That is an outrageous amount of money if true. That's what I was scared of. No wonder Apple called off the dogs for that kind of money. Apple hasn't come to their senses about the lawsuits, that is a flat-out surrender by HTC, and sets a precedent for every Android manufacturer to end up with a similar deal. So that reveals Apples strategy; get paid no matter what phone you buy, and they don't have to worry about any pesky judge or jury going off script. I for one don't see this as good news. I know that HTC doesn't have the deep pockets to fight in court forever like Apple does, but Google should have helped out more.
