Anyway, the fun thing is that Nokia gets (because of patents) $10.60 for every iPhone sold (http://www.webpronews.com/nokia-made-more-from-iphone-sales-than-lumia-sales-2012-04). This stuff can get confusing. :-)
Good Luck From that Apple. and Why HTC Accept that kind of Agreement?.
thanks for giving me one more reason not to buy htc phone...
it makes me easier to pick my next phone...
HTC, you are such a bunch of sell-outs. You have let these crApp£€ bullies get their way and now are consigning yourself to the dustbin.
BOYCOTT all Apple products. Unfortunately for you HTC buying HTC now means money going to the school bully crApp£€. I would like to support you, but why should we support those who don't stand up to the bullies themselves?
i doubt, if htc is paying apple would be so arrogant about it and make the world know about it.
not for the money but to scare people off.
I love apple apps and mac..... but not mobile devices....... same as microsoft..... for mobile..... Android Rules
I suppose apple has to get there money from somewhere coz they ain't doin to good with there revolutionary iPhone 5 loooooool

So Crapple will be leeching its money not earning it. And HTC does not have the balls and the brains to remove from their devices what ever cRapple is sucking from them.
That's so great news for Samsung. Now people have more reasons not to buy rotten apple and 糊塗蟲htc.
Samsung will be dominate both the Smartphone and features phone markets for the next 5 years or more.
Hey great peepz! First thing... do you know how to RUN a company???????
Anonymous, 12 Nov 2012HTC is not really a big company. Check out the link and see for yourself that the global share... moreHTC also makes a lot of phones not under the "HTC" name. That's how the company started in the first place. Please do your research before comment. That's actually how samsung and LG started as well.
if i remember apple said they would pay Motorola $1 or less per iPhone they sell for Motorola patent, and now they are asking for $6-$8 per HTC unit this is insane, when it comes to give others patent are not worth even a $1 but apple can charge whatever they want.
Apple is so unreasonable to make court cases against possible threats to survive in the smartphone world due to fear. Apple will get return soon for this bad habit. God bless you apple.

Good going Samsung. Stick it too Apple. If everyone starts playing Apple's game they will taste massive doses of Karma. Its exciting

"As many of you know, Samsung supplies several important pieces to some of Apple’s devices, including the processors. Recently, Samsung decided to ask 20% more for the cost of those processors. According to sources, Apple disapproved at first, but they could not find another source for the chips and had to accept the price increase. The report also listed the number of processors that Apple has bought from Samsung, a staggering amount of 130 million chips last year and more than 200 million this year. That price increase is going to sting a little with those numbers."

If this is true, then do you think that this agreement was reached because HTC did NOTHING WRONG??
This agreement was reached BECAUSE HTC did something wrong.
That's if this is true.
