Lenovo and Microsoft sign agreement over preloading of the latter’s apps on its smartphones
Microsoft has just entered into a fresh new deal with the management of Lenovo which would enable the latter company to now load Microsoft’s software onto the vast majority of its Android devices. The apps that this deal would cover would include those that are more popular and associated with the management of Microsoft such as the entire Office Package, OneDrive, the Skype messenger and so on.
This is not the first time that this kind of partnership would come up and we have already seen the likes of Xiaomi and Samsung go this way before. While the details of this deal is yet to be released for public consumption, we do know that deals like this means that companies like Lenovo would no longer need to pay royalties when they use apps developed by Microsoft across their smartphones.
Microsoft made mention of the stand that Lenovo’s premium devices would be pre-installed with their apps but with the word “premium”, we don’t know if they are referring to only flagships or if they are just referring to all of Lenovo’s devices as premium. Since Motorola is also a sub-brand of Lenovo, it would not be strange if the arms of this deal extends to them also.
