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.

Remember that Samsung is a big PC OEM, so winning against Microsoft would still be a loss for them.

How would that work?

I think he/she means that Microsoft would make Samsung pay more on the desktop.

I doubt that's the case though because their anti-trust agreement prevents them from playing with their OEM pricing on a case by case basis.

Even though, they do charge each OEM different prices and have pricing on "case by case basis"
