Anonymous, 14 Jun 2011Poor Nokia trying to get some money from everywhere now Your saying Nokia is getting money from everyone? Talk about Apple taking on every company? It's like WW2 where Germany tried to take on nearly every country but in the end failed.
"It's good to see arrogant Apple get a taste of its own medicine."
Amen to that!
Especially how Apple ripped off some devs with iOS 5. But I have a feeling that there is going to be a nice settlement, and all this will be a publicity stunt (like all Apple related is).
"Nokia and Apple now FRIENDS???"
Yeah, I'm a little suspicious too, maybe user "Nokia Rocks" was right.
[deleted post]GUI and mouse... lol XEROX
not even gonna go on about the rest.
You need a history lesson.
Anonymous, 15 Jun 2011You know following your example, Apple cut off Nokia's hand with a lightsaber, and he died rig... moreNo he didnt die in that scene when Vader said that he was Lukes father. Luke jumped down the ventilation shaft and got left hanging uppside down outside the floating city. Then he got picked up by Han Solo and the Millenium Falcon after communicating with Leia through telepathy.
Nokia is still Vader! And Millenium Falcon was Samsung.
I totally agree with the statement, that Android copied from Nokia, but ppl who say, they copied from Apple are simply said DUMB. They just think it is a copy of iOS, because it seems like their brains were washed when the first iPhone came out, because they cannot remember, what was before, if you believe it or not, there were Cell Phones before the iPhone, which actually really worked, even without Apple Tech.
On the other hand I want to hear from someone else, how you could possibly create an OS without Icons, did Apple really invent the Icon for a smartphone? Was it all textbased before? Appleboys actually really think that way, at least they make everyone else think that way. Nokia is the true inventor, Apple really did nothing special, just the first with some fancy animations in their Apps. And no, Apple invented the Appstore, but they werent the first OS who had Apps.
Apple is the only one, who actually tries to steal some of those inventions and call them their own and all Applebees believe it. I mean, cmon Volkswagen doesnt sue Toyota for having 4-Wheeled manufactured and you know why, because they werent the first who used 4-wheeled cars.
And if it comes to best or not, someone should finally tell me the huge advantages of iOS over Android, because all i see is non improvement of iOS at all and Android made huge steps the past years, like WP7 probably will do too if we give it some time. Reason for Apple having no improvement at all is, because Googles Chef left Apple and since then Apple has no innovation anymore. iOS 5 comes out soon and brings only stuff good ol' Nokia could do on Symbian S60v5 already. Open your eyes guys... At the end I have to say, I like iOS, really I do, but what I hate is people always giving totally wrong info to others about iOS and that it is the best of all, I really cant see why, I can't even think of one thing in iOS, which is better than on Android, but please, prove me wrong, give me some examples and non of these Copy crap or company sueing another one. I want to hear what is better in iOS than on all other devices, that couldnt be toooooo hard with all those Applebees here.
Just so we clear once more Nokia saw they are going down and wanted to get something so ALL ANDROID and iOS ppl(me inclued) read this and then make your statment Apple sucks Android rulezzz here it is:
What of Google’s Android system, which now leads in smartphone market share? Pundits predict Apple’s settlement paves the way for Nokia to also sue HTC, Samsung, and other handset makers for violations of the same patents.
And it here it’s worth noting that Microsoft, following a similar strategy, reportedly earned more from license fees paid by the Android phone makers it sued for patent violation than it did from its own Windows phone platform.
Apple also has filed patent violations against the Android handset makers.
So my dear android fans as you can all Read and see the biggest copy of it all it is idd android already lost a lawsuit with microsoft and soon apple and nokia to come so enjoy it while it least
Ok ok so what apple copy from nokia,all android copy from apple and so all iOS and Android are copy of nokia?I saw several ppl saying that apple has active mic and apple can hear what you talk...My dear android noob here is the real fact acutly google had 2-3 lawsuits cuz of the gps and active mic who was sending info to there datebase....So if u want some1 to pull the head off some1 else ass it should be YOU...1st of all no1 gives 1 cent if apple or android are better or if all copy from symbina...I dont as a user all i care is better and better phones
Just so we are clear here is the deal:Nokia made ovi sotre aka copy of appstore for symbina android made android market same copy....1st and 1st phones who ever had a games/programs center was Sony-Ericsson they acutly still have it its called play now look into it
As far as the rest goes if apple makes a microchip phone all will cuz not cuz they care or not if its good as long as it sells and ppl buy it there will always be copys or at least lets say a model of inspiration for other manufacuters....Stop the android is better apple is worste no apple is better no nokia is no1 cares whos better or not...Peaople want cuttingedge tech and who can deliver that will be best...P.S:Galaxy S II heats up like hell and also have plastic covers and cost more or = to an iphone 4 wich on the other hand has signal issues...Chose your destiny noob android fan
nokia and apple are very different from each otner, wherein apple focuses on functionality, and nokia on price friendly but still packing features on each devices. .both gian companies has proven itself to the world, creating the best phones money can buy. .

Anonymous, 15 Jun 2011You know, the SGS is so customizeable, that it is actually a lot more, but no copy of an iPhon... morei dont like apple, but design wise, samsung is trying to copy apple.
just look at bada os
on the other hand, all these new androids are ugly as hell
[deleted post]I guess you are Nokia fanboy but you should check the history of this dispute , Apple wanted to pay but Nokia wanted more money than others had to pay, stop dreaming about Nokia being good and Apple all evil, both are same bad
Anonymous, 15 Jun 2011maybe Steve was a Nokia fan, but Steve created a revolution phone.meanwhile Nokia as the no 1 ... moreRevolution is never more mightier than Creation. Revolution would never exist without Creation. Nokia created the GSM phone, Nokia set the high standard for cameras in phones. Nokia founded the widget based OS you today call iOS and 100 other more stuff in all phones. For ever phone Apple makes there will always a big part of Nokia in them and for every phone Apple makes Nokia will take royalty for using their stuff. You can run Steve, but you can not hide. Yesterday Nokia told Apple in court "Luke, i am your father".... Apple screamed noooooooo...
Anonymous, 15 Jun 2011Dude, you are accusing Samsung of copying iOS when in fact iOS is total rip off from Symbian S... moremaybe Steve was a Nokia fan, but Steve created a revolution phone.meanwhile Nokia as the no 1 can't makes a phone to compete iPhone.
this is the fact and this a shame ..
AnonD-3575, 14 Jun 2011its funny because people bash the iphone
and then buy sgs which is a blatant copy
not to men... moreYou know, the SGS is so customizeable, that it is actually a lot more, but no copy of an iPhone, by the way, it uses android and not iOS and the Toucwiz Launcher might look slightly like an iPhone, but only in the Appdrawer, you see, the Appdrawer is just a small part of the launcher and if you use a different launcher there is no resemblence at all.
iPhone users actually never even try to understand how Android works, like they are completely blinded and that a SGS is ahead of an iPhone, so if it is still a copy, I like a copy, if it is actually better than the original...
You know what really funny is? If someone would find out, that the iPhones microphone is always activated and sends all what you say at any time to Apple, so they know all about you, iPhone users are so careless, that they would actually try to argue something good into it...
The Finnish phone-maker Nokia could receive a one-off payment of more than €800m (£700m) from Apple and receive further royalties of €8 per iPhone sold in future, after winning a long-running patents case.
The company subsequently hinted that it may pursue makers of smartphones using Google's Android mobile operating system, of which 36m were sold in the first quarter of 2011.
The settlement signed on Tuesday related to patents for mobile technology that helped Apple to revolutionise the phone industry in 2007 when it launched the first iPhone.
Although terms of the settlement were not disclosed, previous patent licensing deals in the phone industry have been worth up to 5% of the price of the device involved. At €8, or $11.50 (£7), they would represent about 4.5% of the estimated average $264 cost price of an iPhone, which Apple sells to retailers and phone networks for an average of $660. Apple has sold 108m iPhones since their launch.

Where do you think Steve got the idea? He was using Nokia 7710 years before the release of Iphone. Get your head out of Apples ass.
Steve was a big fan and a user of Nokia before 2007, he said so himself on many occasions and is even seen on many pictures before 2007 with various Nokia devices.
Or do you suggest that the CEO of Apple was using Windows Mobile? Or running to a phone booth with coins evertime he had to make a call.
Symbian and Windows Mobile were the only complete smartphone OS on the market before 2007.
