Nokia Fanboy PRO, 28 Sep 2011Nice one, MS! Now that you have Samsung and HTC paying for every Android device sold, it's tim... moreYou are SO deluded omg.Why is it that everything that companies do is a major plan to kill Android?And realy what is you problem with Android?Android is a great OS.You OBVIOUSELY never tried it before
I'm glad that MS is able to come to a licensing agreement instead of trying to outright ban devices. This way, everyone is happy. MS gets paid, Samsung gets to sell the devices and consumers get to buy them.
Nokia Fanboy PRO, 28 Sep 2011Nice one, MS! Now that you have Samsung and HTC paying for every Android device sold, it's tim... morealmost every corporation have to pay microsoft even nokia with symbian meaby its one of the reason why they killed sybian.
Nice one, MS! Now that you have Samsung and HTC paying for every Android device sold, it's time to make Motorola pay. Imagine Motorola, or should I say Google since they bought Moto, pay for every Android device sold. Now that would be great! In the end, Android won't be free anymore since these OEMs needs to pay MS some cash for every Android handset sold.
MS should drop the WP7 license fee and undercut Android FTW. The MS masterplan is working as planned.
Go MS, GO! Kill Android!
Anonymous, 28 Sep 2011I might be a bit dense here, but why are samsung and htc paying royalties to microsoft for usi... moreAndroid uses much of Microsoft patents, they know it, but, instead of Apple, Microsoft only charges a little fee, Apple instead like to ban EVERYTHING. And not just HTC or Samsung, also SE, LG, Huawei the list is endless :P
I might be a bit dense here, but why are samsung and htc paying royalties to microsoft for using android? What's android got to do with microsoft?
The Boy with Red Hat, 28 Sep 2011MegaLOL At the end.... Everyone pays loyalties to Microsoft.....I know but most poeple don't know that. that one of my main reason why a hate apple so much. They take technologie of others make it there own by a flaw patent systeme and trying to kill competition by ban.
At the end....
Everyone pays loyalties to Microsoft.....

Windows dominated the whole market with few competition coming from MAC.
In the mobile world, its IOS v/s Android.
M not sure if I understand it completely...but what I can see s that in tge near future its going to be android vs windows...
Hm...much like the computer world itself..linux vs windows...:-)
why not samsung work more on their bada os so no can sue or pay royalty to. bada is a good os but samsung needs to invest more to it...
This is where Tizen comes in. Work on Tizen and you don't have to worry about paying Microsoft. Also the name may be changing to Tizen Takeover
this is wat i meant working together happily, to create a win-win situation, the best benefit is the consumer us :) not not ever-lasting sueing, Apple sue Saamsung, Samsung sue Apple, this is total shit by sueing one another, euro wont enjoy samsung gadget, for wat ?
