Claim: Windows Phone license fees currently cost $25, Windows RT $90

imageMyNokiaBlog reports from “a source familiar with Microsoft’s licensing scheme” that Windows Phone’s license fee is $25 per handset, and Windows RT costs $90.

This is somewhat more than the $15 which has been rumoured earlier, and for cheap handsets put Windows Phones at a competitive disadvantage with Android.

There have been rumours recently that Microsoft will be making Windows Phone free, and at those prices we certainly think its a good idea, with Microsoft hopefully making up the difference from the sales of apps, music and other platform services.

Do our readers think a charge of $25 per handset is competitive or justifiable? Let us know below.
