Microsoft Pri0 | Electronics company Wistron pays Microsoft for Google Android | Seattle Times Newspaper

Android is “free” as in “vendors are free to pay Microsoft rather than Google”

Microsoft and Wistron, an original design manufacturer in Taiwan, said Tuesday they have signed a license agreement where Wistron will pay Microsoft royalties for using software made by Microsoft's competitor Google on Wistron's designs for tablets, e-readers and mobile phones.

Last week, three other companies that use Android said they would pay Microsoft royalty fees: Onkyo, General Dynamics Itronix and Velocity Micro.
