Acer and Microsoft expand availability of productivity services

Acer and Microsoft are to expand their global partnership to help bring Microsoft mobile productivity services to more consumers.

From the second half of 2016, Acer will begin pre-installing Microsoft services and apps on its Android smartphone and tablet portfolio.

Customers will be able to use Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, OneDrive and Skype on selected Acer Android smartphones and tablets.

“We’re pleased that we have been able to enhance the already strong partnership that exists between Microsoft and Acer,” said Nick Psyhogeos, president of Microsoft Technology Licensing. “Mutually beneficial and collaborative agreements such as this one promote innovation and lead to better products and experiences for consumers.”

“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.”
