Strange, the Galaxy S II (I9100) range are not affected.
All those people saying this is just another patent dispute - yeah, another one out of the how many filed by Apple in the last few days against Samsung? Only a true iOS lover would not be able to see that Apple desperately wants to hurt Samsung. Why? One only has to look at the recent sales of the Galaxy S II. That Android phone proves how strong Android is today - 3 million units sold in 55 days, and it hasn't even launched in the US yet. The iPhone 4 sold 3 million in just under a month, and by then it was launched in most markets. The US is a huge smartphone market, and the launch of the Galaxy S II in the US could replicate the iPhone 4's success.
The only reason the iPhone series sells so much is because they're the only legit phones with iOS. I can imagine if Samsung's Galaxy series were the only phones with Android - there's a huge chance that they would sell almost just as well.
Right now, the Galaxy series is the closest competitor to the iPhone series in terms of sales - you can't deny facts. And Apple knows this.
My god what is it with apple, they make the crappest phone imo, and just want to crush the opposition. They'll be suing any company who makes a phone with a screen and buttons next.
Maybe if apple can get all the other brands banned, people will have to buy iphones.
Iphone, the smartphone for dumb people.
All this will make Galaxy more Desirable in US. This Tactics is sure to Back Fire.
dan, 08 Jul 2011If iphones are doin really well, y would they want galaxy models ban here in the states??? Eit... moreThe iPhones ARE doing well. The patent dispute has nothing to do with the performance of the iPhone in terms of sales, popularity, and satisfaction. The patent dispute... its about patent infringement. If I'm not mistaken Microsoft and Nokia are also going after Samsung. I think those articles were on here as well.
tute, 08 Jul 201155 reason i can give you why apple trying to band samsung.
1. apple got ass kicked b... more1 - Apple most certainly never got its ass kicked by Samsung. Apple ranks number 1 in customer satisfaction for its iPhones, well above the industry average while Samsung's score is below the industry average.
2 - Samsung has only ever sold ONE phone in its history that has been more than 30 million units. And it was not an Android device. It was a widely accepted feature phone called the S5230... better known as the Samsung Star.
As you can see the only companies to ever sell 60 million or more of one device is Nokia and Motorola.
60 million in one day? Incorrect... VERY incorrect.
[deleted post]Its not at all about being a cry baby. Its about one company infringing on another's patent rights. Take note - everybody's been filing complaints against everybody!
Go Galaxy S! !
Sun, 07 Jul 2011 Nobody in this industry are angels,but I do believe Apple are the worst! Android is threaten... morehardly. android is not cutting into apple's market share. apple's share, just like android's, keeps increasing. its rim, windows, symbian, and others that are beating eaten.
there have been articles here showing this data.
Apple is just scared that Samsung is dominating in its own home land! Cry baby
obviously the other brand is scared of competition.
.that's right. there are those EXACT replica of iPhone made in China but Apple is doing nothing about it. They are just concentrating on Samsung because they know that they are losing against them.
If iphones are doin really well, y would they want galaxy models ban here in the states??? Either way, obviously they feel scared and threatened...disappointing apple...just come up with another one and stop WHINING AND COMPLAINING!!!THATS Y I DONT BUY IPHONES.....NICE BUT OVERRATED AND OVER PRICED.....
Apple trys way's to stop the competition,...I think we had enough of everything that's "I" (iphone,ipod bla bla bla) cheap technology for lot's of money , ain't working
apple is afraid of growing android... if they low the price of their devices more people will choose their product. Apple is a good phone and a good product... but low in specifications... the best thing to choose from devices is not the product name.. they are looking for great specs. with lots of useful things and with the great performance. android do that.. they give the needs of every person... and thats great.. thats why people choose android rather than iphone..
55 reason i can give you why apple trying to band samsung.
1. apple got ass kicked by samsung
2. samsung sold 60 million in one day
and you know the rest.....
Laurynas, 07 Jul 2011Agree.galaxy will beat iphone at anymoment
Anonymous, 07 Jul 2011really apple scares about Samsung productsi will buy galaxy over i-phone at any day
How Stupid man. I try to stay nutral but it seems like Apple is asking for too much. I think they are retarded. Samsung is just doing its thing. Dont mind them. And i dont think that the infuse 4g is a variant of the SGS first gen.
