Android Brings In More Revenue To Microsoft Than It's Own Windows Phone 7!

Android Market Dominance

The same reason (Android tablet will overtake iPads) that apple is running around like a dog with it's tail on fire, trying to thwart Android, any thing Android, tablets etc, seems to be making Microsoft much richer.
Android Smartphone market share rose to nearly 50% of worldwide mobile market (40% US Market) in Smartphone market share.
According to Forbes,

According to Horace Dediu, Microsoft sold around 1.4 million Windows Phone 7 in Q2, which brought in around $21 million from the $15 per Windows Phone 7 that it earns.

On the other hand, HTC sold 12 million Android smartphones in Q2, and as it earns around $5 per Android phone from HTC patent licensing fees, Microsoft made around $60 million. This is 3x the amount earned from its own OS from the licensing deal with HTC alone.

So dominance of Android may help Microsoft to pass $27 barrier (the price I bought my Apple a long while ago) and make the next Billion
