Microsoft and Dell reach patent licensing agreement over Android, Chrome, Xbox

Microsoft and Dell have reached a cross-licensing patent agreement involving Android and Chrome OS devices and the Xbox gaming console.

Under the agreement, Dell would pay Microsoft royalties for Dell’s devices running Android or Chrome OS platforms. Microsoft contends that it holds patents on certain technologies used in those operating systems.

In turn, Microsoft is able to license Dell’s intellectual properties that are used in the Xbox. It was unclear from the press release whether that means Microsoft will be paying Dell a royalty for each Xbox console it produces; a Microsoft spokeswoman declined to clarify that point.

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
