License fees for Windows Phone should drop by 70%

Microsoft Action should encourage sales of handsets at lower prices

Recently you learned here at Technolsoft that Microsoft could cut the price of Windows 8 to manufacturers, causing costs to fall and, consequently, the price charged for the final product is also lower. Now, a similar situation should also happen with Windows Phone.

According to PC Mag, Microsoft was thinking of reducing the licensing fees of the mobile operating system by up to 70% for manufacturers partnerships, making the product more competitive in value.

The action would come after the announcement of a partnership with a number of manufacturers in China, India and other countries. In 2012, it was speculated that the value of the license per device would be up to $ 30, but he should have declined somewhat since. Cutting that rate should be just one strategy. For now, the company declined to comment.
