Microsoft Services Pre-Installed on an Increasing Number of Android Devices

Since Microsoft has entered the mobile phone industry, his commitment has always been twofold: on the one hand – despite the difficulties so far recorded – tried to gain a significant market share with products of Lumia, on the other hand it is committed to the development of cross-platform software solutions to maintain a leadership position created over time thanks to the diffusion of MS Office and other business-oriented applications.

Microsoft’s intention is to further strengthen the cooperation with leading manufacturers of smartphones and tablets in order to create lasting relationships over time: last year, for example, were signed 31 commercial agreements with OEMs and manufacturers for the deployment of Microsoft Services with Office, Skydrive and Skype pre-installed on tablet running Android. And now the Redmond company announces that 25 countries have turned 74 in partnerships, bringing an added impetus to the spread of Microsoft applications on Android smartphones and tablets. Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Skydrive and Skype are now pre-installed in device like LG G 2 Pad, Samsung Galaxy S6 and Sony Xperia Z4.
Even Acer has announced a partnership with Microsoft to Office, Outlook, OneNote, Skydrive and Skype will be preinstalled in a selection of Acer watch phones and tablets in the second half of 2016.
The double commitment towards hardware and software solutions from Microsoft is considered a key part of the company’s strategic policy in order to provide better user experiences and ensure a diversification in the current offer.
