We heard some time back that Samsung and Microsoft were getting pally, by having Microsoft’s apps pre-installed on various Samsung mobile devices. Turns out, it doesn’t really end there. Originally Samsung announced that Microsoft’s apps would be appearing on the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge but they’re going a bit further than that.
Microsoft has revealed that Samsung “…is planning to pre-install Microsoft services and apps on its portfolio of Android devices and will deliver secured mobile productivity for businesses through a new Microsoft Office 365 and Samsung KNOX Business Pack.”
More Samsung devices will be arriving with Office 365 as well as specific components from the service installed on “…select Samsung Android tablets” throughout the first half of 2015. Whether this is the start of something a bit more permanent remains to be seen but we certainly hope so. Samsung and Microsoft seem like a match made in tech heaven.
