This is completely nonsense... why would they want to fight and not work together? I know this is really about business, but it's better to have a friend than an enemy, right?
Best of luck Samsung, for setting an example on how to waste time.
And anyone dreaming about an iPhone ban, I'm requesting you kids to watch Inception first. It's not only one dram, but one under another and another and another and.....
iPhone 5 does not use microUSB! Instead it, they plan to put in package some (once again) adapter cable.
BUT THIS WAS NOT EU REGULATION IDEA!!!
Idea was, that there will be only one standard charger connector and others Samsung, HTC, LG, NOKIA made their phone by this law.
I think that this will be easy case to ban iPhone for EU market because they are thinking that they are over the others! Ha-haa-haaa!!!
If rotten fruits are so great, why they don't manufacture a single component?
Wait.. They're planning on attacking Android Jellybean's core functionality. I genuinely hope the people at Apple really know what their doing (I mean, since the genius that was running the place is now dead, my hopes aren't too high).
This isn't an exaggeration, Motorola has enough patents to sue everyone (at least at a licencing level) and win (More or less).
They have a technology pedigree that's really beyond comparison (They created cellular phones and most of the protocols that govern them). They are a real deal R&D company. I'm not too sure that its a smart thing to attack Google directly seeing as they own Motorola and can if they wanted, sue the entire world so to speak..
Choosing to play that card is like opening a box of chocolates "You never know what your're gonna get".
And i'm not sure Apple is going to be at all pleased with what they find.. R.I.P in advance..
I say good on Samsung, Apple patents slabs with screens and these manufactures patent wireless communications. To be fair the amount of investment in LTE far far far exceeds that of icons and a brick with a screen.
Again goes to show how much Apple freeloads off of other people technologies. They got turned down due to 3G being a “standard” wireless communication yet a brick with a screen is not standard? WTF lucy have you lost your marbles!! LTE is not a wireless standard and many companies invested billions of dollars then Apple comes along and freeloads off them. Yeah they deserve everything they get!
Samsung are a truly pathetic copycat company who have no chance against Apple.. All they will get for their trouble will be a hefty legal bill and a generous portion of humble pie. Even if they did manage to get a ban on the iPhone 5, I'd rather stick with an older iPhone than buy one of Samsung's cheap bits of plastic Galaxy sissy 3s.. Face it Samsung geeks, we are on the eve of witnessing Apple crushing their own sales records with the iPhone 5 and leaving all of the competition for dust.. My prediction for the near future: five years from now Apple will buy Samsung, close them down, and convert their offices into their ping pong rooms.
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2012lol! ios 6 did returned ios to stone age while android 4.1 is the max that nobody till now rea... morehail samsung and hail google? are you for real? samsung doesn't do anything but make screens. everything else is just bits and pieces of everyone else's technology. they modify here and there and put it together and claim they've come up with something "ggenious". and funny thing is, all thier products a medocre...
thier tv's a medocre, thier phone's a medocre, thier computers are crap.. etc. meanwhile, all the other companies dominate in something or the other.
in terms of software power and capability.. apple and microsoft are Software Giants!!! google is like a dried up turdddd in front of them.
... hail microsoft. hail nokia.
Again and again !!! Both don't deserve the title of leader, iphone is less than 6 years of age and pretend to own most patents that already exist since more than 10 years, if Nokia start suing, both will have to pay billions ! Where's the fairplay? why fighting like a kid for some 1 to 5 millions when they already own more than 10 billions. such a shame........
Oh do one Samsung. No one cares about your copycat plastic products. Grow a pair and do something innovative for once if your lives. So much money in the bank and all they do is copy Apple and then cry like a bitch when Apple knocks you down
sam-dung, 20 Sep 2012samsung is a joke! what a stupid company. And all the sansung fanboys were saying apple is j... morelte technology needed money and time for development. Square icons in grid is only a logical thing, without any research
dominic, 20 Sep 2012are you on drugs??? samsung has filed more law suits then any other company! and said it was u... moreonly one country was where apple won is where the patent office literally sits on apple lap ...all other countries across the world the application was not valid check your knowledge before you start talking ...the iphone may have been innovative phone when launched now is just the most marketed product ...i am not a person who likes samsung but i would prefer a samsung over apple any day of the month and twice on weekday...people need to understand that dont just talk crap...samsung has the right to defend itself ...i personally would prefer a 820 or 920 lumia phones than anything else
Apple will get sued by all the major mobile manufactures over LTE. HTC have already begun, Motorola and Nokia will follow soon and obviously Samsung. These are the companies that developed and sponsored 3G and 4G LTE. Samsung owns 10% of the global patents. And as LTE is not currently covered by FRAND Apples use of this technology requires a payment.
what goes around, comes around.... GOOD! though i hope it'll be a different judge this time around!
GS2, 20 Sep 2012Go Samsung go.... Please ban IPhone....enough of INonsense... :) what APPLE did to you?they are making good quality products as Nokia,BlackBerry,Sony not cheep plastic:HTC,Samsung etc.
a this and a that .. dum dum.. apple rocks ...... and samsung is a lame duck in putrid waste of slimy electronic waste..
