for you,
I agree with you, maybe I'll give Lumia line another try when I feel that the windows phone store has matured, and more options are available in the OS.
Till then, Android it is.
