    Many of us still bleed in green when it comes to HTC. Seeing the company that grew with us through our geek years into financial distress is just heart breaking. That said, it seems that the company was really doing something bolder than just reaching an agreement with Apple recently. After years of legal battles between the two, they've finally reached consensus on how to handle products in the future, and even though it's estimated that HTC will pay Apple $6 to $8 per smartphone sold, Peter Chou has dismissed the exact amount. We do know that the legal battles did enough harm to HTC's ...
