It wasn’t all that long ago that we heard that Microsoft might be looking at taking a piece of Cyanogenmod, a popular operating system alternative for folks looking to customise their Android phones. That didn’t really pan out the way it was expected to but something else has turned up.

Microsoft will soon see their mobile software turning up on Cyanogen smartphones. That’s not Cyanogenmod, this is quite important, but the pre-built handsets running Cyanogen will be getting access to software like Bing, Skype, OneNote and others in the near future.

Kirt McMaster, CEO of Cyanogen Inc., said in a statement “People around the world use Cyanogen’s operating system and popular Microsoft services to engage with what matters most to them on their mobile devices. This exciting partnership with Microsoft will enable us to bring new kinds of integrated services to mobile users in markets around the world.”

First Samsung and now this? Microsoft’s got some seriously mobile plans afoot, by the look of things.
