and that is what pisses Apple off. They put their eggs in one basket and decided to sue their partner that they depend on. Especially since Samsung owns the new display Apple uses, and owns 12% of the LTE chip that Apple uses. Apple is in no place to be demanding more money. Samsung should just stop producing the displays.
Except that Samsung makes a ton of money by producing those components, so for them to stop producing them for Apple would mean a HUGE loss for them. It goes both ways. Both of these companies need eachother.
I love Apple products but I must say this is getting to be a bit much. I'd love to see both companies shut up and start innovating again instead of just suing the competition.
How much is Samsung's contract making Apple parts? If Samsung loss Apple's contract I don't think it's going to hurt Samsung at all. Isn't true that Samsung subsidiaries companies generate more income than Samsung Electronic?
Samsung Heavy Industries signed $50 billion dollars contract with Royal Dutch Shell for the next 15 years. Samsung has 6.6 billion dollar deal to build Salar energy. Samsung has 18 billion dollars contract to build buclear power plants for UAE.
