Microsoft announces OneDrive, its SkyDrive replacement

The tough part about legal battles is definitely being the company that loses. If you all remember, last July Microsoft made it public that it was forced to rename its SkyDrive service after the British Sky Broadcasting Group (BSkyB) claimed the name legally. Redmond was given a couple of months to find a new name, and that time has come.

Microsoft has just announced OneDrive, which shouldn’t be confused with a new service, as it is merely the new name the company is giving to its existing SkyDrive service. The transition will take some time though, and Microsoft is not providing specific dates for this change either. All we know for now is that existing SkyDrive and SkyDrive Pro customers should not be affected by this change.

I guess the only question that’s left is if HTC will also sue Microsoft for using the “One” name, but hey, at least we know both companies are partners.
