Not the first time this has been rumored, but the Korean Times is reporting that Samsung and Apple are trying to negotiate a settlement in their ongoing legal battles over patent infringement.
Unnamed sources have reportedly told the Times that negotiations are ongoing, and the number of disputed issues is shrinking. These sources indicate both companies are trying to find common ground on which to move forward.
DID YOU KNOW? Updato offers seamless and guaranteed phone unlocking for any device, carrier and region! It's quick and easy - try it now.
Both companies have dropped their appeals of the 2013 ruling of the U.S. International Trade Commission’s ruling that Samsung infringed on Apple patents related to touchscreen user Interface issues and another related to detecting that a headset has been plugged in.
And Samsung continues to sell components, including chips and display screens, to Apple, with the latter company being one of Samsung’s top three component customers.
It would be nice to see these companies, as well as others, competing on product, rather than in the courts. As customers, we would all benefit.
And as always, we end with an invite: don't be a stranger and join our community - be a part of the conversation where we help each other out, discuss the latest and greatest, and make the best of our tech.
