Tomorrow, Microsoft will hold its Education-focused event in New York City. Up till now, there only have been some rumours about what to expect from the event.
Microsoft will introduce new devices which are supposed to be Chromebook competitors. The new hardware will be called Cloudbook and we will probably see Cloudbooks not just from Microsoft but also from OEM partners tomorrow. The devices will be affordable and therefore not get the best display or the fastest CPU. They will come with all-day battery life which is really important for students.
Windows 10 Cloud
Windows 10 Cloud has been a rumour for a long time now. Tomorrow, Microsoft will finally announce this new version of Windows 10 which will offer increased security and only let users download apps from the Windows Store. With Windows 10 Cloud, Microsoft is really trying to attack Google with its Chromebooks.
Office comes to the Windows Store
Office is a really important software especially for students. As Windows 10 Cloud will only be able to download apps from the Windows Store, Office needs to come to the Store. Together with the fully featured Office Apps in the Store you will also be able to buy Office 365 subscriptions right from the Windows Store.
