Xu said;” we always respect the intellectual property of companies. But we have 65,000 patents worldwide too. We have enough to protect our interests. We are very important stakeholder in Android.”

Microsoft is extracting royalty from many companies for Android products, including Samsung, HTC, Compal electronics, Quanta Computer, Wistron, General Dynamics Itronix, velocity micro, Onkyo, acer and Viewsonic.
