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.

Funny, your observations go against industry statistics.

As I said, I wish I'd kept some solid metrics on it. I know what I was seeing, though. It could be that this region isn't representative of the whole, and I'm only speaking from my experience, but I'd honestly be surprised if the customer behaviour, regarding what they put up with, were different elsewhere.
