PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This is the biggest one yet. Microsoft's professional extortion campaign - the third side of the same triangle it shares with Apple and Oracle - has finally hit Samsung. The two companies have signed a patent licensing agreement concerning Samsung's use of Android, in which a rumoured fee of $15 (!) per device will flow from Seoul to Redmond. Not entirely coincidentally, that's about the price of a Windows Phone 7 license.

Why would Alcatel Lucent (owner of Bell Labs) wand to partner with Android just because Android is in patent troubles?

Lucent, unlike Google, actually respects patents. So why would they want to join Google in their patent war?
