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.

Unless this happens, my guess is that these big companies are making a calculated guess at what is cheaper. Paying up some peanuts (which is footed by the customers) or get in a protracted legal wrangling with MS (not even counting in the merits of such a suit).

Not to mention that while the suit is ongoing MS finds other ways to screw with them...
