Apple Learns That Suing A Key Supplier May Not Be So Smart; Samsung Jacks Up Prices On Apple
from the oh-look-at-that dept
According to the report, Apple buys all APs used for production of iPhone and iPad from Samsung Electronics with the volume estimated to be 130 million units last year and more than 200 million units this year.So even if Samsung has to pay Apple for patent infringement, perhaps it'll be financed by the higher prices on processors Samsung sells Apple.
Samsung Electronics has a long-term contract to supply APs to Apple until 2014, the report added.
Maybe, next time, instead of suing each other, they could just focus on building products people like and letting the market sort the rest out.
