The general consensus is that Samsung, and a lot of other OEMS, really, are a lot more reasonable than the folks in the land of the bitten fruit. While I can neither agree or disagree, I think it’s safe to say that Samsung is more interested in getting these lawsuits out of the way quick (though Apple would probably want them in the books even quicker for completely opposite reasons).
It appears the two are making slow, but steady process at coming to terms as Samsung’s head of mobile JK Shin says negotiations for several agreements, namely cross-licensing agreements, are ongoing. We wouldn’t expect a hug and a smile overnight, of course, but the mediation session between Apple and Samsung will hopefully give us a better idea of where both parties are on things. [via Engadget]
