Microsoft, ASUS sign consolidated Android patent, Office packaging arrangement 

Is Microsoft making Office programming and administrations some piece of its Android-patent-authorizing arrangement terms? Another arrangement in the middle of Microsoft and ASUS makes it appear like it may be.

I'm beginning to ponder whether Microsoft has another system regarding marking patent manages Android/Linux/Chrome OS gadget reviews online creators.

On October 1, Microsoft reported it had marked an "extended" patent-permitting manage ASUSTek Computer Inc. (otherwise known as ASUS). The overhauled arrangement covers ASUS' Android-based telephones and programming.

As about two-dozen Android, Chrome OS and Linux merchants are doing, ASUS apparently is authorizing Microsoft's licenses to cover anything that is in those working frameworks which conceivably encroaches on Microsoft's protected innovation.

In any case, ASUS additionally is concurring, as a bargain's component reported today, to pre-introduce unspecified Microsoft "efficiency administrations" on Android cell phones and tablets. When I asked, a Microsoft representative said the administrations incorporated the Microsoft Office suite.

In spite of the fact that it appears to be very far fetched Google would preload Microsoft programming or administrations on any of its top gadgets reviews online, possibly Google will begin making applications that work on Windows and Windows Phone? Nowadays with Microsoft, I'll never say never, regarding the matter of potential accomplices and deals....
