Microsoft signs Foxconn patent deal

Microsoft has secured a patent deal with the world’s biggest consumer electronics manufacturer to receive fees for devices powered by Google’s Android and Chrome operating systems.

Hon Hai – the parent company of Foxconn – said the deal would help prevent its clients being caught up in an ongoing intellectual property dispute.

Microsoft says that Google’s code makes use of innovations it owns.

Google alleges its rival’s claims are based on “bogus patents”.

However, the search giant’s Motorola handset division has itself lost a number of legal challenges involving some of the disputed technologies which may have encouraged others involved in the smart device sector to settle.
