Samsung's JK Shin says the company won't settle with Apple like HTC, see you in court
Asked if Samsung will settle with Apple like HTC did over the weekend, J.K. Shin, the Samsung Electronics chief, said in an interview “It may be true that HTC may have agreed to pay 300 billion won (US$276 million) to Apple, but we don’t intend to (negotiate) at all.

Samsung has been determined liable for north of $1 billion by a US jury in the tech trial of the decade with Apple, and Cupertino intends to ask for even more. The Koreans are appealing the decision, though, and the next hearing is scheduled for December 6, so this story is far from over yet.

Apple has suffered setbacks in the patent fight in the UK, Japan and the Netherlands already, but the eventual monetary damage from those is negligible in comparison with what Samsung has to pay if it settles, hence we are gearing up for the next leg in this trial saga.
