Will the patent agreement with Foxcomm allow them to build systems for anyone if they pay the requisite royalties to Microsoft? If so, it could be a competitive edge for Foxcomm because their customers would have reduced patent infringement liability.

Motorola was int he top 2 or 3 in patent filings for years. I'm guessing that nothing but a cross license will come out of the goog-ms fight...

I don't know. I think that is really unclear. But it seems the idea is that Microsoft has such a broad patent portfolio that people are afraid that they may unknowingly violate it. Jim McGreggor thinks that we simply grant way too many patents these days and that that is part of the problem.

Microsoft gets 5-15$ per Android phone made by patent licensees. That may be more than what Google make per android device in an year.

WTF has Android to do with M$. Looks like they realise they are losing the OS game in mobile space and are angry and in mood to twist arms.

The whole idea behind android was a freeware phone. Now MS has to go muck it up.
