Samsung to start adding Microsoft services to their phones and tablets.
Samsung has announced that it will be pre-installing Microsoft PowerPoint, Word, Excel and Skype on some of its Android based tablets. Samsung has yet to announce which models will be pre-installed, but these models will also include OneNote and OneDrive as well.
Microsoft products and services expanding to Samsung products reinforces the adopted stance from Microsoft: “Mobile-First, Cloud-First.”
The new flagship Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge models will come with a number of tools, including the aforementioned Microsoft’s OneNote, OneDrive and Skype. As an added bonus, both phones will come with a 100 GB of OneDrive cloud storage, free for two years from OneDrive.
Samsung has said it will offer Office 365 services on both their smart phones and tablets to businesses when bundled with their Samsung Knox security service. Samsung is going to offer three versions of Office 365: Business, Business Premium and Enterprise.
Peggy Johnson, Executive Vice President of Business Development at Microsoft, says the new partnership with Samsung shows an attempt to “bring the best of Microsoft’s productivity services to everyone, on every device — so people can be productive wherever, however and whenever they want.”
