Windows Microsoft's Terry Myerson, corporate vice president of Windows Phone, talks about the competition. "With iPhone, I sense that it's running out of steam. With iOS, [Apple] just added a fifth row of icons. Android is... kind of a mess. Look at Samsung - there's clearly mutiny going on. The only OEM making money off of Android is Samsung." There's truth to all these statements, which makes it all the more surprising that Microsoft appears to be unable to properly capitalise on them. Sure, WP appears to be doing well in a few select markets, but by no means the kind of success Microsoft and (Nokia) was banking on. Microsoft will pull through. Nokia on the other hand...

But Microsoft is making money from Android!
Thru patents royalties they enforce on android devices makers.


As I've asked elsewhere, show how much money?

Yes, we all hear in the media from some Microsoft PR agent that they are making money from Android. Yet no numbers are provided. All settlements with OEMs are sealed (though some are getting unsealed due to the cases with Samsung). And no final judgements have been entered. So how much money?

Or is reality that Microsoft is paying out more than the other party in the settlements are paying them?

Without numbers, we don't know. And I doubt they broke down the SEC filings enough to say from them.
