Friday was a very busy day for Microsoft fans, as the company announced a number of news announcements on a number of topics. Some of the most interesting though were about Windows Phone and the latest Red Stripe Promos at the Windows Store. Each of these are interesting in their own way, and should keep interests of users.
Microsoft’s preview of an upcoming Windows Phone is the first of its kind, and is set to be the companies first Windows Phone on its own, without the Lumia brand. With that, the latest Red Stripe deals include great Windows Phone and Windows Store promotions, that should save users money and get them interested in the Windows Phone platform.
Windows Phone Announcement
A press invite went out on Friday, and is scheduled for November 11. The image is shown of an orange phone, and nothing else was immediately known about the phone. This phone is set to be Microsoft’s first phone and branded phone, that will not be tied to Nokia in any way. It will make for an interesting holiday season phone for sure.
Later on Friday, word that this phone might be the upcoming Lumia 535 was leaked via China images. Some of the rumored specs on this phone include a 5-inch qHD screen, a Snapdragon 1.2 GHz 200 CPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, and dual cameras. The phone is supposed to give dual-sim capabilities as well. If this is true, its all a matter of pricing and availabilty for this lovely phone.
Red Stripe Deals
Along with the new Windows Phone news, Microsoft also rolled out its latest Red Stripe Deals. It gives users up to 50 percent of games for Windows Phones, Windows tablets and desktops. The biggest game that is being offered is Eternal Journey, and this hidden object game is very graphical, and offers users a wide range of fun. It’s only $0.99 versus the usual $4.99.
Along with Eternal Journey, other programs are on sale from Microsoft’s Windows Store. Fun titles like Atlantis: Rayman Jungle Run, Running Mate, Pango Zoo, Mini Motor Racing, AE Boxed In, Amazing Weather HD, and a few others are being highlighted. As always, these are time sensitive offers, and are only available during the week to purchase.
This new Windows Phone looks interesting if priced right. I love Eternal Journey and highly recommend it for only $0.99 in a heartbeat.
