But all of these need a 3G (restrictive data plan!!!) or WiFi/Router in order to work.
In three years of owning a smartphone I've transfered around 50-100 files over BlueTooth v3.0 to around 5-10 different people. BT3 is pretty fast. If you're not near the router it can even go same speed as over WiFi, but if you're transfering to a BT2 device it can go really slow.
Once I've gone for a walk in a park and I transfered a movie in the meantime (no router or 3G needed) :)
And lately I've discovered Fast File Transfer app on Play Store that can make your device act as a router + file web server at the same time. So again no router needed + you can get really really fast speeds (1GB in less than 10minutes and it somewhat works towards iPhones too)! :D

APPLE is just plain greedy. They want to get all the money they can in the world while making crappy phones. Can you imagine iphone's bluetooth doesn't support file transfers??? Even the oldest Nokia and Samsung supports file transfers over bluetooth. Apple need to cut out the corporate greed!!!!!!
Watch out guys - don't try to eat an apple in public - apple will sue you on that because they have patented the fruit

What about the courts of... moreI would imagine that apple are trying to win cases in the biggest markets worldwide,, china, Brazil, Uk, Germany, France, USA, if apple can slow shipments to any of these countries then it is a huge dent in their sales, UK in excess of 60 million people, Germany 80 million, France 65 million, Brazil 200 million, USA 320 million, not much point targeting countries like you mentioned, they simply cannot affect sales.
The "American" software patent system is totally askew. Apple was granted a patent on sliding to unlock a mobile device. but the fact that it existed on an old Windows CE device in 2005 was totally overlooked.
What's going on here is this:
The richest and most powerful company in the world--a company that generates more cash in a day than most companies generate in a year--is suing a competitor for features that, arguably, shouldn't have been patentable in the first place. You copy, I copy, we all copy. FYI Samsung: Apple's iPhone was a Sony Ripoff
Miiike Hunt, 05 Apr 2013Hopefully the round corners one is next to go.Keep laughing. Samsung are going to have to stop selling their phones in the US as they have infringed on an Apple text selection patent.

dm, 05 Apr 2013awesome, it'll encourage more copying between companies and less innovationPeople are adaptable. If no innovation, people still able to live.
I have read here many patents lawsuits settled in a German/US courts. What about the courts of other Countries of this world? What are the opinions of a ,say, Mali court or Syrian court or Cyprus court or North Korean court and others? aha
