Dell, Microsoft Agree to Android, Chrome Licensing Terms

Posted by at 6:29 am on March 27, 2014

Microsoft and Dell have inked a patent-licensing agreement in which Dell has agreed to pay Microsoft royalties for sales of devices based on Google’s Android and Chrome operating systems. Android uses some patents that are owned by Microsoft, and most major handset makers have already signed similar licensing agreements with Microsoft.

Motorola is the last major hold out because it believes its thousands of mobile patents negate the need to license Microsoft’s.

Terms of the agreement between Dell and Microsoft were not disclosed.
