Observers Korea Times found that the recent talks between Samsung and Apple in July of this year have been curtailed because of the draconian requirements of the company from Cupertino. Samsung allegedly tried to enter the manufacturer of the iPhone and iPad cross-licensing agreement, but the U.S. side demanded that Koreans pay $ 30 for every smartphone sold, and $ 40 – per tablet.
