Microsoft’s authorized reseller stores go live in PH
MANILA, Philippines – Microsoft opened its first two authorized reseller stores in the Philippines on June 27 and July 4.
The resellers, located in the Cyberzone areas of SM North EDSA Annex and SM Megamall, offered a range of products. These included Lumia smartphones and accessories, as well as Office 365 Personal software, HP Stream 7 and Stream 8 tablets, and the HP Pavillion X2 laptop.
Microsoft said in a statement that both opening days pushed up its sales. The newly-launched Lumia 640 XL and Lumia 540 Dual SIM were reportedly the run-away favorites among the offered products.
The company expects its presence – and the store’s visibility – to grow further once Windows 10 comes out and consumers look to get the latest version of the Microsoft OS on a new system. – Rappler.com
