Samsung found to not have willfully infringed Apple's patents - read the full textEver since the jury in the Apple vs. Samsung legal battle decided that Samsung was guilty of infringing upon Apple's patents, the Korean giant has been working hard to reduce the damages that it has to pay Apple, or at least not have them increased. One way to do this was to prove that...

the problem with apple is that they only add only one or two things in the iphone generation its like they are saving the rest for later for example the difference between IPHONE 4 and IPHONE 4S is that iphone 4s has siri and a dual core thats why they struggle so much to prevent siri being ported to iphone4 because of iphone4S would just loose its market

If you source your information from Apple adverts you will make a statement like yours

just before Apple sued Samsung Apple lost to Nokia, IOS fundamentally breached NOKIA patents. Apple is paying Nokia royalties for each device that uses IOS

Do you really think that in 2007 Apple came out with something unique.

The final ruling handed down by Judge KOH will be reviewed by the ITC, so you can bet that she will be seeking to have her judgement ratified rather than overturned .
The $1Bn award should be reduced as it was "emotionally" awarded by the jury,

I say tentatively that some other patents held by Apple have already been declared invalid IN THE USA,

Innovation Apple iphone No microSD no bluetooth so no sharing and definitely NO USB OTG.

As such Apple launches 128GB iPad tablet for £739 reason comes after Microsoft launched its Surface Pro tablet with a 128GB memory. Ipad mini the most expensive tablet

Finally 4G LTE patents reside with Samsung and HTC
the IP5 has 4G LTE for which it does not have licenses to run

when this case is over whatever award Samsung pays Apple, Apple will pay more for not having 4G LTE


"IDC's newest research report claims that by 2016 Microsoft's market share in the smartphone market will be up to 11.4 percent. That may still look small, but it's huge compared to the company's current 2.6 percent share in that business. By comparison, Apple's iOS is expect to grow slightly, from 18.8 percent now to 19.1 percent in 2016."

So if I want a 1.2 Ghz Dual Core processor in my phone I can BUY the SAMSUNG GALAXY S II for a lot less than the IP5

Cheap plastic maybe versus but that is My choice rather than buying a overpriced "memeory card" that I can make calls with

I'm fan of iPhones, but during Cook's administration in the company, Apple has been going less and less innovative. During the Steve Jobs Era, Apple has great innovations that made the famous. Supposedly, I was to buy an iPhone 5, but when I found the Xperia Z, I decided to wait for it because it's better in lots of ways than the iPhone 5. Hopefully, this year, Apple will release a major update for all of their products to bring them back on track.

People bought those devices because they are good devices the worry aspect of the galaxy s was that it looked a bit like a 3gs from a distance the s2 and note don't resemble iPhone at all (apart from they're black and are rectangles with rounded corners)
Also are you implying that everyone who bought the galaxy s s2 our note is gay? I'm sure some are but what does that matter?
Keep your homophobia to yourself. And keep your ridiculous comments to yourself, at least until your pills kick in.

Even this big logo is without taste, as Steve once said about microsoft.

If this were an Apple logo, there would be no visible horizontal bars holding letters.

a patent is a way to protect one companys property... much like a marriage to a man's woman. imagine if one man comes to your doorstep and ask u if he can borrow ur wife and use her. that would be chaos and big trouble. companys would usually and mostly would register his invention in order to protect their interest. so that if anybody use it without their permission, they could always make the opposing party liable... hope everyone with broad mind would understand that

And what about apples chips? Samsung is manufacturing them, and apple designed them. Apple will never make those themselves, Samsung will, for now, until TSMC in Taiwan can take over, and Apple will still design them, no change on that end. The manufacturing transition will take time, so Samsung is still the one.

So they didnt willfully infringe on apples designs, but they willfully copied apples design. Thats still tasteless even if not illegal.

Im so happy that samsung now has a original design, i refused to even consider Galaxy S, S2 and Note 1, because i didnt want an aple copy, i dont like apple, then i dont like apple copies also of course. Its a mystery to me how some samsung fans can say Galaxy S and S2 was good designs when they were iphone copies, do they really love apple that much? Afraid to come out of the closet but dreaming of the day when they, in tears, can hug iphone owners and admit "i was like you guys all along, i just didnt want to confess it, i loved the Galaxy S because it looked like the iphone i always wanted to buy but was afraid of what ppl would not accept my orientation. i never liked girls, i just pretended to".

But back to the point.. Maybe i should thank apple for forcing samsung to get their own design, so i could also buy Samsung. Had a Note 2 for more than 4 months now, this would never have happened had Note 2 looked like Note 1 (which looks like an iphone on "parabolic asteroids" [anabolic steroids]).
