Samsung will not pay 276 million $ .!!!
They will pay 1.05 billion (at least) and they will beat HTC...again!

Where has Sammy paid Apple one dime? Notice the requirement to have PAID, as opposed to awarded. Until payment occurs, an award is like toilet paper....

Yah! Show people HTC is doing right! settle down is the most important.

Apple's arrogance will turn against themselves in the long run. Go Samsung!

Wait for the LTE lawsuit, about 100.000.000 Apple units will be proven a rip-off of that patent.

The iPhone and iPad both use Qualcomm LTE chips. Qualcomm and LG are the major players in LTE patents, and Samsung and Apple are both still in the single digits, percentage-wise, with respect to LTE patents. Samsung would be barking up the wrong tree on LTE patent lawsuits.

I like how everyone assumes that HTC is paying Apple but no one knows the deal be hide it so for all we know that they could be paying nothing. I mean think about it this came after iPhone 5 released and it was said that they as going to sue them for the use of LTE I would think that HTC LTE patents is probably the strongest out of all of them and I think that apple didn't wanna deal with that. That's why I think this deal came. But those are my thoughts and its just an opinion . No-one knows what deal went down but if i had to guess this goes in Favor of HTC because of the timing.

They are paying $276 million up front to Apple, and $6-$8 per handset. It's no secret.
18. young0ne (Posts: 17; Member since: 28 Jul 2012)
there is no fact to that so that's a unreliable source. So try again.

You just stole my heart... lol
Apparently I failed at replying. This was meant for that guy...

I don't really care much about HTC when they choose to side with the enemy by lending their patents to fight against other Android OEMs that are doing battle with apple.
HTC is a sellout and will die a traitor!
25. flamencoguy (Posts: 85; Member since: 04 Aug 2012)
They would not have survived financially if they didn't. Apple doesn't want to pursue them anymore as they are already down. Apple will now point all their guns at Samsung.
At least HTC will survive to fight another day.
Hopefully Samsung and Google can do the job.

That's incorrect. If you click the link in the article you're referring to, it says that $6-8 per handset figures out to the $276 million figure. Here's the link referrenced in the Mashable article you postedhttp://mashable.com/2012/11/12
So you see, they're not paying $276 million AND $6-8, but the $276 million will come from the $6-8 per handset, assuming HTC sells 30-35 million handsets next year.
Reading comprehension, apparently a lost art.

Samsung has the moola and courage to try and hold Apple by the balls so that body follows. Bsically they are interested in ther Advertisement campaign through Court cases ... it has certainly increased their sales. As collateral benifit this could also have few patents invalidated which makes it more profitable to fight ...
