Apple ready to call it quits, wants to negotiate patent deal with Samsung and Motorola

Over the past year Apple has targeted just about every major Android manufacturer and hit them with patent lawsuits. It has mostly been slow progress, and the wins for both sides are about even as of now. Apple is looking to call it quits, at least with two manufacturers. Apple has been very strict with the lawsuits, not looking to settle, preferring the ban devices instead. They are now opening up negotiations, and are willing to settle with Samsung and Motorola.

The settlement won’t be cheap, as Apple is asking for $5-$15 for every Android handset sold by either manufacturer. Despite being one of the richest companies in the world, they will stop at m=nothing to increase their wealth. However, it does go against what Steve Jobs said about destroying Android. What do you think about Apple’s latest move? Do you think Motorola and Samsung will agree? Tell us what you think in the comments!
