Samsung, Microsoft Want To End Android Patent Dispute Soon


Samsung Electronics and Microsoft have been in discussions to reach an end to the recent patent dispute related to Android patents.

It loooks like the two companies cannot "afford" a patent war as it would hurt their respective benefits. Microsoft is a client for cloud computing and "Internet of Things," while Microsoft needs Samsung's strength in the smartphone market in order to push its Windows mobile platform.

"The key point is that Microsoft wants to settle the lawsuit and it's no surprise to see that the two technology giants have resumed 'working-level' discussions on how to dismiss lawsuits filed by Microsoft to a New York court," said an official by telephone, Sunday.

The official added the settlement would not take long because the main issue was how to renew terms of details such as royalty payments in return for using patents.

Samsung is being pressurized by royalty payments for Microsoft's 300 Android patents.

Both Samsung and Microsoft declined to comment.
