Apple says "Mercy" in visual voicemail lawsuit

Back in December 2007 it was reported that Klausner Technologies was suing Apple and others for stealing its patent on visual voicemail.

Today, Reuters is reporting that Apple will finally settle and license its patents on the technology. Details of the deal were not disclosed, but I’m sure it’s less than the $360 million suit originally filed against Apple and AT&T, I think.

It was also reported that Klausner was trying to work out deals with Comcast and Cablevision to use the technology, but we’ll have to wait and see how those pan out.
