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.”
