Report: Microsoft demanding $15 per Android phone from Samsung | The Microsoft Blog - seattlepi.com

Microsoft is demanding Samsung pay $15 for each Android phone it makes, according to Reuters, as the software giant asserts the intellectual property rights it says it has on technology in Google’s mobile operating system.

Citing a South Korean newspaper and its anonymous industry sources, Reuters reports that Samsung would likely try to negotiate a $10 patent-licensing fee “in exchange for a deeper alliance with Microsoft” for Windows. It has been previously reported that HTC, another manufacturer, pays Microsoft $5 for every Android smart phone it makes.
