Earlier this week, Microsoft Store started selling the Samsung Galaxy S8 & S8 Plus, and today the Razer’s new Android phone is now available at the online store. Since Windows Phone platform is no longer supported, the company’s focus is on Android and iOS – Microsoft wants to make all of its apps available across these two platforms.
Android phones are now slowly replacing the Windows Phones on the Microsoft Store as the company is reconsidering its device strategy. After the Samsung Galaxy S8, you can now get the Razer’s new Android phone from the Microsoft. This is the second Android phone that can be directly ordered from Microsoft.
Earlier this month, Razer officially announced that the customers can order the Razer Phone from the Microsoft Store in certain locations. The company is today selling the Razer Phone Special Edition with Microsoft applications and services for $699.99.
The store listing also promotes the Microsoft Launcher, available from the Google Play Store. It “gives you the ability access your calendar, documents, and recent activities in your personalized feed. You can even open photos, docs, and webpages on your Windows PC with a Microsoft account or work/school account, so you can be productive across all your devices. A single tap on a file in the Android home screen feed will trigger it to launch on a PC, allowing you to work seamlessly between your Android phone and Windows computer,” Microsoft says.
The Razer Phone can be purchased from Microsoft for $699.99, and remember it runs Google’s Android operating system. However, if customized with Microsoft services, the Razer phone could be the Microsoft Android phone you have been waiting.
