If anybody's making money off of Android, it's Microsoft, which has just signed another licensing deal with another Android merchant.
This time it's Pegatron, which is gonna pay Microsoft to run Android and Chrome on its e-readers, tablets and phones. How much is secret like Microsoft's other licensing arrangements.
Nailing Pegatron means Microsoft now has four of the top five Taiwanese ODMs, according to Microsoft deputy general counsel Horacio Gutierrez. That would give it 70% of all US Android devices.
Microsoft has 1,100 licensing agreements to its credit.
