Microsoft making serious money on Android

It is well known that Microsoft is making Android device manufacturers pay a licensing fee for patents held by Microsoft for features that are used in Android. According to this Boy Genius article, HTC and Samsung are paying Microsoft $15 per device. If Microsoft gets that from all Android manufacturers, and Google really is activating 500,000 Android devices per day, that is $7.5MM Microsoft makes per day. Not too shabby considering Microsoft didn’t write one line of code in Android.
