Microsoft today said that it has struck agreements with Coby Electronics and Aluratek, which will license smartphone-related patents from Microsoft for their own Android-based devices. Coby Electronics is based in Lake Success, N.Y., and Aluratek is based in Austin, Texas. "The licensing agreements with Aluratek and Coby Electronics demonstrate yet again that licensing is the path forward to resolving intellectual property disputes within the industry, and can be effective for companies of all sizes," said Microsoft Deputy General Counsel Horacio Gutierrez in a statement. Microsoft didn't say to what technologies the patents are related. Microsoft has reached similar licensing agreements with a number of other smartphone makers, including HTC, LG, Samsung, and others.
