Microsoft said to be waiving Windows Phone fees for some manufacturers


Rumours abound lately that Microsoft’s Windows Phone OS may become free to some companies to help them compete with Android. Two unnamed Indian manufacturers, part of a new group of Windows Phone partners, have said that they are getting WP8 at no charge to them. One told the Times of India that it’s “not paying Microsoft a license fee” through a unique agreement. Microsoft would not confirm this, only saying that  “we have extensive programs to help our partners build great devices.”
