Nick Parker, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s OEM Division will deliver a keynote at IFA 2015 in September called “Windows 10 Lights Up New Devices.”
The keynote by Parker will showcase some new Windows 10 devices, interestingly enough though there’s no mention of Lumia or smartphone devices in the list mentioned by IFA.
Parker will demonstrate a breadth of new Windows 10 devices, including tablets, 2-in-1s, premium notebooks, gaming devices and all-in-ones that will light up the Windows 10 experience for customers.
Considering that Parker oversees worldwide sales, marketing, and licensing of pre-installed Windows OS and applications and services on a wide range of device families including mobile, personal computers, servers, and IoT devices it is a very curious omission that smartphones aren’t mentioned in what he will be introducing – especially in light of recent decisions by Microsoft regarding their mobile division. That being said, Parker is responsible for the software end of things on OEM devices and not the hardware side so we may still see some separate announcements from Microsoft at IFA regarding other devices as both the Lumia and Surface lines are first party and not OEM devices.
Microsoft’s keynote will take place on September 4th at 3pm (Berlin, Germany time) and it’ll be interesting to see what devices Microsoft will be showcasing just over a month after the official release of Windows 10.
“It’s about the software and the experiences it enables on devices!” said Jens Heithecker, IFA Executive Director. “Windows 10 is coming – with new capabilities and experiences for consumers and businesses. We are excited to see Microsoft take the keynote stage at IFA to give us a glimpse at how its partners plan to incorporate that future into the devices we rely on for work, home and play.”
