Microsoft Office apps to be pre-installed on select Samsung Android tablets
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.
Now Samsung is extending that pre-installation partnership to include Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, OneDrive, and Skype on "select Samsung Android tablets". Specific tablet models were not announced.
Those pre-installation deals are for consumers, but businesses can also benefit from the new Samsung-Microsoft agreements. Samsung said:
The new partnerships were announced after Microsoft and Samsung settled an ongoing legal dispute in early February over patent royalty payments.
