Microsoft wants Samsung to pay up 15$ for every android sold

Here we go again ! Like we saw earlier how MS makes more money off Android than Windows Phone thanks to HTC, now it’s Samsung’s turn.

" Selling Droids ? Pay me a cut first "

This is right after a series of patent license deals with Onkyo, Velocity micro and Itronix (all Android device manufacturers). Samsung on the other hand, was till now, out of this attack. Now, they seek to lower the price per device to 10 $ and also, most importantly seek a deeper relationship with MS on the windows platform (More phones perhaps ? May be the rumored SGS2 hardware running WP mango ?). While MS should be happy whatever happens, the licensing deals are a boon till Android sales soar.

I still remember what Ballmer said once ” Android does not come free “.
