Microsoft "One company - Taiwan's Foxconn - makes a staggering 40 percent of the world's consumer electronic devices. Starting now, Microsoft will be getting paid a toll on many of those devices. The company's long patent-licensing campaign has landed its biggest client yet in licensing Foxconn, formally named Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. Foxconn has agreed to take a license for any product it produces that runs Google's Android or Chrome operating systems." More protection money for the Microsoft patent mafia.

> "Biggest patent licensee"

Really ??
What about Sammy ?

It's supposed to produce more Android devices than its competitors combined, let alone those which are built by Foxconn And don't already have a license with MS...
