Microsoft Corp. and Lenovo have announced a new joint agreement, according to which Lenovo will pre-load some of the Microsoft-created apps like Office, Skype and OneDrive. These apps will come pre-loaded on select Android powered smartphones. These productivity apps are not necessarily bad by any means, but it is worth making a note of it. Also, this expanded collaboration between both the companies includes a patent cross-licensing agreement. And this agreement covers both Lenovo and Motorola devices.

However, the company did not give any specifics as to which devices will come pre-loaded with these apps. The company stated that they expecting to sell over a million of these devices worldwide over the next several years. Nick Parker, corporate vice president, OEM Division for Microsoft stated that this collaboration will enable users around the world to be more productive, more connected and will help them achieve more. So it is no doubt that both the companies are excited about this new collaboration as it might open up other partnership opportunities as well in future.

The patent agreement is a substantial intellectual property; that plays a role in ensuring a healthy and vibrant technology ecosystem. Also, note that Microsoft ahs been very aggressive, and has entered into more than 1,200 licensing agreements. These numbers are since December 2003, when Microsoft launched its IP licensing program. We have been seeing a lot of joint collaborations lately. Recently we saw that LeEco and Coolpad also collaborated and launched a new smartphone in China called the Cool1. So this might lead to a lot of other interesting joint collaborations as well. Stay tuned for more info on this as we will update once we have more info.
