Nokia offering 20GB free SkyDrive storage with Lumia smartphones


Nokia is now offering 20GB of extra SkyDrive storage free for a year, with every new Nokia Lumia smartphone. This free offer is valid in Philippines, Indonesia and Hong Kong on purchases of Lumia 520, Lumia 625, Lumia 925, Lumia 1020, Lumia 1320 and Lumia 1520.

According to the new offer customers buying Lumia device from January 10 to February 7, 2014, will have to register online on Nokia’s claim page, after 4 days from the date of purchase. Registrations will be open till midnight of February 15, 2014.

Nokia will send a redemption code along with instructions to get extra 20GB Skydrive storage for free, after verifying their registration. Customers will have to redeem the free 20GB SkyDrive storage before 28 February 2014. The extra 20 GB of SkyDrive space will start on the day of redemption and will last for one year.

This 20GB of extra space tops the 7GB that every customer receives on purchase of Lumia device, making it a total of 27GB SkyDrive space. This deal goes along with the Microsoft’s deal of extra 20GB to celebrate the rebranding of SkyDrive to OneDrive.

It seems like Microsoft and Nokia are adding an incentives for their loyal customers. Earlier last month, Microsoft was also offering customers 20GB free SkyDrive space with Lumia purchases. The company is offering those who buy a Surface 2 or Surface 2 Pro an additional 200GB of extra SkyDrive storage for two years for free.

    Windows live – through skydrive used to offer 25GB of storage space during the first few months. Suddenly it changed the storage capacity to 7GB free and started to sell the rest of it for premiums. So, please forgive me when I don’t get excited with the news that with every lumia 20GB free storage for a year! When it was offered as standard storage capacity with Skydrive!

    When tech giants like Microsoft make moves to draw in cloud customers by offering free storage, it really hurts companies like Dropbox and Box because while they’re relying solely on the cloud to make revenue, Microsoft can obviously make revenue in many other markets and can afford to give away free GB. With Nokia sales booming, I think this move can be good for Microsoft in both markets.
