• Lenovo and Microsoft strengthen strategic ties across devices

        • Microsoft Corp. and Lenovo have announced a strengthening of their strategic relationship, meaning Lenovo will load Microsoft's productivity apps, including Microsoft Office, OneDrive and Skype, on select Lenovo devices that use the Android operating system.

          The expanded collaboration between Microsoft and Lenovo also includes a patent cross-licensing agreement that covers Lenovo and Motorola devices. Since Microsoft launched its IP licensing program in December 2003, it has entered into more than 1,200 licensing agreements.

          Nick Parker, Corporate Vice President OEM Division, Microsoft said, "Microsoft's thrilled that our productivity apps will be pre-installed on Lenovo's premium devices. The marriage of Microsoft's apps and Lenovo's Android-based devices will enable customers around the world to be more productive, more connected and achieve even more."

          Lenovo has said it is expecting to ship millions of the Android-based devices worldwide over the next several years.

          Christian Eigen, Leader of Corporate Alliances, Lenovo added, "our collaboration with Microsoft will create new opportunities for our customers to take advantage of some of Microsoft's most popular apps. Installing Microsoft apps and services on our devices will bring additional value to consumers around the globe."
