Rogers and Microsoft are jointly launching a few new products today, as well as some that have already been announced.
We already knew that Rogers was bringing us the Nokia Lumia 920 — exclusively — and the HTC 8X in both 8GB and 16GB variants. Then there’s the Samsung ATIV S, which we’ve yet to see in any real capacity.
Rogers is also announcing exclusive access to the ATIV Smart PC tablet, a Windows 8 tablet running Intel’s new Clover Trail CPU, 2GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, a 11.6-inch 1366×768 screen, and 8MP/2MP camera combos. The Smart PC tablet will run on the Rogers LTE network.
They’re also launching a number of new Rogers-focused apps for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8, including the ubiquitous My Account app for Windows 8 tablets; Rogers Anyplace TV Live for Windows Phone 8; and Rogers Anyplace TV on Demand for Windows 8 Tablets. Channels on demand include CityTV, TMN, CBC, W Network, Teletoon and others.
Then there’s Rogers One Number, which has become a mainstay feature on both mobile and desktop. This app is coming to both Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 platforms.
We’ll have more details for you in terms of prices and availability in the coming weeks, and stay tuned for a hands-on with some of these Windows devices.
