Microsoft has been working with a number of smartphone makers to bring the apps to devices and now the company has announced a new partnership with Acer.
The partnership with Acer will see Microsoft’s range of apps pre-installed on the company’s smartphones and tablets.
“We’re excited to partner with Microsoft to provide enhanced mobile productivity to our products,” said ST Liew, president of Acer Smart Products Business Group. “By integrating the Microsoft software suite, Acer customers will enjoy productivity on-the-go along with the familiar computing experience on their smartphones and tablets.”
Nick Psyhogeos, president of Microsoft Technology Licensing, said, “We’re pleased that we have been able to enhance the already strong partnership that exists between Microsoft and Acer. Mutually beneficial and collaborative agreements such as this one promote innovation and lead to better products and experiences for consumers.”
The Microsoft Apps that will come pre-installed on the devices will include Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, OneNote, Skype and OneDrive.
We can expect to see some new smartphones and tablets from Acer at Mobile World Congress later this month.
