Microsoft "One company - Taiwan's Foxconn - makes a staggering 40 percent of the world's consumer electronic devices. Starting now, Microsoft will be getting paid a toll on many of those devices. The company's long patent-licensing campaign has landed its biggest client yet in licensing Foxconn, formally named Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. Foxconn has agreed to take a license for any product it produces that runs Google's Android or Chrome operating systems." More protection money for the Microsoft patent mafia.

It's easier to attack smaller targets like HTC or Foxconn because they don't have Apple's, Google's or Samsung's money to defend in court...


Lets not forget that Microsoft are suing Motorola mobility which _is__ entirely Google......
