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.

Do you truly think that Samsung will pay $15 per Android device built without surely knowing that MSFT has the goods on them? Absurd!
These are all big boys. Look how hard Samsung is fighting Apple.

Shit example. Samsung has already got a world-wide legal war with Apple going down. If that's not reason enough for them not to want to start another one, the fact that Apple and MS want very different things, is.
