Yea...it is interesting to see Verizon chime in like this...
About a settlement deal...I dont know all the specifics about it but I dont think its just all on Apple to settle. I think Samsung has to also agree to whatever settlement they were to come up with. I remember reading somewhere before the lawsuits, they were in talks about some kinda of settlement or something for months. No agreements could be reached then the lawsuits came.
Unfortunately, until something is changed drastically, I think we are in for more of these patent lawsuits. We have yet to really see what Google plans to do with their newly acquired patents.
I think Verizon is being smart here. It obviously sales a lot of iphones, so that means even apple will watch its step. If apple did pull their product, then thats millions out of its pocket so i dout that would happen. Verizon is just playing as daddy.... smacking the kids because they are arguing. As for a potential settlement between samsung and apple, i dont see it happening. The gloves are off and its not just a particular patent thats just at state. Apples going after the general look and feel of samsungs products. In a settlement wouldnt that mean sammy would admit that its copying apple? 0.o
Seems like this is hinting that Apple's next iPhone on Verizon won't have LTE....
Apple needs VZW. Vzw Doesn't need Apple.
