The never-ending stream of Microsoft doing good business doesn’t end. Foxconn, the Taiwanese manufacturer that produces an amazing 40 percent of the world’s consumer electronic devices (!!!) will soon be sending plentiful sums of money to Microsoft.
The reason being? In the past (circa 2012), Microsoft has convinced the likes of Samsung, HTC, and LG to license their patents as long as they make Android devices. More explicit details aren’t to be had, but there is confirmation that what Foxconn will be paying for is the Android and Chrome OS devices it makes, including televisions, smartphones, and tablets.
