it always amazes me how that $5 a handset turns into billions a year in free revenue. Anyone remember exactly what MS has over everyone that uses android? Wonder if its something google can eventually fix.

So Microsoft is in talks with Microsoft over patent use:
“We are in talks with Microsoft over the patent use, but specific details have not yet been decided,” a Microsoft spokesperson said.

Thank you for providing an interesting topic here. A while ago, I came across an article connected with the issue. It was entitled "LG latest Android user to license patents from Microsoft". It stated there that LG is the most recent system producer to sign an agreement with Microsoft to license its patents, and the said company is the eleventh manufacturer using Android or Chrome OS platforms to sign a deal with Microsoft. The move is intended to stay away from future lawsuits from the software giant. However, criticism has been noted. According to TechCrunch, Google has categorized Microsoft’s methods as “pure extortion.” Now, do you think this will be beneficial? If so, will the advantages outweigh the disadvantages? In my opinion, some patents are worth defending, some aren't. But, I like seeing the companies work hand in hand, because its how business should run.
