With Microsoft firmly out of the smart phone hardware game, it’s been free to ‘trojan horse’ and promote itself on to any partner devices it deems valuable and today, that partner happens to be Samsung.
Over the past few Galaxy releases, Microsoft has found a cozy and highly successful smart phone line to peddle its smart phone ware such as a new launcher, pre loaded software and services and digital assistants, as an almost native Microsoft experience on a smart phone. With that said, it’s no wonder it’s found a new way to help promote its partner’s latest flagship.
As millions of US residents make their way to their prefered carrier of choice over the weekend to upgrade, trade-in or replace their aging Galaxy device, they’ll be met latest and greatest from Samsung in its Galaxy S10 line up of phones.
Fortunately, Windows 10 users have an even shorter route to getting their next Galaxy phone as Microsoft and Samsung have seemingly partnered to put the phone in the Microsoft Store and users can purchase right from their devices.
Heading to the Microsoft Store and searching “Samsung Galaxy” should bring this page up for many. As Microsoft doesn’t offer a smartphone of their own, the categorization of the Galaxy S10 line up isn’t explicitly highlighted anywhere in the Store, however, when searched, a slew of Galaxy devices and accessories such as the new Watch Active, Galaxy Buds, and cases surface.
For anyone interested in getting the new Galaxy S10, the Microsoft Store is yet another convenient place to grab Samsung’s latest flagship.Further reading: Microsoft, Microsoft Store, smartphone, Windows 10
