Samsung to team up with Microsoft on Windows 10 Internet of Things efforts

CES 2016 saw Samsung and Microsoft jointly announce some impressive looking Windows 10 products, like the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S 2-in-1 tablet. However, that partnership will also keep expanding to include the Internet of Things efforts from both companies.

Microsoft's Windows and Devices head Terry Myerson offered some general information on that new partnership in a blog post:

"Along with Samsung, we share a common vision for millions and millions of devices and Things all communicating together using open protocols and standards within inclusive ecosystems, inspiring the creativity of software developers, device manufacturers, and rising star Makers around the world. CES is a perfect event to showcase ideas that we're collectively exploring and today we were honored to showcase how Windows 10 is the ideal platform for intelligent IoT devices. Our demo on stage highlighted Windows 10 and Samsung IoT-ready appliances working together through a potential scenario of openness and collaboration, creating a future where people have more choice and ultimately can be more productive at home."
