Apple (AAPL -1.5%) and Samsung (SSNLF.PK) are still holding patent settlement talks, but there's no sign a resolution is near, the WSJ reports, citing sources and legal docs. The companies have reportedly held face-to-face talks in Seoul and drafted a memorandum of understanding about a deal in February, but discussions appear to have faltered afterwards. Apple and its top rival/component supplier continue to battle in the U.S. (via the ITC and federal courts), Europe, Japan, and elsewhere. An Apple/HTC licensing deal was reached last November.
