Microsoft responds to blogger's 2014 Windows Phone co-marketing budget estimate Earlier in the week, occasionally accurate Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin claimed that Microsoft was setting aside $2.6 billion for Windows Phone OEMs like Sony, Samsung and HTC as a co-marketing budget.
While the company confirmed there was such a budget for co-marketing, Corporate VP of Communications Frank X. Shaw says the numbers are completely untrue and "fiction."

Murtazin quickly responded that his numbers are correct but that Microsoft could spend a good portion of it on funding R&D and other expenses.
