Microsoft strikes app-loading deal with Acer, 74th of its kind

The Office pool has grown just a bit larger.

ASUS signed with Microsoft to include the latter’s suite of productivity apps. After a few bouts of fighting, so has Samsung. Acer thought it was time to do the same as it will begin pre-loading Microsoft productivity apps such as Word and Skype on its Android wares starting in the second half of the year (pictured above: the Windows 10 version of the Liquid Jade Primo smartphone).

With that announcement, Microsoft went on in a separate announcement to say that it has notched its 74th licensing deal. It now has “strategic agreements” with companies across 25 countries. We learned that Sony and LG are in the mix, too.
