Microsoft It turns out that a lot of people haven't been paying attention. Over the weekend, a story about how Microsoft is earning more from HTC's Android devices than from its own Windows Phone 7 sales spread all across the web, with surprised reactions everywhere. Anyone who has been paying attention to Microsoft's recent patent trolling regarding Android could've seen this coming.

My first modern smartphone was from htc. But i swore as soon as they made this "licensing" deal with microsoft i would never buy anything from them again. Which means i will also make sure anyone who asks for a recommendation for a phone NEVER gets pointed in their direction as well. Im sure there are quite a few people like myself out there who do the same. I read recently how they decided to stop locking down the bootloader how nice of them. Maybe the real reason was they couldnt afford the extra engineering time because of the millions they are paying to ms lol.
