This is their last chance. There will be a phone call between the two CEO’s, Tim Cook of Apple and Kwon Oh Hyun of Samsung. There will be one final push for negotiations before the court steps in and the jury takes matters into their own hands. Apple wants $2.75 billion dollars in damages and lost sales. Samsung wants a (comparatively) meager $400 million in royalties for patents.
If this doesn’t work out (and I can’t imagine it will, they’ve taken firm stances and invested too much just to settle now), the jury deliberations could start as early as tomorrow. Then it’s up to the jury to decide their fate. Let’s hope they make a good decision.
