Microsoft and Sharp sign patent licensing agreement

Microsoft and Sharp have signed a licensing agreement that gives Sharp access to Microsoft’s Extended File Allocation Table (exFAT) technology.

The deal allows Sharp to incorporate exFAT, a file system that facilitates large files for use in audiovisual media, into its Android-based smartphones.

Microsoft says it has reached other patent licensing agreement over exFAT, including with Panasonic, Sanyo, Sony and Canon.

More than 70 percent of all U.S. Android devices also fall under Microsoft’s licensing program, according to the company.
