I don't care who wins , im a consumer and I change phones every 6 months, I just look into the best features and the current model and that's it I buy the phone regardless of brand or os.. I'm sure many ppl here change there phones every 6 months or so. So why waste time on who win and who loose. Now the fact is that no matter what you guys say but I have seen and witness with my own eyes that all the far east Asia , Almost half of the Europe , 40% or more in North America and south America , middle east , UAE I have seen Apple I phone is the status and no matter what ppl have to have I phone. I can say this because I go to all these places for my business. By the way I have never owned an I phone . Windows phone yes and Andriod yes. I like htc

Again evidence can still be entered. especially when its vital. one could say apple IS heavily influencing the jury, court, judge, and whole world. Yet here we are.

Call someone who made sense a noob and then make a ramble on something so you look like you know something to try trick people into thinking you make sense........ how mature for someone calling others noobs
Sanjay Chandra, 02 Aug 2012If thats the case , why is samsung using android ? Arent they americans , i mean google.... ... morethat makes absolutely no sense what so ever. and at that rate where would apple be without other companies for them to buy and steel from so there was any harder to even form a device?
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2012Thats not exactly how it all works. First off more evidence can be found and used. its not lik... moreIf new evidence is found it can be presented, but this isn't exactly new evidence, is it? It was in Samsung's records all the time. Why didn't they present it when they had the chance? What was Quinn trying to pull? Also, I said it is "probably" contempt of court. The judge probably used it more as a warning than anything else, but, if it were to be pursued, one could argue that they were trying to influence the jury.
Kalnox, 02 Aug 2012Hmm so this is definitely a case of "a pot calling the kettle black" so to speak. ... moreNot precisely, or rather, precisely not. If Apple were to sue LG for example on phone-design, LG could easily throw forward the LG Prada as their first touchscreen device, being released prior to Apple's iPhone. That makes it prior art. It technically would kill Apples entire operation of trying to ban other devices on the market on basis of looks.
Just because Samsung was working on remotely similar-ish designs doesn't prove they didn't copy them from Apple. Pegging the release date of the iPhone doesn't include Apple's R&D time on the iPhone. A time table that could be beyond Samsung's R&D models shown there. Especially considering for it to have released in 2007 it would have to have been in development long before that. If anything it calls into question elements of industrial espionage.

Marketshare ? What does it really reflect ? Nothing.
Macs are 5% or even less , iOS around 30% from many years on average of ups and downs.All are afraid of profits , apple captures around 60% or more profits , in smartphones and in tablets , thats where everything is reflected.
Consumer reviews are good and consumer reports also very good for apple and followed by HTC in 2nd place , both companies above industrial average consumer satisifaction , while other companies all below industrial average.
If company makes good products and make profits , thats enough , nobody cares about marketshare unless it is nitpicking , if marketshare is really important , apple would have given mac OS to other companies , using same windows model of microsoft but they didnt because they only care about consumer support and profits.They should be closing Macs division and shut down everything if low marketshare is considered as bad thing.
Did u watch google I/O ? They did most part using a Mac.Its not like windows has 95% share , it is superior but every thing has its own pros and cons.

Without android , samsung is another cheap junk company.
You nickname justifies everything.
No One is copying Apple. The handsets and tablets designs have always been squarish/rectangular with curverd edges since the late 90's.
Remember the spv's and mda's and the xda. they are all smartphones that were squarish/rectangular with curverd edged design.
Apple like all american companies are innovators and not creators/creative. They take existing concept and repackage them and the great one Steve jobs even admited. Ipod - is a mp3 player. Itunes - is a legalised version of Napster.
You state that touch screen was patented by Apple, you may remember the out of court settlement that Apple made with Nokia, paying the fin the sum of $26 billion dollars and became a licencee to Nokia for its touch screen usage.
Also I agree the court is bias, you should be able to demonstrate previous designs if the plaintiff claims you've copy there design.
Mmmmh!I really can't say anything,i thinj mr.fanboy has the answer.
What it looks like is that apple is afraid of Sammy evolution in sales... When Jobs passed away (RIP) the greatest mind in the company (Apple) was gone. From now on the inovation and "magic" that surround their products will decrease from time to time.
We all know where this is going.Apple will win,Court is in america,american judges,american brand thay makes millions for the us economy.Case closed due to tje case being jeld in the most corrupt country on earth.Such a shame people can be bought with money rather then facts.
Just look at the Sony Ericsson M600 Body and P900 large touch screen. How similar is the Iphone4?? Look you dont see Mercedes Benz going after all car manufactures just because they invented it first!! Apple are the worlds best marketing company able to take others ideas and sell them well. They have developed some great ideas but really do they think anyone buys a samsung thinking it was an iphone...no, they buy because they want a Samsung.
Iskander, 01 Aug 2012Sad part is, they weren't even first to come with the modern phone like we know smartphones no... moreFlame wars, yeah! :)
"Then of course one can discuss what makes a phone a smartphone. Most idealy, people would say being able to install other apps."
Umm... I could do that on my Siemes S 55 (2002). Still, I wouldn't call that phone a smartphone... ;)
