Android Could Be a Billion-Dollar Business, for Microsoft

Trefis Team, writing for Forbes:

All these patent agreements could generate revenues well in excess of $1 billion for Microsoft by the end of 2012. Currently, Microsoft Office and the Windows operating system are the most valuable segments for Microsoft; however, Android could turn out to be its next billion dollar business and one of its largest revenue generators – surpassing the value of its own Windows 7 platform and perhaps Bing in the not too distant future.

Nice work if you can get it.
