We are excited to be in Berlin at IFA 2015, where consumer electronics and appliance makers from around the world are sharing their latest product and technology innovations. We’re pleased to support our partners who have announced new Windows 10 devices that will be available for holiday.
At Computex in June, we shared our vision of computing in a mobile-first, cloud-first world, discussed how Windows 10 will deliver on that vision, and talked about partners bringing new Windows 10 devices to market. We were honored to host a keynote here at IFA, where we shared our excitement about Windows 10, demonstrated many of the rich experiences that it enables and showcased innovative new devices from our partners.
Already more than 75 million devices are running Windows 10, and customers in 192 countries are enjoying the new Windows 10 experiences. A number of our partners have launched innovative devices that light up new Windows experiences here at IFA.
Windows 10 PCs, tablets, phones and IoT devices running Microsoft and partner apps and services will help people be more productive in their digital work and life. Microsoft and our expanding ecosystem of device partners provide a breadth of devices and solutions to meet customers’ unique needs. Here are a few of the experiences and the devices that bring them to life.
