standard Microsoft Makes Windows and WP License Free for OEM Devices Under 9″


Previously we heard rumors that Microsoft might be slashing the pricing of its licensing fees for Windows RT or WP to compete against Android. However today at Build Microsoft took us all by surprise by announcing that Windows AND Windows Phone will be completely cost free for OEM’s on any device under 9″, be it phone or tablet. This strengthens Microsoft’s commitment to both these platforms, and helps entice more and more manufacturers to adopt them (especially WP), because with the incoming influx of cheaper smaller devices Microsoft will try to make up that profit on the services end (Onedrive, skype etc.) which can only mean better services to the end users. Yay.
