HTC si Apple incheie o intelegere globala prin care isi licentiaza reciproc tehnologii pentru o perioada de 10 ani

  Apple si HTC aveau deschise cateva zeci de procese in instantele din intreaga lume, insa in cursul noptii trecute ambele companii au publicat comunicate de presa prin care anunta ca au incheiat o intelegere globala prin care isi licentiaza reciproc tehnologii pentru o perioada de 10 ani. Nimeni nu stie ce anume si-au licentiat cele doua companii, sau de ce au ales sa se inteleaga acum, dar cu siguranta vom afla in saptamanile urmatoare detalii, deoarece angajatii implicati vor fi dornici sa isi impartaseasca experienta cu diversi jurnalisti.

  In trecut Apple a avut cateva victorii asupra HTC, insa o intelegere de acest gen este benefica pentru ambele companii si probabil nu este ultima incheiata de catre Apple. Din punctul meu de vedere, intelegerea incheiata de Apple astazi ii ofera posibilitatea de a se concentra mai bine pe procesele impotriva Samsung, cele care sunt cu adevarat importante pentru conducere.
