You have to hand it to Microsoft, they might not be able to sell phones, but they are going to make a lot of money off of Android. They have already inked deals with the likes of HTC, Samsung, Acer, Quanta, Wistron, General Dynamics Itronix, ViewSonic, Onkyo and Velocity Micro.
The list continues to grow as they just added original design manufacturer (ODM), Compal Electronics. This is the tenth deal for Microsoft. The deal remains unknown, but it will cover products ranging from tablets, mobile phones, e-readers, and other consumer devices running Android or Google’s Chrome platform.
It should be a nice chunk of change for Microsoft because Compal earns over $28 billion annually.
