Samsung has announced an expansion of its partnership with Microsoft that will include pre-installing Office apps on some of Samsung's tablets in the first half of 2015. The company had already announced that the upcoming Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge would have Microsoft's OneNote, Skype and OneDrive apps pre-installed, along with offering those owners 115GB of free storage on OneDrive for two years.

Remember those recent rumors about Microsoft services coming pre-loaded on the Samsung Galaxy S6? Turns out they were true. Now the phone (and its sibling, the Galaxy S6 edge) is officially official we know that it's a thing, but a pretty limited thing. OneDrive and OneNote are preloaded, with 115GB (odd number, sure) of free storage for two years, and the hands-on our buddies at Android Central had showed Skype was also pre-loaded on the demo units.

Portable storage is forever getting smaller and higher capacity, be that portable hard drives, SD or microSD cards or even USB thumb drives. At CES, Samsung was showcasing its latest development in the space, the T1 portable SSD drive. And in something no bigger – albeit a little thicker – than a business card, you can now get 1TB of SSD storage.

Samsung may be playing second fiddle on Windows Phone these days, but they are still all in on the PC and laptop front. Last night, Samsung showed off their latest creation, the ATIV Book 9, which is a refresh of their continuing ATIV Book series (there is also a 'Pro' version).

The ATIV Book 9 is quite the looker with its all-aluminum, unibody design and its razor-thin 0.46-inch profile. The whole package weighs just 2.06 pounds, and it sports a 12.2-inch WQXGA (2560×1600) display that is a non-touch screen.

Last week, we reported how Samsung was slowly trickling out the Windows Phone 8.1 Update (GDR1) for ATIV S users. However, the rollout at the time was limited to just phones with Austrian region branding. Users in our forums detailed how you could do it yourself, however the method was complicated by the sheer amount of ATIV S versions out on the market.

Today, our unbranded UK ATIV S (I8750), without the 8.1 Preview, is finally receiving numerous OS updates and new firmware. Users in our forums are confirming the same for what looks like a wider swath of ATIV S users and more regions.

Starting about ten days ago, reports that Samsung was pushing out Windows Phone 8.1 Update for ATIV S users began circulating the 'nets. We have our own ATIV S here in the house, which is an unbranded UK release, and were not able to get any such update. Instead, we are stuck on Windows Phone 8.0 GDR3 (Build 10517; Firmware 2424.13.10.1).

As it turns out, a very select few ATIV S users are getting Windows Phone 8.1 Update (Build 14157; Firmware 2424.14.9.3), which is splendid news. The bad news is it is isolated to specific regions like Austria and maybe Hong Kong.

Samsung ATIV S devices released through carriers and most other areas are not seeing the update yet, although obviously this can change. Let me try and explain and give you the full story.

Court documents reveal that Microsoft is asking for $6.9 million in unpaid interest in its lawsuit against Samsung last year over licensing. Microsoft originally filed the suit against Samsung stating that the latter owes it a licensing royalty on each Android Galaxy phone or tablet and that the former's purchase of Nokia's devices and service division didn't violate the company's contract with Samsung.
