72266719 story Microsoft Increases Android Patent Licensing Reach 103 Posted by Soulskill on Saturday April 25, 2015 @10:29AM from the if-you-can't-beat-'em,-bleed-'em dept. BrianFagioli writes: Microsoft may not be winning in the mobile arena, but they're still making tons of money from those who are. Patent licensing agreements net the company billions each year from device makers like Samsung, Foxconn, and ZTE. Now, Microsoft has added another company to that list: Qisda Corp. They make a number of Android and Chrome-based devices under the Qisda brand and the BenQ brand, and now Microsoft will be making money off those, too.
