Windows User Experience head Joe Belfiore revealed that his team was not reponsible for Microsoft Band OS. It is surprising given the fact that Windows runs everywhere. Joe Belfiore is now reponsible only for PC/Tablet/Phone, while Xbox and Microsoft Band remains independent. He also revealed that this team collabrated with Microsoft Band team for bringing Cortana support in Band for Windows Phone users. Regarding the query about international availability, Joe said that they are starting out in the US to learn and get feedback for a little while. Stay tunes for more updates.
If you are in the US, Microsoft Band is now on sale. The Microsoft Band comes in three different sizes as well: small, medium and large. It’s available for $199 from the Microsoft Store and you can purchase one from here.
