  • Tech Discussion: Microsoft Android patent licenses generate $2 billion a year
    #1
    Microsoft is making $10 to $13 in patent royalty payments on each Android phone or tablet sold by its competitors.
    Currently, Android has around an 82% smart phone market share, while Apple has 14% and Microsoft has 4%.
    The $2 billion that Microsoft received in Android royalties in 2013 just about covered the staggering losses in their X-Box division.
