Does anyone know the legal argument as to why Samsung haven't been allowed to use the slides in question? From a purely common sense point of view I can't see any reason why they haven't been able to use them as evidence.
Don't get me wrong, I have an iphone and I love it and , having listened to the various claims by Apple for so long, I thought Samsung wouldn't have a leg to stand on. I was of the opinion that they would be able to offer up nothing at all until I saw these concept images.
It was always going to be difficult to win against Apple in America. Surely the photos blatantly disprove what Apple say but if the judge continues to dissallow such supporting evidence then do we really have a level playing field here?
Secondly Apple have admitted copying 3g patents in the past under the FRAND concept (Google it) and the mind boggles as to how, by definition, you can include complicated 3g technology under this heading but not the rectangle!
That's the iPhone prototype? I say Sony should sue Apple. Nothing to do with Samsung.
so why samsunk not give their prototype earlier... rather than they look up for sony design first.. your prototype rendering isn't finished yet ?? =D
even samsung already making that prototype design earlier... why they not launched it? are they sitting and waiting for market reaction for phone without button design.. because worry that gonna be failure design ?
Iskander, 01 Aug 2012Sad part is, they weren't even first to come with the modern phone like we know smartphones no... moreHmm so this is definitely a case of "a pot calling the kettle black" so to speak.
Apple tries to slap patent infringements on samsung while there are other companies ripping their "design" that are left un-bothered, why? Cause as long as those other companies' products arent competing close enough with apple's products apple doesn't care about them lol.
They only try to fry the big fish....which in this case is samsung....samsung should be flattered that they are intimidating apple so much.
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2012why is the judge not taking any of that as evidence ? is she a apple fans or something ?? It's because Samsung were too late to produce such blueprints, especially ONLY after Apple did. If Samsung knew they were innocent from the beginning, they should have released the blueprint long time ago. It is indeed very suspicious. Who knows that Samsung just made up this thing the day before the trial?
Samsung should ask for a mistrial or have the judge removed from the case.
[deleted post]apple initiated suit against sammy, not the other way. So, who is afraid of whom? :)
itsn't about apple and samsung its about chinese and manchu there is no way manchu company wins again chinese judge lol
bla bla bla.
stop the argument.
im not an apple fan and not also a samsung fan but apple should face it, samsung is leading in the market and android is progressively taking thier thrown. To make it fair play, why did they do something new or diff to make their sales boost not just by doing some court trials.
Apple can sue all they want, a huge chunk of their products are made by Samsung, so is it really a APPLE phone. Itz going to take them a while to not be dependent on Samsung for some parts
These patent wars as much as they make petty sense what would happen if all company's decided ok we stop making components for others what would happen then. Apple are innovators Samsung are currently leading the way and soon others will follow.
[deleted post]Get your next grand ready? iPhone 5 or iPhone 4GS will be release in end Sept 2012 or earlier.
Apple is such a sore loser of a company... They fear competition so they sue their competitors...over "innovations" that they supposedly "invented" (stole) the last technological innovation they contributed to the wireless industry was the ACCELEROMETER in the 3G/3Gs (do your research. Anything else they claim to invent already existed beforehand.... Nobody is trying to mimic them, yet Apple wants to play dirty.
Samsung, stop making cheap flimsy phones!!!
GO HTC LOL jk
[deleted post]you mean limited function os that uses less cause its capable of less. and that was marketing scam. no os perfecting utilizes multi cores yet. Net even pc's.
Came up with something new???? As stated they did not invent rectangles or rounded edges.
And how can you deny evidence like that???? Oh well this shows proof that not only apple makes rectangles. There is no way we can let them use this proof. It would bring truth into the case. NO! be gone with ye truthful evidence
that iPhone is a little similar to sony ericsson satio, but at least Apple has the imagination to make it more beautiful, unlike Samsung Apple don't have their logo on air conditioners and washers... They're focused on bringing the best in what they do.
