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.

Actually they did and Apple have been copying from Android in ver. 4 and is supposed to continue in 5.


Can you cite examples... and no, not the inclusion of cloud technology or associated services. That isn't copying any more than Google creating web based email was copying hotmail.


They also innovated java exectution making it suitable for battery constrained devices.


They innovated a technology that they didn't have legal allowance to use in the first place?
