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.

I would like to see they talk in same language to Motorola and ask them to pay for their patented technologies. That would actually expose the truth.

Thanks for the links. Indeed this is excellent. Is the case still going on after Google's acquisition? It will be interesting to see what result we get.
