The latest "victim" of that licensing has become a well-known camera manufacturer, and Microsoft praised signing a license agreement with Nikon Corporation on their PR pages, covering the entire range of Microsoft's patent portfolio for Nikon cameras that operate on the Android platform.
Microsoft states that the contents of this contract will not be announced to the public, so we will not know how much money Nikon will unload to Microsoft per year. What we know is that licensing will certainly embrace Android camera Coolpix S800c you can see in the picture, as well as all future Nikon digital cameras that will work on Android.
