Providing better and safer technology to customers is more important than winning lawsuits be it any company Apple, MS, LG, Samsung, Qualcomm, Intel, Google, Nokia, Kodak, Sony
this patent war really has to stop, I am a proud owner of SGS II, but I don't like to not be able to buy more devices, because that is monopoly, and then I would pay more for SGS II...
box143, 21 Jun 2012Wow. That would nice if both companies has to decide a merger in the future because they both ... moreNo, that would be horrible. To put it simply, right now Samsung and Apple are the biggest competitors in the smartphone market, they make most profit and sell most phones. To start with they make over 90% of the profits from all phones.
If they were to merge into one company, competing companies will be easily crushed and they would be able to price phones however they want because people won't have a choice. Also they would not even be bothered to work on "awesome technology" you mention because there would be no competition forcing them to innovate to attract customers so they might as well save money on R&D.
So basically we'd end up with an even more arrogant, money grubbing, lazy, boring and uninnovative company than apple has become.
Unless you are in a high position in this company, it is a horrible idea especially for the consumer, it would drive up prices and drive down innovation.
Andriod 18, 21 Jun 2012Go Samsung. Im glad Apple finaly got what they deserve. Apple is over-rated and over-charged.You r right dude
Happy that samsung win the battle. However don't support the thought that both company should merge to provide a good technological handset. Samsung is growing because other competitor like nokia is going down itself by their own policies. However no one can match overall hardware & software quality which apple provide. Apple belong to different class of quality.
Jazzy D, 21 Jun 2012If Mr Steve Jobs was still alive, i am sure apple would have won. Tim cook is nothing compare ... moreIf Steve Jobs was still alive Apple wouldnt be trying to sue everyone for anything they can they would just sit back and try to beat out the competitors the way its supposed to be done, by making better technology.
Mr Maz, 21 Jun 2012yeah and the LG Prada and Samsung F700 both came out before the iPhone. did Apple copy their ... moreReally??
I can't understand why people hear something once & despite it being proven wrong, continue to re-spout the same old crap..
Check your facts.
The LG Prada was announced - January 2007
The iPhone was announced and showcased to the world as a fully working phone - January 2007
The F700 was announced - February 2007
The iPhone was released - July 2007
The F700 was released - December 2007
people can say what they like about their preferences for phones but I do wish they would at least check their facts first so whatever they're saying is truthful....
Zolo, 21 Jun 2012That is a rubbish idea. Samsung would become rubbish if that happened.My idea is just base on harmony. It's possible to have merger of Samsung's mobile phone division with Apple because Samsung has best R&D to create chipset or hardware while Apple concentrates in software development.
Slug, 21 Jun 2012Wow, that could be expensive, as Apple and their fans are very keen on telling everyone, they ... moreYes, I believe Apple will go broke soon after paying Samsung all their money to bail themselves out.
box143, 21 Jun 2012Wow. That would nice if both companies has to decide a merger in the future because they both ... morenah that is not correct, if you have a monopoly type hold on the market there will be no drive to do better
increased competition forces the two companies (and other companies who are trying to join this fight for number one handset) to be more innovative than the rest
so watch the phones that will come out within the year, theyll be epic due the benchmark set by the one x and s3
Apple is the thief who call others thief, and finally got proven Apple is the real thief...God is watching all this!
igottafeeling, 21 Jun 2012I think the floodgates are now open. Both manufacturers will start to deliberately incorporor... moreWow. That would nice if both companies has to decide a merger in the future because they both can make or develop awesome technology.
In such a way, Samsung and Apple stop from claiming from infringement of patents.
Go Samsung. Im glad Apple finaly got what they deserve. Apple is over-rated and over-charged.
suck apple always hide it's own attitude to infringe Samsung rather alledge them back. lose face of apple fan
