Analyst reveals that Microsoft earns $1.6 billion a year from Android, five times more than from Windows Phone

"ZDNet has managed to get its hands on an interesting report from Nomura, a financial services company, which shows that Google’s Android is proving to be a major breadwinner for Microsoft.

Due to licensing agreements between the two technology giants, Microsoft netted $1.6 billion from Android over the latest financial year.

Perhaps the most interesting revelation is that this money from Android is actually plugging a deep hole caused by some of Microsoft’s other Entertainment and Device Division (EDD) projects, such as Skype and Windows Phone. Estimates suggest that Xbox is by far one of the biggests costs to the company, which is currently losing Microsoft around $2 billion a year. Without royalties from Android, the EED would be losing around $2.5 billion a year in total."

HTC reportedly working with Google for next Nexus 10 tablet | NDTV Gadgets

Google and HTC launched the first Nexus smartphone dubbed Nexus One in 2010, and since then, have not teamed up for any device.

However, a new report emerging from Taiwan claims that Google and HTC might again be seen launching a device, and this time it could be a 10-inch Nexus tablet, thought to be named Nexus 10.
DigiTimes, in a report citing industry sources, claims that HTC will jointly launch the next-generation of Nexus 10 tablet with Google, though the report does not mention a specific release time. There is also no word on the innards of the Nexus 10 tablet, as of now.
HTC had launched two tablets: a 7-inch Flyer tablet in 2011, and a 10-inch Jetstream tablet in the same year; however both the tablets fared poorly due to poor pricing and a lack of apps, informs the report.
The report further reveals that HTC declined Google's proposal to launch the Nexus 7 tablet in 2012, and the Mountain View giant then teamed up with Asus to launch the relatively successful device.
Contradicting the current report, it was earlier said that the Nexus 10 successor would be launched by Samsung and the alleged device's specifications were tipped. As per the leaked specifications, the alleged Nexus 10 successor tablet would come with a 10-inch display with a resolution of 2560x1600 (WQXGA) pixels; 3GB of RAM; 16GB and 32GB inbuilt storage; 5-megapixel rear camera and a 3-megapixel front-facing camera. Interestingly, the Nexus 10 was said to run Android's next iteration dubbed Android 4.5; this was the first time since Android KitKat's release that we have heard of the next Android version.
It's worth mentioning that Google launched the first Nexus 10 tablet in October 2012.
A recent report has also indicated that Google might launch a new Nexus tablet (thought to be dubbed Nexus 8) with an 8-inch display by mid-2014.
