ZTE reveals cost of Windows Phone OS licensing


From Neowin:
Sierra revealed that ZTE actually pays Microsoft around £15-£20 GBP ($23-$31 USD / €18-€24 EUR) for each Windows Phone licence. This is a good deal higher than expected; it had been widely assumed that OEMs paid roughly $10-$15 USD (£6.50-£10 GBP / €8-€11.50 EUR) per handset.
