LXer: HTC settles with Microsoft in Android patent deal

Published at LXer:

Microsoft and HTC have signed a patent agreement protecting the handset maker from Microsoft patent lawsuits over its industry-leading Android smartphones. HTC will pay royalties to Microsoft, which for the first time is enforcing its alleged Linux-related patents on an Android-based product -- yet the agreement may help HTC defend against Apple's Android-related lawsuit.
