Some Samsung devices to have Microsoft services and apps pre-installed
Samsung plans on having some Microsoft services and apps pre-installed on some of its Android phones and tablets. Some of this isn't news as Samsung announced at MWC earlier this month that the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge would come with Microsoft OneNote, OneDrive and Skype out of the box. In addition, both handsets will come with an additional 100GB of free cloud storage from OneDrive.

In the first half of this year, Samsung will outfit some of its tablets with Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, OneDrive, and Skype out of the box. Businesses purchasing devices directly from Samsung's business to business sales team will have a choice to select one of three versions of Office 365 along with Samsung's KNOX security container. Office 365 allows users to access Microsoft's myriad applications like email, calendar, document reader and video-conferencing. KNOX allow users to switch from the apps used at home to a secure set of apps for work.

The partnership between the two companies flourished after both settled a lawsuit filed by Microsoft that claimed Samsung owed it for unpaid interest due from a late royalty payment related to Android patents.
