Apple and HTC may have gotten together and worked out an agreement to stop patent litigation between them, but we don’t really know what the exact numbers are. Some analysts did the math after the total deal number and came up with a guess that HTC would be paying $6-8 for each handset, a number that HTC CEO Peter Chou claims is “outrageous.”
“I think that these estimates are baseless and very, very wrong. It is a outrageous number, but I’m not going to comment anything on a specific number. I believe we have a very, very happy settlement and a good ending,” Chou said in a recent interview. Chou would seem to know best since he personally led the negotiations with Apple, but until the official numbers come out the question still lingers of who came out on top of this deal.
