Apple, HTC ordered to enter settlement discussions

HTC logoThe US District Court of Delaware has ordered Apple and HTC to enter settlement discussions. Judge Sherry Fallon will be moderating the talks, which follow the import ban that has stalled HTC's Evo 4G LTE and One X from entering the US, reports Florian Mueller.

The order requests lawyers from both sides to meet in Delaware on August 28 in an attempt to resolve the ongoing patent dispute. It is improbable that a settlement will be reached, however pressure will be placed on HTC to make some sort of concession, following the International Trade Commission ban on HTC handset imports coming into force. The ITC ban was disclosed on December 19, after a judge determined that the company's messaging and browser apps in Android violated Apple patents.

The HTC One X was released by AT&T and are reportedly running low on stock, with the HTC Evo 4G LTE scheduled for release through Sprint on May 18.
