Earlier this year we had heard how Apple and Samsung had agreed to meet up to discuss settlement talks. Given that both companies have been duking it out in the courts for the past few years, we’re sure many are hoping that the talks would result in something positive. It didn’t. The reports claimed that the talks had fallen through due to both companies unable to come to an agreement, but it seems that both companies are willing to give it another go ahead of the trial which is scheduled for the 19th of March in the US.
This is according to a recent court document filed to the District Court of the Northern District of California just last Friday. According to the filing, it was noted that both companies had failed to come to an agreement, but also noted that they were willing to give it another go ahead of their trial. It is unclear when Apple and Samsung might reattempt to meet again for talks, but given that the second trial is set for the 19th of March in the US and the 31st of March in the EU, safe to say that whatever talks both companies are planning on having with each other will have to take place pretty soon, and here’s hoping that the second round of talks will be more successful than the first.
