With the device, one can now make memorable Skype video calls likewise seamlessly switch between voice and video with built-in Skype integration; access, edit and share word, Excel and PowerPoint documents and OneNote notebooks wherever one is, with the pre-installed Office suite.

The user can also save and sync photos, videos and office documents securely with 15GB of free One Drive cloud storage and connect with work and personal e-mail while on the go, with Microsoft Outlook built-in.
