I wonder if they will sell it to Apple now that it has been established that the IP belongs to someone else.

I don't think the question is so much whether this is wrong / right, but how does Apple proceed from here?

What kind of price could be negotiated?

Will Gradiente take it, or is the confusion worth more?

My understanding is that Gradiente only released their phone to prop up the ip claim who's registration was running out. The whole point for them has always been to get a fat check from Apple and it looks like they will. Apple is no stranger to writing checks for their tendency to run roughshod over other people's IP. That's not exactly what happened here but, like with the ipad in China mark, I imagine they'll end up writing a hefty 8 digit check for the iphone in Brazil rights.
