Microsoft Helping Hardware Partners Build Cheap Windows Devices

Windows 8.1 is the latest update for the Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system. In fact, the tech giant came up with a new update by fixing some of the errors and flaws found in the previous OS and it also marked the return of Windows Start button. Microsoft is seriously trying to innovate their Windows 8.1 devices by entering partnerships with many hardware developers. Recently, the tech giant revealed that they are going to work on a new project to produce low cost Windows 8.1 devices. This will make the Windows 8.1 devices much cheaper when compared to other devices available in the market, thereby aiming for larger sales and popularity.

Brandon LeBlanc said in a Microsoft blog that, “Microsoft was built on the foundation of partner opportunity and our goal remains mutual success for us and our partners. This means a continued commitment to helping ensure our hardware partners are able to build innovative, differentiated and competitive devices on the Windows platform. The end result is that more people—across consumer and commercial—will have access to an even broader selection of new devices with all the awesomeness that Windows 8.1 provides, and get Office too, all at a really affordable price.”

When the Windows 8.1 devices become common, then it will provide an opportunity for the developers to build many more apps. According to Brandon LeBlanc, the new low cost Windows 8.1 devices will come with a new edition of Windows OS named Windows 8.1 with Bing. He wrote that, “This new edition will be only be available preloaded on devices from our hardware partners. Some of these devices, in particular tablets, will also come with Office or a one-year subscription to Office 365”.

According to LeBlanc, the tech giant Microsoft is working very hard to make the Windows 8.1 devices more popular and to reach the maximum number of customers by entering in business with more partners. This new strategy from Microsoft help to introduce new devices with a broader range of prices. In a bid to drive more price competitiveness and device differentiation, Microsoft has began to ease their approach and with the release of the new Windows 8.1 update, the tech giant is encouraging its hardware partners to develop devices of even lower cost with high specifications.

The tech giant Microsoft has also announced that their hardware partners can get the Windows OS free for phones and tablets that have 9-inches or lower screen size. For further information regarding this, contact the Microsoft help team.
