    What are the features that Microsoft gets royalty payments from Android for? I imagine they must be pretty profound if Google couldn't get around them back in the lawsuit wards when Android was starting up. I know exfat, which I imagine is not supported on these cheapie phones. "One example of those "innovative" things MS is paid for is long file names for FAT filesystems."

    Isn't it like $8 an Android that goes to Microsoft?

    $8 per Android device must be a pretty huge income stream for Microsoft.
