Anonymous, 21 Sep 2012all we need is Sony,Xerox & Samsung to counter sue Apple and really they will feel it!! SONY is soul of innovations in electornics
dominic, 21 Sep 2012then apple came and blew them all away with their technology!!! yes there were touch screens a... moreThats true. All respect to Steve jobs for his innovation. RIP. But I think the Iphone idea had died with Steve and now there isn't anything new. The hype about purchasing the new Iphone 5 has nothing different. Same camera as the Iphone 4S. So in reality they have just made it lighter and have stretched it, added an extra row to the home screen and a panoramic feature to the camera. So I must as well have purchased a 4S which is cheaper. Well its up to how people want to spend their money and this new iphone is definitely too expensive for what its worth.
M@i20, 21 Sep 2012Apple’s greed has caused all this suing/counter suing action.. To the Crapple of today, what d... moreapple has 1 "one" phone!! android has ugh how many.. sony, htc, moto, lg, samsung, and many other companys... so obviously there are going to be more androids specially the "lower" end devices that majority of the people can afford! so u can't judge those %'s by apple vs android!, because the ratio doesn't even compare, one company, one phone, to 6 companys, 10 different phones each.. so considering android is leading in the market share world, they should be, and should have more of a percentage considering how many different devices they have out there.. so for apple to be 2nd, realistically apple is number one if you do the math
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2012I too beg to differ with you. I had the se p900 back then and it was Symbian uiq that was a... morethen apple came and blew them all away with their technology!!! yes there were touch screens and gadgets bla bla bla but it was shit, touch screen sucked, they were slow, clunky, laggy, most had many issues.. so regardless they were "in the mists of redesigning" their product apple came out and showed all these dummys how a phone is made and how, smooth, well organized and well put together a phone should be!!! then what happened. all the other companies came out with same size phones! wanting to make the same designed phone, the sliding side to side to different appts, functions, etc... so lets me real.. if it wasn't for apple phones these days would not be at the level they are at!! might have some of the ideas and technology but nothing to what it is now.
US jury and judge are the world's foolishest person. Once again they will get fooled by Apple. LOL.
Where are the (Cr)Apple fanboys who says iOS have quality? See the new maps app from (Cr)Apple, too many complaints coming out.
SaGR, 21 Sep 2012I am an Apple Fan, not because of the name, but because of its functionality, trust me I have ... moreu r fan of apple for it's functionality!!!!! is this a joke???? u have used high end android phone? u r one of those users who doesn't know about functionality; so pls don't talk about it. learn to use android then comment. i don't need to trust u. i have both apple and android in my hand right now.
Apple will always be the leading company in innovations, samsung should accept that. No need of fighting over that.
People who have an iPhone will defiantly praise it, for nothing, truth is Sammy's Galaxy S3 is better than iPhone 4s, and it has all the hardware's already which new iPhone 5 has now.
when rotten fruit comes around.... android goes around.... just like marry goes around.... round and round....
"Judge Koh, who is in charge of the lawsuit, will hold a hearing on Wednesday"
KOH?! Oh, no!
She's an Apple fanboy... Samsung is screwed!
Apple’s greed has caused all this suing/counter suing action.. To the Crapple of today, what did they think? Samsung would just roll over and die? Apples underlying cause for this is they want world dominance, and they are just plain threatened by Android and they hate them.
IDC’s latest Q3 numbers show, Android has 68% market share World wide. Apple’s iOS comes in at second place with a mere 17%, RIM’s BlackBerry comes in at 4.8%, Symbian at 4.4%, and Microsoft’s Windows Phone is in last place at 3.5%.
There is no doubt that Apple has infringed on Samsung's patents. They knew they were doing it as well - which is why the last iPhone wasn't LTE. Sadly for them - they will learn the hard way - that patent law works both ways. Look for Samsung to ban the iPhone and iPad from US and European sales. Then maybe they can come a mutual agreement and use each other's technology which they should have done from the get go.. Then everyone will win, especially the consumer who ultimately pays for every cent all the big cooperates in the word have in the first place.
Apple to Crapple in in a blink of a eye!! They are killing the fundamental spirit and culture that Steve Jobs built Apple on, one of which for example was.. “CREATIVITY LEADS TO INNOVATIVE IDEAS… LEADS TO BREAKTHROUGHS THAT OTHERS MAY HAVE MISSED. BROADENING YOUR EXPERIENCE ALSO MEANS SEEKING INSPIRATION FROM OTHER INDUSTRIES”..
midas84, 21 Sep 2012There was really no need for you to correct the comment from Babara so rudely. You should have... moreHis reply was not rude at all. If you think he is being rude on his reply then YOU are rude
iPhone Fanboy, 21 Sep 2012Sammy should not sue Apple because Apple is Samsung major customer. Customer is always right!The customer is dumb who is refered to in your case as Apple. This clarifies you as strange. Not sure what point you're making.
first teething problems for the Apple Iphone 5. The maps direct you to a different place and they have also wiped out historic places in the UK and replaced them with old fast food restaurants. lol. More complains to come.
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2012I beg to differ. The 1st iphone was nothing.
i had my p910 phone back then. That phone was ... moreI too beg to differ with you.
I had the se p900 back then and it was Symbian uiq that was already staring to be abandoned. I also remember thinking that apple hadn't invented the touchscreen too. But only a fool would think that the uiq experience was anywhere near the iPhone experience.. It was full of tiny menus that even the stylus struggled to select..
Also I never said they invented anything. I said they revolutionised the market. Look at every phone before the iPhone then all the phones since..htc started to try and make windows look better with their touch flo interface on the diamond and touch hd. Samsung introduced touch wiz on the i900. Windows itself updated to 6.5 to try and regain lost market share and Nokia came up with the n97 to make an easy to use touchscreen. Sony Ericsson withdrew from uiq after the failed p990 and stuck with windows with their own tiled interface on top until the advent of android.
Blackberry were always at that time serious business centric devices that didn't care a jot about the consumer market (their failed attempt at that came much later with the flopped storm)..
Blind hatred of apple won't change the facts that the first iPhone took the smartphone market by storm and caused all the other players to sit up and take note and seriously up their games..
I'm not saying anything about what they ripped off as the way it was implemented before was way off how the iPhone implemented it. They took the tech and made it infinitely better. This appealed to the mass public and the smartphone market burgeoned as a result.
Half the android users today would never have gone near a winmo device of old. Smartphones would still be niche products for geeks only.. Nowadays it's harder to find a feature phone in a store than a smartphone.
