The general consensus is that Samsung, and a multiple of other OEMS, really, are a many 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 speedy (though Apple would probably want them in the books even quicker for totally 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 provide us a better idea of where both parties are on things.
