After buying Nokia's devices and services business, what's Microsoft's next step to growing the Windows phone market? According to Bloomberg's unnamed sources, that includes new devices from HTC, possibly goosed by loading Windows on its Android phones. The report also claims Microsoft operating systems chief Terry Myerson discussed lowering the license fee or dropping it entirely as an incentive. The paper's sources weren't clear on whether the devices might run both operating systems at once, or let users choose just one, so we'll let you imagine either scenario for the time being.
