Microsoft to pay $2 billion to get Windows Phones out there?

VR Zone picked up a rumor that Microsoft is going to pay big bucks to seed the market with Windows Phone devices. The move seems a massive gamble for Microsoft, if Mobile-Review’s Eldar Murtazin is correct, the software giant will pay $1.2 billion to Samsung, $500 million to Sony and $600 million to Huawei to launch just a single Windows Phone this year.
As rumors go, this one is incredulous: Mobile-Review’s Eldar Murtazin tweeted yesterday that Microsoft will pay Samsung, Sony and Huawei to launch one Windows Phone handset in 2014.

For Microsoft, these handsets come at a hefty price. Samsung is set to receive $1.2 billion, Sony $500 million and Huawei $600 million. The money is for designing and launching one Windows Phone handset this year. This cash influx would be a huge incentive for manufacturers like Sony and Huawei to launch Windows Phone handsets.
