z, 12 Nov 2012are you serious? HTC lose because they were using something owned by apple... Are you serious? thats what apple claims about every phone out there.
why apple doesnt bother sony or lg?..because the iphone 4 is too similar to lg prada or some others sony in which apple has inspired its models.look at the ipod nano is a lumia design.but of course apple get the square design patent..that is insane
Oh well, since people are not really buying htc smartphones due to overhigh prices, low grade tech and stupid self righteous overcoolness, they don't have to worry about paying that much money to apple.
They wanted to be the apple of the android army world, didn't they? Now they got some of that wish coming true. All that hate for overpriced and over'sensed' smartphones. Sense sucks and sucks more RAM than touchwiz and Sony UI put together. Htc bieber!!!!
if I buy HTC phone that means I also pay to apple. no thanks.
I own a HTC phone, but this will be the last one. sorry HTC but you're destroying your company image by doing this.
I am gonna send Vin Diesel to deal with Apple as XXX advernce, if they catch him then I will never buy HTC phones again. The greedy company of the century.
never buy htc again , if i buy i give $6 to apple .. why apple fight every android brand ? they're steal notification scroll from android ..
All the money saved from litigation will neutralize this deal IF they are even paying. I don't think so but we will see.
Apple will fall,whatever they do to survive and for those who think ip5 is faster than s3 they are wrong after JB its benchmark is 1799

Disgusting excuse for a company apple.Just hope that people will realise how greedy and manipulating apple are.Every dog ahs its day and apples will end soon.Nice cop out hyc so long
HTC is not really a big company. Check out the link and see for yourself that the global share was/is a pretty much small number not even 3%. It looks like a marketing hype to show the world that there is a powerful company called HTC which can make settlement deals with Apple. HTC is a dying company on its way to its grave...
Apple, Pirate of the IT Market. this episode is about taking rest of the world. =)) Good Luck Apple and I promise your fall is sooner as you are thinking.
ikkie, 12 Nov 2012That really is A LOT of money per handset. Profits are dwindling for HTC as it is. This may ju... moreYeah mate... couldn't agree with you more. I wonder how a loss making company will survive with this sort of an agreement. Really weird agreement indeed.
Wow Apple is now going to become even richer... 2 bad htc fail again...
Apple.. Pls use your own brain and develop r own technology rather that being in someone others boat.. NOW I HATE HTC PHONES..
