Uber opens car door to Windows Phone


Remember when most taxis smelled like a mixture of stale cigarettes and ancient pine air freshener? Those were dark times indeed but we’re spoiled nowadays, what with Hailo’s recent introduction of the posher Hailo+ and Hailo Exec options. And of course we have Uber’s driver-for-hire service that makes us feel a bit like Mr Big from Sex and the City.

Now Windows Phone users can download the Uber smartphone app to order a car in any of the 150 cities in the 41 countries in which the company operates.
