Windows 8 is here, and it’s the newest operating system on the fastest wireless network technology on the planet with LTE. More good news? Rogers is its preferred Canadian partner and is committed to delivering the best Windows 8 experience possible to customers with the largest selection of Windows 8 devices in Canada.
But let’s take a step back: Why should you be excited about this new operating system in the first place? Short answer: because it’s awesome. Windows 8 offers a fast, more personal way to work and play on PCs, tablets, phones or consoles, from just about anywhere. Here’s more on some of the main features of Windows 8.
- Windows superphones feature Live Tiles, designed to keep you closer to the people and things that matter most. Live Tiles are fully customizable, so the info, people and apps you care about in one place, ready to be tapped. Information is updated in real-time.
- Windows 8 allows for integration across all your Windows 8 devices using SkyDrive. Whether you’re on a W8 PC, smartphone or tablet, you’ll see, feel and hear consistency among all devices. From the moment you sign in to any of your devices, all your settings and apps will be accessible and automatically synched between devices.
- Accessible by the Start screen, the People app pulls up your contacts and for each one shows phone numbers, email and street addresses, plus social networking info – everything from tweets to Facebook wall posts. And each of your contacts gets their own individual page.
- W8 ships with a free anti-malware solution, so you’ll be protected from the get-go, as well as with Internet Explorer 10, the first browser to feature a “Do not track” privacy option turned on by default.
In the coming days, we’ll will bring you a complete list of Windows 8 devices that will be available soon to Rogers customers, plus details on Rogers apps optimized for the W8 experience.
