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.

Well I know people are not happy. Let's look at other way... Microsoft is earning lot more money from Android than WP7! Taking this scenario... It is in benefit of Microsoft to see to it that Android succeeds!
However one interesting thing I really want to see... The way they have threaten Samsung, HTC, Acer and other mobile vendors and are now in deal. I would like to see they talk in same language to Motorola and ask them to pay for their patented technologies. That would actually expose the truth.
