Microsoft enters partnership with Deutsche Telekom to push devices and services

Microsoft and Deutsche Telekom have entered an agreement to push Microsoft's Lumia devices, as well as the company's online services like Office 365. The new marketing push will appear across Europe, in all of Deutsche Telekom's markets, including Austria, Germany, Greece, and Poland.

Deutsche Telekom's Managing Director Niek Jan van Damme had this to say of the agreement:

"Our successful cooperation with Microsoft which we continue to develop for years now, strengthens the position of Deutsche Telekom as the leading provider for connected life. Together with Microsoft's broad portfolio of devices, services and platforms, we reach customers who wish to switch their phone quickly and easily between professional and private use. Thus, we are able to provide a seamless user experience with benefits for both our private and our business customers."

Additionally Deutsche Telekom will offer the recently-announced Lumia 640, and the 640 will be a part of this campaign in certain countries. In addition to phones and services, this new agreement will also include new Microsoft products over time, including Windows 10, for which Deutsche Telekom will be a launch partner.
