Danger's price tag: Reportedly $500 million

While it's no Yahoo, mobile phone maker Danger apparently fetched quite a steep price from Microsoft.

Microsoft didn't say how much it was paying for Danger when it announced the deal on Monday. However, according to Om Malik, the price tag for the company was $500 million.

That's more than $1 million per employee for the company, which has 294 workers. However, the price tag makes some sense when you consider the company has taken in $225 million from investors and had been pondering an IPO.
