Alcuni giorni fa vi abbiamo riportato in anteprima di come Microsoft abbia deciso di cedere il servizio di assistenza Lumia a una società terza. Oggi è stata ufficializzata questa collaborazione, annunciando anche la possibilità di estendere la vita di uno smartphone Lumia acquistato da meno di 6 mesi e di aggiungere un’assicurazione al device.
Per gli smartphone Lumia acquistati da meno di 6 mesi, B2X ha realizzato il nuovo servizio premium SMARTPROTECT. SMARTPROTECT offre ai clienti Lumia un’estensione della garanzia limitata del produttore assieme ad una assicurazione per lo smartphone. Il pacchetto premium può essere acquistato all’indirizzo http://www.b2x.com/smart-protect.
A breve verrà rilasciata anche un’app nel Windows Store per gestire il servizio di assistenza ed effettuare una diagnostica del device.
