Legal "[...] tonight Apple entered into evidence in its trial with Samsung a document showing that it offered the South Korean company a licensing deal on some of its key technologies. Specifically, Apple offered to license the portfolio of patents if Samsung would pay $30 per smartphone and $40 per tablet." $30-40 per device is a lot of money for some trivial features (rounded corners, slide-to-unlock etc). No wonder Samsung declined.

Apple only went after WP7 as an inclusive means of leverage, and it discounted them all the way to $6 a device.

Would Samsung offer purely WP7 devices, Apple wouldn't have the gall to demand such a thing, especially not with the cross licensing agreements Samsung and Microsoft entered.
