Microsoft to increase Hotmail storage to 5 Gb
Microsoft is soon going to increase the storage limit of there hotmail service to 5 Gb from a previous one of 2 gb. The move will not take place immediately but slowly among all the users. Currently Google is offering nearly 3 Gb but they have announced that users can increse it upto 9 Gb by paying a small account , Yahoo is offering Unlimited storage.
There are also going to be some performance enhancements in Hotmail and it is also going to become faster shortly. We will also see a new “report phishing” button in email and a chance to merge duplicate contacts in address book. An option will also be there to allow to users to go directly to inbox thus avoiding the extra advertising content.
I was a big fan of Hotmail in the older days . I opened my first email account with hotmail in around 1999 and it is still active today . But most of the time i use Gmail as i find it both fast and easy to use. Lets see if such moves can make users shift towards hotmail ? what do you guys think ?
