In reality, it's probably best when two feuding companies decide to put their differences aside and move forward, but it's certainly a lot less fun.

Additionally, the deal requires that both firms withdraw all patent-related lawsuits filed against each other, and while "additional details" surrounding the exact terms were left undisclosed, we can now safely lay to rest all those outstanding 2G / 3G battles between the two outfits -- and wait for new quarrels to begin, of course.
