Licensed Hardware at Microsoft

Also known as the Partner Hardware Team, we are the brand and technology licensing group for Microsoft Devices.

Established in 2001 with the launch of the original Xbox, the Designed for Xbox program was born. In 2013 those processes were expanded to create the Designed for Surface program. Today these programs are known for their world-class partner management, and brand and technology licensing.
