This has been sayed thousand times, android winning because low/mid Price android phones and because almost every phones has android nowdays. So it's obviously that android is winning.
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2011the guy who wrote the article on foss patent blog has a boner for apple. just like how he kept... moreAndroid guys... Cant hear anything against Android that now you have started lammenting about the author??? Go home and dont come back here if you cant read what is just an opinion of the author.. Or maybe a fact...
Why is everyone dissing apple, not a fanboy but if you look, they're doing pretty well for themselves.
Plus android came out after iOS so please stop saying who copied who.
Apple like to do things their way, other people do things a different way.
There are benefits to both OS'one runs well, the other is quite buggy (in my experience)
Its like GHZ race again. All the droids are going for power to run android while Apple is about the software so everything runs nice and efficiently without needing all this beasty power for the same effect.
How about you just read the article and then leave it alone without hating...
Apple scared iPhone 5 cannot complete with the competition no new hardware just the same square bollocks design relying on applications limited with options claiming high price for a cheap plastic made in China ....
the guy who wrote the article on foss patent blog has a boner for apple. just like how he kept implying apple was going to win the lawsuit case against samsung yet it was found apple FORGED the evidence and just about all patent claims by apple was dismissed in netherlands courts.
Apple hates progress.They are suing Android because it's better than iOS (also, Why now? Why not like 5 years ago when Android isn't BIG yet?)
WHy dont they just invest all their time and effort on improving their crappy iOS instead?
WHAT A JOKE
apple is claiming that android originated from apple LOL
Oh apple, why won't you say? hahaha
I am here to inform everyone that this is a scam on Apple's part. There has been much debate on the matter, and there is much information that has not yet been released for the public, but this information is not 100% correct. The connection of the patent and the creation of Android have nothing to do with each other. Android kernal and creation was, is, and will always be original creation, and has not infringed any patent at all. Everyone at Apple are great people, and they have come a very long way with their own original and incredible technology. Yet, they are worried so much about their main competition, Android, that they are trying to pull every string they can to pull Android down because they are jealous that there is better technology that allows users to freely do what they want with it, and the fact that Android software is just plain better in every single way. The fact of the matter is, that since Apple's IOS has been in the market, with its changes and updates, Android has since pulled strong with making Apple suffer, because Android has been just a little smarter every step of the way. As Apple's IOS makes software and changes, Android takes a leap ahead and makes something better, and this has become and on going occurance. Every time Android does this, Apple suffers, then they try all they can to come up with ideas to take Android down, which in reality, is infringement of Android's right to be a step ahead. That's simple competition, period. Apple just has a hard time accepting that, and originally, they had planned to always be the leader in mobile technology ever since the original iPhone. Since that plan failed, they feel they have to make their competition suffer by filing lawsuits with everyone in "hopes" to take eveyone down, and pick back up with their original plan. It's really sad. Look at it this way, for example, a boy grows up to be an incredible ball player, and came a long way to gain the skill that he has, but one day, another boy sees this success and thinks to himself that he would like to make his own success in the same field, so he does, and he sees how successful the first boy had become, and thinks to himself that he wants to be that good too, but plans to be even better. So the second boy does it, he became better than the first boy, now as the best. The first boy becomes jealous and upset at the second boy, and begins to accuse the second boy of stealing the spotlight from him. The second boy takes action by sayiny, "Look, I only saw how good you are, and I wanted to be that good, but only better, so I became that good and better. There's no crime in that." That's good clean, healthy competition. The same goes with Apple, being like the first boy, and Android being the second boy. Android has been that smart in taking a further step of Apple as time goes on, no infringement, just inginuity and creativity, and a goal to be the best. If Apple wanted to be the best, and if they were, they would be. That's why Android has been so successful, because they have done things right to rightfully gain their incredible lead in the market. It didn't take long, but it took a lot to get where they are, and for Apple to accuse Android of infringement is nothing short of a joke, honestly, and truthfully. It's been nothing but an ongoing war, and it finally needs to end, as we are all hoping, and Apple just needs to calm down, put their pens down and throw away any pointlessly useless thoughts of lawsuits, and just forget about trying to pull Android down, and either just accept that Android has taken very honorable leaps in the market ahead of them. Apple can either go on making a bad name for crying about everything......OR, accept it all and lay low, OR accept it and actually do someting about it by not sueing, but actually making a REAL physical effort to becoming the best in the competition like Android has.
Android has, and has only, looked at the technology that has been out there, and took the ideas, and made better ones. Why can't Apple finally figure that out, and do the same thing? The world may never know. Thank you all for your time.

Someone, 03 Sep 2011Couple of points in your post.
Apple throwing crap at customers?? Hardly - have you seen ho... moreThe bigger they are, the harder they fall!
Apple with their overpriced iPhones and iPads and..., will probably very soon face bankruptcy, just as the gigantic Nokia is desperatly close to bankruptcy if WP7 fails, and WP7 is still so bad and developed so slow that it inevitably will fail. Apple know that their only chance to survive is if they can use their "patents", like the rectangular shape with rounded corners and swiping between pictures i gallery..., to make all competitors "illegal" almost all around the world!
Apple says Android is mine?!!!
well, smile... Apple has been eaten by the robot.
No matter how much apple crib of.... The reality is.... Android is winning and will win till the time its open and fulfills the customer's need. People love freedom and they get with android. If apple thinks that by doing so they can get more customer's...then they are wrong. Because even if android doesnt exist i would never ever go to apple and would never allow anyone to by an apple product. GROW UP APPLE.FIGHT WITH GOOD PRODUCTS AND NOT LAWSUITS... THIS IS EVEN FOR MICROSOFT.... MICROSOFT IS A TODDLER AT THE MOMENT. COME OUT OF EGG AND SHOW WHAT YOU GOT AND THEN WE MAY THINK ABOUT IT....

Apple throwing crap at customers?? Hardly - have you seen how high Apple's Official Customer Satisfaction figures are? Highest in the insudtry.
Android winning? Maybe, but Apple is hardly losing are they? Have you seen just how many iPhone's, iPad's and iPod Touch's sell around the world?? There's a reason why they are the NUMBER ONE company in the world.
Now stop and think for a minute. If you created something and got a patent to protect what you created, then you saw someone else using the same thing that you created. What would you do??
This just show that the whole patent-system is the problem, it is all about money for the greedy, but at the same time against development and progress of mankind. Capitalism, and its "patentsystem", is based on greed, and not the free sharing of knowledge and ideas to improve the lives of everyone! Mankind should be able to find a better system than Capitalism, we should all work together not against each other in courts...
AnonD-20221, 03 Sep 2011To those lammenting about iOS copying Android's notification bar, take this....i think d notification bar came from meego not android
this is bad from Apple, any one will use his past experience in the job, if they want they must reset the brain of any employee leaving Apple.
