Thank you ROGERPJR. Finally somebody who has the facts to support the emotion, unlike the incredibly naive Apple FanBoys.

Here's one... do you think that Apple was the first with a mouse used to point and click. HINT Apple sued MS over stealing "THEIR" LOOK & FEEL. SHOCKAAA!! XEROX found out about this and said WAIT.. We JUST SHOWED you how this works!!! You ( Jobs) and WOZNIAK and a bunch of other kids literally BEGGED us to show you how this works!!!So how is this YOUR IP??? AND XEROX WAS RIGHT.Jobs admits it here I was going to point out the best spots like @second 39-46 and 2-3 more, but the whole thing is good.HE EVEN ADMITS being SHAMELESS about stealing OTHERS IP. XEROX WOULD have been GLAD to hear that BEFORE they showed your their CROWN JEWELS.
PLEASE Go here you'll see under 3.2.1 "adoption" by Apple. APPLE OWES THEIR COMPANY TO XEROX PARC. The MAC wa BORN out of this. Jobs admitted it in the above video. APPLE should sell their product and SPEND TIME DEVELOPING THEIR "borrowed" ip. even THEIR CURRENT OS is BORROWED from the BSD family.By the way. A FINE Dutch newspaper examined the "SCALE" drawings APPLE presented in the EU's court. Guess what?? YEP, APPLE LIED. The Samsung product in question, was misrepresented!! The dimensions were stretched. By enough to get JOBs approval, and slam-dunk Samsung's chances of a FAIR representation. Closer examination was all that was needed. Say APPLE... WHEN YOU LIE IN COURT.. UMMM, THAT's CALLED PERJURY. WHEN YOU DO IT TO HARM ANOTHER AND ESP FOR YOUR GAIN... SLANDER. SAMSUNG GET YOUR ATTORNEYS TO GEAR UP. APPLE SHOULD BE PAYING YOU!!!! BIG TIME!!! SAMSUNG DO YOUR SHAREHOLDERS JUSTICE. SUE THE HELL OUT OF APPLE. PERJURY,+SLANDER = DAMAGES.. IN EVERY COUNTRY!!

Someone is surely biting the Apple and making a dent in it. Apple is afraid that Samsung Galaxy SII will knock off (or should I say already has) iphone share! SII is definitely a better device, miles ahead of iphone4 and worth the money.

Just my two cents. No need to get emotional over this news, evidently Samsung isn't - they'll just find a way around it. And Apple sure isn't, for them its business as usual - patent infringment happens every few weeks.

If its shocking news for you, great, but do try to inform yourselves on the subject, again, patent infringment is as old as the mobile market, simply because technological development is on a higher pace than the legislation to control it...

So please stop emo-trolling, all of you, and educate yourselves.

> In reply to Kiloh3rtz @ 2011-08-25 23:12 from ms0G - click to readFor your information a higher res display isn't necessarily going to be the nicest as well. The Optimus 3d has a cracking display, and there is the small matter of the amoled Samsung displays which were already as good as or even better than retina before they even introduced the 'Super' version for the S2. Of course this is not necessarsily definitive of course as these things tend to involve a lot of subjectivity and I'm not a fanboi like you obviously are.
Where this is going to end. If this judgement stands then surely ios needs an even more fundamental change as thanks to apple now adding/poaching/inventing/copying/infringing/rip­ping off (delete as appropriate) other people's ideas themselve, ios now has a notification bar.
I just wish the morons behind this nonsense on all sides would stop suing each other and get back to innovating and making the buying public their priority.

SG SII, atrix, Evo 3d ( i repeat, 3d) all have higher resolution.

I laugh at all the iPhone and iOS supporters saying it's better than Samsung or other Android powered devices. Samsung copied iPhone??? What a joke this is !!! iPhone 4 can't even video call another brand phone over 3G network, can only video call another iPhone 4 and only over wifi. iPhone 4 has no built radio, iPhone 4 cannot MMS pictures to other phones, iPhone 4 cannot bluetooth sound or video files to other bluetooth enabled devices, iPhone 4 is not Flash enabled, iPhone 4 only accepts music files through iTunes,... the list goes on and on. These are all basic things that other low end smart phones can easily do let alone Android powered beasts like the Samsung Galaxy S2 which has a Dual Core CPU launched at least 6 months before iPhone 5 is launched. Face it, Apple is afraid of Samsung and Android hence why Apple is behaving like it is... Apple grow up and accept you are not the best and face up to your competition by prouducing better products.
