Google and Microsoft today announced that they have settled various patent squabbles and dropped about 20 lawsuits between them in the U.S. and Germany. The two companies have been tussling over mobile and wireless technology since 2010. In addition to putting their arguments to rest, the companies have agreed to work together on certain technologies, such as video compression, moving forward. "Google and Microsoft have agreed to collaborate on certain patent matters and anticipate working together in other areas in the future to benefit our customers," said the companies. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

Now they can drop the price of their respective devices because they wont have to pay for all this litigation and settlements.
