Microsoft Starts Selling Windows 10 on USB Sticks

/ 5 years ago

Microsoft Windows 10 Retail Box USB Drive Japan

When the packaging for Windows 10 was first revealed, we got a glimpse of what the USB retail box would look like. Later on, we got images for what the USB flash drives would look like, with the flashier version meant for retail. Now, we’re finally getting a glimpse of what the real world retail packing and USB drives look like.

Straight from the  first retailers to get the OS from Japan, the first impression is that Microsoft has switched things up before the launch. For one, gone is the dull USB box art for the retail package. It looks like Microsoft decided that the DVD box art would be much more appealing to customers and it’s hard to disagree.

For the flash drives themselves, Microsoft looks to have done a slight color change. Instead of a metallic blue for the drive body, it’s been changed to more of a silver color. The blue plastic cap remains, but the color has been washed out a bit, resembling the blue Windows 10 logo more in tone.

With Windows 10 free to upgrade for most users, these retail boxes probably aren’t selling too well. Windows 10 is of the more popular Windows releases in recent years and has already been installed on 75 million devices.
