Microsoft not charging fees for Windows OS to some manufacturers

There are rumors circulating around the Windows OS this time and according to what we have all been hearing, the Windows Phone OS might become available for free to some companies in order to help them compete with the Android devices. Two unnamed Indian manufacturers who are apparently part of the group of the new Windows Phone partners have claimed that they received the Windows Phone 8 at absolutely no cost.

In a conversation with Times of India, one of the manufacturers stated that "not paying Microsoft a license fee" through a unique, specific agreement.However, Redmond has made no confirmation about this statement and has stated that "we have extensive programs to help our partners build great devices."

Indian OEM Karbonn have recently launched a dual-boot Android/WP8 phone but so far it has not confessed to any larges. But whatever the case is eventaully, the surprising bit is that it is the first time that Microsoft hasnt charged anything for its mobile OS, not even from Nokia.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
