Christmas is just around the corner and people are busy with shopping and wrapping of gifts that they intend to give out. It is certainly going to be a festive time and even Microsoft has pitched into the holiday festivities. Redmond has sent out an email, which actually comes as a rather early Christmas present. The company is offering 20GB of free SkyDrive storage to people who use Windows Phone devices.

The email invites Windows Phone owners to activate the 20GB free bonus SkyDrive storage, they have until the end of January to claim this generous gift. It goes without saying that SkyDrive has become a crucial part of Microsoft’s entire ecosystem, and offering free storage only gives people more on an incentive to start using its cloud storage service, while those who already do will no doubt be overjoyed with an additional 20GB of storage in their accounts. Microsoft has been rather generous lately, with regards to offering free SkyDrive storage. It already offers 200GB free for two years with every purchase of its new Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 tablets. The free cloud storage will be good for an entire year. So if you do own a Windows Phone, it would certainly serve your own interest to claim your free 20GB SkyDrive storage.
