Microsoft Well, paint me red and call me a girl scout, I totally did not see this one coming at all. This is so utterly surprising it made my brain explode. Hold on to your panties, because this will rock your world. After pressuring several smaller Android vendors into submission (and yes, HTC is still relatively small compared to other players), Microsoft is now moving on to the big one: Redmond is demanding $15 for every Samsung Android device sold. Samsung's choices are simple: pay up, or face another epic lawsuit.

Android infringes on many levels.


I'd love to see a list of what patents Android is infringing on. It would be second only to seeing the list of what 400-some-odd patents the Linux kernel allegedly infringes on.

Until the patents infringed are listed for open discussion, this is all court room theater.
