Tablets and smartphones have often been criticized for ‘Bloatware’. Microsoft and Samsung will install many apps on Sammy’s handsets.  On Monday, Samsung announced that it will add pre-installed applications to its tablets. Some of these apps may be of a little use to the user or of no use at all. Companies that will sign up for Samsung’s business sales channel will get access to:

  • Business Premium
  • Office 365 Business
  • Samsung’s Knox Business Pack in the field of Enterprise

Both tech giants (Microsoft and Samsung) are to gain much from the collaboration. Microsoft will be given more exposure to the Android users while Samsung will be able to expand offerings to more businesses.

However, as Microsoft looks for more exposure, Samsung is ready streamlining the applications. Samsung is to allow users to delete most pre-installed applications on their devices including Google’s applications.

According to Samsung, the company is to remove cumbersome Bloatware. The Bloatware is capable of slowing down smart phones. Samsung will also reduce the number of notifications and pop-up alerts.
