Article Comments  3

Microsoft has licensed a total of 74 smartphone patents from the companies Acacia and Access. Acacia's business model is to own and license out technology patents. Access is the company that bought PalmSource, the division behind creating Palm OS. Microsoft acknowledged licensing the patents for an undisclosed sum, and called them "foundational" to certain smartphone systems. This is the opposite tactic normally taken by Microsoft, which typically licenses out its own Windows Mobile software and related patents.
