Microsoft opens fourteen Innovation Centres across India

Microsoft is working on expanding in India, with fourteen Microsoft Innovation Centres on their way. The MICs are meant to bring benefits to students within India. Education is a big thing in the country, with items like the $35 Aakash tablet also on the market.

Microsoft Innovation Centres will bring student certification to the country, which could be beneficial for those looking into work with Microsoft and its products. Local start-ups will also be happy to hear about the MIC expansion, for they can also provide support and foster their growth.

Microsoft has big plans for their Centres, with plans for 100+ by the end of 2014. Centres are to be opened at colleges and technological institues across four Indian states, focusing on mobility, cloud, Kinect, accessibility, healthcare and issues unique to India. 'Mobility' and 'cloud' in plain English? Windows Phone and Azure, most likely.
