Windows Embedded 8 for POS VARs Coming April 1

Microsoft announced the general availability of the Windows Embedded 8 (www.getwindowsembedded8.com) family of operating systems. Windows Embedded 8 Industry, which targets retail point-of-service (POS) solutions and other scenarios across manufacturing and healthcare that require fixed experiences with enhanced lockdown, branding and the other benefits of Windows Embedded 8, will be available the week of April 1.

With Windows Embedded 8, enterprises can harness Windows 8 technologies with additional features to support industry devices within intelligent systems. Businesses will also have the ability to add or buy enterprise-specific functionality for their Windows Embedded 8-based solutions through licensing options Microsoft will make available in July.

Microsoft is betting that the Windows 8 innovations coupled with additional embedded functionality for edge devices will help VARs develop differentiated solutions with security enhancements, a refined application model and touch-first industry experiences. Windows Embedded 8 Standard and Windows Embedded 8 Pro are available immediately for OEMs to build and ship solutions.
