Microsoft partners with Sony to bring Office apps to Xperia Z4 Tablet

by XB on 26th May 2015

in Applications, Sony Tablet, Xperia Z4 and Z3+ series


Office MobileMicrosoft has announced that it has reached strategic agreements with a number of global partners to make Microsoft’s productivity applications and services available on their Android tablets. This includes Sony, where Microsoft confirmed that the upcoming Xperia Z4 Tablet will arrive with a number of apps pre-installed including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, OneDrive and Skype. Some may see this as bloatware, but given that some will use the tablet for productivity purposes (especially if using with the Bluetooth Keyboard BKB50), we’re not sure too many will mind.

Thanks difwwh!

    Microsoft been clever yet pushy these days!!

  • GigaSPX

    Smart, this would bring real productivity rep to how well the Xperia Z4 tablet will sell with Microsoft backing it up. I wonder if there’s real customization to it other than just the apps you could get from the play store.

  • Abdul Ghani

    there was one guy (timel) saying xperia tablet sux no support for apps and ipad is the best lol what a joker

  • Chee Keong Chan

    Cool. I might get this to replace my aging laptop then

  • kaostheory

    Hope they look good and work properly with the keyboard!

    That korean whore will say anything to discredit Sony. And don’t ever believe that he is a apple fan. He is Samsung’s paid bitch, he is only using apple name just so that people here don’t just attack his beloved samsung. He is papashit from phonearena.

  • Shaktimaan

    That’s great, I hope they also end up making windows phone 10 devices….It’d be awesome

  • Timel

    I want more please, l love your story, it sounds like I’m a main character of a detective fiction.

  • Timel

    I love android phones, but android tablets suck, until this day, Apple iPads still the best tablet anyway.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    This is going to be useful for me atleast, cant wait for the z4 tablet to be released in Sweden ;D

  • Apollo89

    Android tablets can do so much more than iPads. Just face it, iOS is crippled software and most ‘new’ features of the last couple of iOS versions have been copied from Android. There was a time when iOS was really innovative, but that’s quite a few years ago.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Who the fuck wants a tablet with shitty 4:3 ratio? And a tablet with a booooring and so simple ui that even my grandpa will fall asleep when using it….. Besides android do have a lot of tablet optimized apps today, at least for all the apps I have tried out.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Exactly, glad someone more have came up with the same thought :)

  • Timel

    Who the fuck want a tablet with 4:3 ratio? Um.. I don’t know who but there have millions of people that want and using Apple iPads.

    Oh! And 4:3 ratio is very good for reading.

  • Timel

    “Android tablets can do so much more than iPads. Just face it”

    Like what?

    “iOS is crippled software and most ‘new’ features of the last couple of iOS versions have been copied from Android. There was a time when iOS was really innovative, but that’s quite a few years ago”

    Android used to copied many things from iOS as well.

    Want to read? Use your fuckin phone, given that text size is same (you can see less text though but still same size )

  • Azar

    Remember when iOS used to innovative?
    Pepperidge farm remembers…
    Lol

  • Timel

    I will pity Sony fanboys everytime when I see they try so hard to protect android OS

    Sony fanboys have to protect and defend Android OS because their Sony has no idea to make its own OS, Sony has to use Android OS with its shitty hardwares and because of that Sony fanboys must become Android fanboys as well LOL

  • Svnjay

    So are you papasmurf?

  • Svnjay

    Sony also does their own camera sensors while Apple can’t.

  • Svnjay

    You know what they say, ignorance is bliss.

  • Svnjay

    You really believe that Sony doesn’t know how to make their own OS? What were they doing before Android? What did they do on the PS4, PS3, PS Vita and just about every Playstation?

  • Timel

    Console’s OS????? LOL
    Sony is a toy expertise.

    P.s. I actually love Vita OS

  • Timel

    But Apple can create the very great camera’s software while Sony can’t

    And Apple bought Linx now, watch out Sony!

  • Svnjay

    Your misinformed and/or trolling. Orbis OS for the PS4, OS X and iOS are forks of Free BSD so they all started out as the same and many of the underlying code is the same.

    Also, Apple can’t make their own OS either because they needed to fork Free BSD.

  • Svnjay

    Lol, what can Linx do?

  • Timel

    C’mon man I know what is Orbis OS
    I know that Cell OS, Orbis OS even Vita OS they’re FreeBSD based.

  • Svnjay

    Just like OS X and iOS so Apple can’t make a full OS either then.

  • Timel

    look like you got something wrong
    and your logic is so stupid.

  • Svnjay

    Likewise for you.

  • Apollo89

    Apple doesn’t produce any hardware part. They just buy a bunch of cheap, old parts, put them together and install their crippled software (which is designed especially to make you buy everything from Apple by using proprietary standards instead of open standards and making it incompatible with other brands and services). Then they put it for sale for an extortionate price and thanks to their clever marketing strategy (I have to give them credit for that), the herd animals of our society are waiting in lines to empty their wallets.

  • Svnjay

    This is precisely what they do but consumers don’t care because it has a shiny Apple logo.

  • Timel

    Apple just don’t have their own plant but Apple have participated in the all stages of production

  • Gadget Lover

    ^^ this.

    LOL. Papashit really is desperate. He has no life. He is nothing but a sad pathetic troll.

  • Gadget Lover

    Oh, you don’t need his confirmation. He is papasmurf. Its so obvious.

  • Svnjay

    How do you guys know that? Why doesn’t he troll with his normal Disqus account?

  • Gadget Lover

    I know that fatass troll from phonearena for more than 2 years. I regularly visit phonearena. I know they way he trolls Sony. If you were a long time regular visitor of phonearena then you would also know. And its not only me other people who regularly visit phonearena for a long time will also say the same thing.

  • Timel

    No, I’m not
    I’m clumsy smurft LOL

  • Jecht_Sin

    Yeah, cheap parts. You must have got confused with the PCs self built by the PC gamers. Same for the software. OS X being Unix kicks Windows in the balls for breakfast. Oh, and iOS at least doesn’t lag. I buy Android only because it’s much cheaper. Otherwise forget this junk.

  • Mac

    Now we’re all waiting for Sony/Microsoft Playbox5 for next gen gaming.

  • Apollo89

    Cheap parts indeed, just compare the hardware specs of an iPhone with an Android smartphone. Oh, and it’s not because OS X uses a Unix-derived core, that it’s better than Windows by definition (on the contrary: http://www.gfi.com/blog/most-vulnerable-operating-systems-and-applications-in-2014/). My high-end Android phone and tablet don’t lag either. Probably you’re one of those people who buy a low-budget or mid-range Android device and then complain that it lags compared to a $700+ iPhone.

  • Naail Zahid

    Doesn’t lag? I have an iPhone 6 and it lags like hell after the recent update.

  • Abdul Ghani

    apple has no hardware designed by them not even fingerprint scanner because apple only pays too all vendors only body is from them i guess mother board is from foxconn

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    U sound like a punch line of a poor joke.

  • Abdul Ghani

    sony camera samsung processor and ram foxconn mother board finger print some other company design from china company maybe battery from them thats why it sux so basically apple never designed a hardware u can praise it and pay 1000s$ for and be forever alone

  • Abdul Ghani

    in the end guys he cant change the fact is xperia z4 tablet super fast processing more ram expandable memory bigger battery life best screen ultra durable with keyboard support he just wants to troll thats it or maybe i was right android raped his mom he was born then apple & samsung (step father&mother ) adopted him now he found xperia blog to show is anger

  • Jaouad

    Am still hesitating whether to purchase a Z4 tablet (with keyboard) or just get a regular more powerful laptop. Already have a good but 3y old laptop from which the battery died. Portability is high on the radar though but the price of the Z4 is high already.

    If it’s the full office experience (of those apps) than I think my decision is settled though

  • Timel

    You look like another brainless fanboy.

  • Dj.A.K30

    xperiablog====== —->SEE INFO< <<<< >

  • Timel

    You should know how much stupid you are

    I’m sure that you much older than me but you look so dumb

    Lucky with your papasmurf, Mr. know it all.

  • Timel

    Android will never be as smooth as iOS
    Android will never be as smooth as Windows 10

  • Emil Oskarsson

    I always use 16:9 because its what I’m used to on both my phone tablet and PC, honestly I don’t think 4:3 is good for anything on a tablet ….

  • Timel

    That’s so funny to see Sony fanboys try so hard to protect Android OS of course they must protect and defend Android OS because Sony has no idea to make its own OS, because Sony has to use Android OS with the shitty beautiful hardwares(Xperia’s hardware) and because of that Sony fanboys must become Android fanboys implicitly LOL

  • Gadget Lover

    Still I’m better than you whore. Your entire family is a whore. So its no wonder you join the whore business. Keep sucking samsung dick Papawhore.

  • Timel

    Don’t say about your mother like that

  • Gadget Lover

    Keep sucking samsung dick, you cheap whore. Try to convince your father to join your work. I’m sure being a pimp is not enough for him. Maybe if he sucks Shin’s well enough dick you will able to eat some decent food afterall.

  • Timel

    You saw your mom did something like that with Samsung’s costumers?

    C’mon
    Don’t say about your mom like that

    Whatever I got you, you may have an inferiority complex about your mom is a whore that’s why you always said something like that…

  • Gadget Lover

    Keep sucking samsung dick papawhore.

  • Jovit Magdaong

    So does this one includes office 360 account? Because if no then it’s just a bloat as this office apps are available at playstore

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    Atleast I am clear about being a fanboy, rather than being a diarrhoea in a page where you look like an idiot

  • Naail Zahid

    hey jackass, im a TECHNOLOGY fanboy, and I have both Xperia Z1Compact and iphone 6, but fact is fact asshole. The latest update killed iphones – everyone knows that.
    So go kiss samsung’s ass like your life depends on it…

  • Abdul Ghani

    lol u think he knows about technology he was born after android raped his mother

  • Abdul Ghani

    but b ………….. forever alone thats what u are

  • Naail Zahid

    I think his mother was raped by a smurf’s donkey…that had an android phone jammed in his ass. Which is why timel hates android…

  • Naail Zahid

    LOL I wonder what the Xperiablog moderators must be thinking while reading all this….god help us all :P

    And no I don’t mean timel’s god shitsung

  • Abdul Ghani

    god help timel and is vengence to stop

  • Abdul Ghani

    he needs to go back to school

  • Raj Singh

    Why is it taking Sony so long to get this tablet to market?
