The court-moderated settlement talks that Apple and Samsung agreed to hold will take place on May 21 – 22, according to patent expert Florian Mueller for FOSS Patents. Apple and Samsung chief executives Tim Cook and Gee-Sung Choi respectively, along with lawyers for both companies, will be present in the discussions.

On April 17, I already reported on the fact that Apple and Samsung agreed, under soft pressure from Judge Lucy Koh of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, to meet for court-moderated settlement talks at the level of the CEOs and their chief lawyers. Judge Koh wanted the parties to meet w 90 days. The judge who will oversee this settlement effort, Magistrate Judge Joseph C. Spero, has now scheduled this settlement conference for May 21-22, 2012, starting on each day at 9:30 AM.

While the settlement talks will be moderated by the court, it cannot force the two consumer electronics makers to reach an agreement. But let’s hope that Apple and Samsung can finally settle their differences and focus on creating the latest innovative products and technologies. Apple and Samsung will continue to be competitors in their respective markets, but hopefully they can handle their matters out of the courts in the future.

  Galaxy S III would have implemented quad-core processor, 4.7 inch screen, cameraperformance and the new version of Android OS but no one can confirm the exactspecifications. Last year Samsung Galaxy S II has attracted very many users wanting an iPhone from Apple but chose to nothing and the summer months they gave theSamsung’s time to convince many people that deserve their own terminals purchased.This year we are going through a similar period since the Galaxy S III will most likely beavailable in May-June and iPhone 5 will be released only in the autumn so we haveseveral months has probably Samsung will lead the smartphone market.


Citing people familiar with the situation, the report reveals that top-level executives at both Samsung and Apple have allegedly “communicated lately about potential settlement options.” ”Apple CEO Tim Cook does not seem to share his predecessor’s passion about laying all foes to waste,” author Paul M. Barrett wrote. “Cook appears to view litigation as a necessary evil, not a vehicle of cosmic revenge.”
