Microsoft confirms Windows with Bing for low cost devices
Washington: Microsoft has confirmed that low-cost PCs and tablets will now have Windows with Bing.
According to TechCrunch, devices that are priced under 250 dollars will be eligible, which will bring Windows 8.1's cost profile better in line with the dropping price points for the touch based hardware.
However, Microsoft is not looking for complete parity as the company is determined to grow its mobile share, the report said.
Meanwhile, the company is ready to skip Windows OEM fees on devices which are smaller than 9 inches.
Microsoft said in its blog that it may also include Office 365 in devices that run Windows with Bing.
