LXer: List of Companies that Pay Royalties to Microsoft for Using Android OS

Published at LXer:

According to Microsoft, Google's Android OS is infringing on many of its patents and hence those manufacturers who use Android for their devices owe royalties to Microsoft. But the intriguing fact is that, instead of suing Google itself for infringing on its patents, Microsoft is finding it easy to sue or threaten smaller firms which don't have the financial muscle to fight a legal battle with the Redmond giant. Following is the list of companies who are already paying royalties or being sued by Microsoft for using Android.
