Stand and deliver!
The point here is where does all that lovely money come from?
Indirectly from the end-user, that's who.
You don't for a minute think that the likes of HTC or Samsung will fail to pass the added cost onto their customers, do you? No, this is a shakedown of biblical proportions and I can't for the life of me see who is going to stop it.
Google? Maybe, as although they make no money from Android itself they are being squeezed by the fact that MS is making the Android ecosystem less attractive by increasing costs and thereby slowing down Google's ad revenue, but I won't be holding my breath.
Motorola, that's debateable, as they seem to be a bit short of cash just now.
Other than those two who has the resources and motivation to put a stop to this appalling highway robbery?
