When it comes to Androids there are many other great choices. Any Android against the Iphone per sales is not just against the Iphone, but every other Android out there. Or WP, Symbian what ever you are comparing.

You were correct about the case money too. Because winning $3 billion from a company bought stuff from gets you all your money back from buying stuff. Plus you get to sell it over priced.

Actually you are incorrect, Samsung is number 10 on worlds largest companies list and apple is number 18.
Smart phones are only a part of what Samsung manufacture. You must have forgotten about TV's, DVD, fridges, medical equipment, the list goes on, they even make cranes for gods sake.

For me, one shouldn't wish Samsung or Apple to win. One should wish that the courts and judges deliberate carefully, and deliver a carefully assessed judgment. Wishing for any other thing, would indicate bias no? So let the courts do their job.

Those who truly enjoy Samsung products are not who I am talking about, the same way Apple fans were unfairly labeled as sheep previously. I am referring to the new Samsung fanboys who now display the very same thing Apple fanboys used to be called out for, blind defensiveness, their company can do no wrong, and total superiority complex.

Therefore, I adjust my statement to read, Samsung 'fanboys' are the new sheep.

First they patented rectangular and rounded corners, then now they patented slide to unlock, haahhaaaaaahahu. Didn't that features come from Neonode N1 phone in 2006 before the iphone ???

Apple is so lame suing for something that is already existing and trying to own them. The jury who favored this ruling are dumb muggles. Have you ever wondered where the idea of the slide to unlock came from and not just looking at apple filing inappropriate patents? It existed way long nefore cellphones are even invented its just how you apply it. There is no more sense on this patents now because big companies are abusing it.
