Online sales are definitely not something new for Microsoft India. The local representative has been offering software for quite some time now. But other than Windows, Office suits and various development tools, the official Microsoft store does not offer anything from the US tech giant's extensive device lineup. These are of course available through various dealers, but no central, official marketplace existed up until now.
Microsoft has taken steps to address that and has launched an official device store, through Amazon India. The store is practically new and is still rapidly building up a portfolio, but with a current list of categories, spanning: Microsoft Xbox, Windows Phone, Windows 8.1, Office, Accessories and Laptops & Tablets it seems that most every physical product that Microsoft has to offer could potentially be distributed through the channel.
Currently the Amazon page only has a few active deals, including two Xbox One bundles, but everything looks promising and it should be only a matter of time until the whole thing gains momentum.
There is hope for Microsoft's bleeding wp platform Nokia the largest mobile phone company lost its most valuable asset just because of this platform so there will be no change if Microsoft kills Lumia lineup it will only make worst of it.
Wonder if it will have an amazon app store pre-installed ;-)
