Microsoft Well, paint me red and call me a girl scout, I totally did not see this one coming at all. This is so utterly surprising it made my brain explode. Hold on to your panties, because this will rock your world. After pressuring several smaller Android vendors into submission (and yes, HTC is still relatively small compared to other players), Microsoft is now moving on to the big one: Redmond is demanding $15 for every Samsung Android device sold. Samsung's choices are simple: pay up, or face another epic lawsuit.

The same reason mafia doesn't fight big opponents openly. Too big of a hassle and too much publicity. They prefer easy and dirty.

Well Samsung IS a big opponent. It is bigger than Google.

Samsung is probably the biggest and most diversified opponent Microsoft could face.
