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.

Best next thing I can see that should be done now, its about Google requiring Samsung a fee payment based on violation of some (they certainly do) of the thousand licenses Google owns now. This is becoming an open war and now its the right time to count weapons and fix who is aligning with who.
