+ - Microsoft to charge phone makers a licensing fee->

Submitted by

angry tapir writes "Microsoft may be one of the only remaining mobile operating-system providers that charges handset makers a licensing fee, but in exchange vendors get at least one important benefit: protection from intellectual property worries. "Microsoft indemnifies its Windows Phone 7 licensees against patent infringement claims," the company said. "We stand behind our product, and step up to our responsibility to clear the necessary IP rights." In August, Oracle sued Google, saying that the way Android handles Java infringes its patents."
