I remember how much we all found it sad/hilarious when HTC backed out of the deal when the judge nixed the countersuit.
I also find it sobering that 300 million for patents was considered a good deal.
Remember when 300,000,000$ was alot of money??

It still is a lot of money. Certain companies just have too much money that $300 million isn't much, especially if this deal can allow HTC to create its own graphic chips that would benefit the company in the upcoming years.

Hope HTC produces a powerful graphics solution for its future line up!
And this deal will provide HTC some patents to help it against trolls like Apple!
