Default Foxconn parent Hon Hai licenses Microsoft's patents for Android, Chrome devices

Microsoft has insisted that companies building products based on Android and Chrome are treading on ground covered by its patent portfolio for years now, and is continuing to press that claim. Today it's come to licensing terms with another one of them -- Foxconn parent Hon Hai. Well known for making Apple products, between its many subsidiaries, the massive company manufactures more than 40 percent of consumer electronics devices in the world. According to the press release, the deal covers patents for phones, tablets and TVs, and will result in Microsoft receiving royalty payments. We've already seen companies like HTC and LG choose to cut a deal, while Google-owned Motorola is continuing to fight. It's far too soon to know how those court battles will be resolved, but while the team in Redmond may not have caught up to Android in mobile market share, that doesn't mean it's not still getting paid.
