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.

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

They might have to.
Their laptops run Windows. Korea is basically a Microsoft Windows promised land.

But I believe this will force them to drop WP7 altogether.

Thom, I hope you have a non Samsung WP7. Because I fear that will be the end of updates for you.
