With only a week ahead of an upcoming contract trial, Apple said it would pay Motorola $1 per unit for any of Apple's units using Motorola wireless patents.
The news of the offer came from FOSS Patents which reported that Apple lawyers made the declaration, according to court documents:
Apple’s actions in both licensing and litigation have matched its words in public. Because of that, Apple is willing to pay the FRAND [(fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory)] rate this Court sets going forward if that rate is less than or equal to $1 per unit for its worldwide sales of covered products.
