Samsung can pay even 2B$.. and Samsung will continue humiliating the Useless iPhones and iPads. try harder Apple!
oh screw this. apple sued samsung over devices that are mostly phased out. what good will it do when these devices get banned? the GS series is on its 3rd generation! and they're banning 1st and 2nd?
oh well, at least they invoked samsung to create their own design. plus 1 billion!!
samsung fanboy here (used to be)
first of all, Samsung is Much bigger,wide-scaled Company, so there's no question about Apple fearing Samsung, now way, Apple has never evr made phones for jus making-sake and to capture the market,Apple, on the other hand,makes quality phones,not at all sub-standard,most of the samsungs are sub-standard!Samsung providing something to apple is their business,not favour,Pity !Samsung couldnt pull it off!
what's next? apple suing LG for making LG prada exactly like their phone....oh wait...LG prada came out first! who cares...let's sue them anyway! all flat screen tv looks the same, but you don't see sony suing sharp or sharp suing samsung. Yeah, it's only Apple.
Apple sued Samsung because they r threatened by them... simple
As that.... and so they again should be. Unfortunately apple is a massive company that can and has pulled it off..ironic thing is and take note apple fanboys is Samsung supplies apple with a large amount of techtronics for there devices... go figure
How are any of those phones infringing apples rights? The only similarity's with some of them are the same processor.
rami, 28 Aug 2012These so called patents are not inventions! Shouldn’t have been patented it in the first place... moreI guess I should have waited and gotten a truer picture
The "list" Apple have submitted is pictorally the JURORS verdict sheet which has been published on line PDF (sorry no link)
I do hope that the Judge overturns some parts of the verdicts as they ARE cleraly wrong are not supported by facts
FYI in under 3 days the verdict was in, despite the Jurors having a 100 page direction give to them for they to consider
The jurors got it wrong in many part and from what I read had to go back in an instance beore this VERDICT
APPLE have as far as the design goes patented the iphone shape? so depsite SAMSUNG logo on the front it was confusing So phones similarly shaped breached, albeit that iphones DO not have expansion
I do wonder if the 12/09/2012 date launch of the IP5 will now go ahaed as rumours are that this phone Is nearer the SGS3 size than the IP4S size.
I have read some article that the jury has in fact got parts wrong, So IMO the Judge would be able remove those aspects rather than let it go to full appeal so this is where Samsung can re-assert / present
Mike, 28 Aug 2012Samsung to buy Nokia = Impossible It's like saying Kia to buy Mercedes lolhaha. so true.
even blind people could see the amount of iphone clones that came out once iphone 2g came out. all of a sudden all phones had capacitve screens, minimum buttons and big menu icons. same screen size too
davidcopper, 28 Aug 2012Samsung should consider to buy Nokia+blackberry for the patents. Then compile a list that Appl... moreSamsung to buy Nokia = Impossible
It's like saying Kia to buy Mercedes lol
rami, 28 Aug 2012These so called patents are not inventions! Shouldn’t have been patented it in the first place... moreI totally agreed with you. What Apple has patent is not technology but just low class nonsense.
actually i make a plan to buy ipad mini~ but after i saw the arrogant apple. i think we need to boycott apple!!
Apple should stop selling smartphones coz they are doing no good at it and start legal business. Well, keep suing.. it will just increase Samsung's sale coz folks wana get their hands on phones that are not gonna be available anymore..
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2012Oh well... Those are already out going models... Apple don't have the guts to seek ban on the ... moreyup coz amsung r giving hard time to apple only in smartphone section, not in PCs, laptps or netbooks, though these look-a-like thing is more in PC n laptops but they r spared while in smartphones they r way different but apple sue their smartphones thats what apple's monopoly.. i wonder if apple used to make refrigerators, microwave, wahing mchine n other home appliance stuff then we will have only one company for them n thats apple.. thank god the world is saved...
who cares they're all old phones anyway, waaaaaaaaaaay too slow Apple :P
These so called patents are not inventions! Shouldn’t have been patented it in the first place. E.g.; utility patent double tab to zoom is no way an invention that can be patented, it’s a function, if Samsung can do this function with a code of their own , then that’s not patent infringement.
Regarding the shape of the device (design patents), the design features of the iphone 4/4s are what makes it special, read: the full glass cover back and front and the very nice metallic antenna/bezel.. if Samsung copied these then they should pay, but they didn’t! they only made rectangles with round corners which is by no means an iphone unique design feature !!! and their screens are bigger, the buttons number and placement are different, the thickness profile is different! No way a copy
As for homescreens, I admit it, when you go to the application drawer in Samsung, they kinda look like the home screen of ios, but a table of icons on touchscreen forms have been around for many years before the iphone.. besides, Samsung are not using these as homescreens, their homescreens are so much different and more advanced, with scrolling/live wallpapers and widgets, plus the customizations, and the freedom to place icons wherever you want.. this is just an app drawer! And it can be viewed as a list instead of a table if the user choses to!
The only apple patent that Samsung abused in my opinion, is this rubber band end of scrolling effect, and that should be removed from Samsung devices by a simple update.. still I don’t believe this is high end technology that should be patented,
Apple: you are abusing the US patent system, you are not viewed as a high tech innovative company anymore, you made me hate my iphone 4s now and I regret giving you little of my money, I am getting a Samsung note ii
Hey, everyone knows Apple has copied patents, why don't all of the android big guns like Samsung, HTC, Sony, Motorola, LG get together and invite some of yesterday's pioneers in the mobile communications, like Mitsubishi, and kick apple's arse bigtime. Surely all these companies together could wipe apple (the company, not the fruit) off the face of the earth. Samsung, like many other companies put their name/logo on the front of the products, apple's always seems on the back, and what usually ends up coming out of the back of something, S**T!
Oh well... Those are already out going models... Apple don't have the guts to seek ban on the entire samsung range? lol. Im surprised that apple "spared" samsung's range of laptops. They are both portable devices with screen and keyboard, and bears the same shape.
well its not the end of the world also i take it the ban is in the states only ?
