    • Seppo Sahrakorpi: "a U.S. import ban against HTC's Android devices is reasonably likely" unless HTC agrees to pay royalties to Nokia

    • pklow: "As a result, it appears very difficult for Google and HTC to deny infringement at the trial (which will start in two months' time), "

    • Colaolli: Think about if Nokia gets royalty income from every_single_android phone sold. That would be shiploads of cash

    • Seppo Sahrakorpi: @pklow Yes, but interestingly enough both Apple and Nokia have been reducing their dependence on Samsung as a supplier.
