BUILD Day 1 Keynote. All the goodness now available on video.

Posted on 02 April 2014, Last updated on 26 January 2020 by

It was a long opening keynote at BUILD today but totally worth watching all the way from start to finish. There were exciting announcements across-the-board and when I say across-the-board I mean announcements that affect cross-Windows compatibility. The unified Store took a huge step forward today. Windows 8.1 Update is detailed as is Windows Phone 8.1 which is coming in new devices from may and then rolling out after that to other devices. You’ll also hear the superb news that the Windows 8 license free will be dropped for all Windows Phones and PCs up to 9-inch screen. This will really help the Windows tablet market develop. Finally you’ll see the demo of a RT version of Office built for touch.

You can find more detail in our posts here but we do recommend you watch the video, if only to see Satya Nadella putting in a great performance as new CEO of Microsoft.
