Tomi, 07 Mar 2014If you think is truth ... funny that Motorola never sued Samsung ... all said.Samsung was a regional bit player at that time. Why waste money on them.
Dot-WiFi, 07 Mar 2014apple found around 70 ... at that time , apple not do what sam do.. did sam build pc that time... moreApple is the world's second-largest information technology company by revenue after Samsung Electronics, and the world's third-largest mobile phone maker after Samsung and Nokia.

Tomi, 07 Mar 2014So then seems like 100+ mobile phone companies copied Motorola... I agree, someone has to be f... moreUm, no. They literally bought a bunch of Motorola phones to copy. That's the point. Samsung has a history of copying others. I'm not talking about using or licensing technology.
I actually see more Samsung trolls on here who think Samsung comes up with, or builds, everything in their phones. My recent favorite is Air touch. Haha. They actually think that's Samsung's technology.
mixa, 06 Mar 2014Samsung has just lost all their profit they made from all their Galaxy phones until S3 incl.Are you stupid enough to really believe that the total profit of Samsung Mobile division from the start up until the GS3 is only the equivalent of 930mil?
Have you looked at Samsung stocks lately?
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2014Lol. Samsung copied Motorola at that time. Their first phone in 1986 was a failure. They bou... moreSo then seems like 100+ mobile phone companies copied Motorola... I agree, someone has to be first, but suing somebody for funny thinks is shame !!! Do not want to defend Samsung or others, if they did wrong step, they have to pay for it, only hate iphone fan trolls whos think Apple invented and made the first mobile phone in Universe !
I think most of the people have not read the article here. Remember when samsung paid apple 1 billion in 30 trucks filled with 5 cents? Now samsung opened a new case telling that 1 billion was too much so the jury lowered to 930 million, so now apple has to give back 70 million to samsung. It not like samsung paid 2 billion to apple.
Now talking about apple not copy, how about the new ios7? They copied android in every aspect. Better saying that copied all android versions samsung+htc+lg+sony... So all these companies should sue apple
autumnsunset, 06 Mar 2014The vast majority of those who declare not to "consider" an Apple product are people... moreOnly reason I would never get an Apple phone is due to quality.
The only Apple product I would consider is the Mac Book Pro 17 inch from 2011, that was a quality product.
Apple has been king of cell phones for a while, now that they have had security issues they are slowly being taken down.
Same can be said for any company, for example look at Microsoft. When their servers started to spit malware out a few years back Apple saw a surge in customers, when Apple had their security issues Microsoft had an influx of customers.
It's the same with phones, after people saw that the Iphone's could easily be cracked into even with that finger print scanner (NYPD did this) people left Apple and went to Samsung.
The free market does a lot of choice, this lawsuit won't really matter in the long run since it hasn't done much to resolve the market issues.
Samsung can still sell phones, Apple got 930 million out of it.
dks, 07 Mar 2014Guys do you think Apple might sue Samsung for fingerprint scanner as wellNO ... they can not buy patent for something like fingerprint scanner and same with to implement camera, flash, waterproof, speaker, thermometer, hand blender, whisk ... etc ;-)
Tomi, 07 Mar 2014Nokia made first car mobile phone 1983 so not big difference and if you know about technology ... moreLol. Samsung copied Motorola at that time. Their first phone in 1986 was a failure. They bought a bunch of Motorola phones, copied and then came out with their own after that. Samsung has a long history of copying and unethical practices. My first point still stands. They are now trying to bully Nokia into paying higher prices for patents using dirty, unethical tactics.
Guys do you think Apple might sue Samsung for fingerprint scanner as well
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2014Nokia made phones before Samsung ever did. Now Samsung is trying dirty tricks to bully Nokia ... moreNokia made first car mobile phone 1983 so not big difference and if you know about technology you understand that they both must working on it long time parallely coz some trolls might even said that Samsung copy Nokia that time, but business wasnt that widely common so not really chance to copy that quick ... Nokia, Motorola, Ericsson, Samsung ... etc begin hard mobile phone's work !
Since 2007 Samsung made over 100 billions with Galaxy S lines, 930 millions fine seem like a bargain.
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2014Nokia made phones before Samsung ever did. Now Samsung is trying dirty tricks to bully Nokia ... moreI think he meant Samsung made mobile phones 11 years before Apple got into phone market.
Huawei P6 looks exactly like iphone, why don't apple sue them? They don't care for small companies, they are scared from samsung only because it sells better.
Samsung Mobile has been around since 1983. Samsung Mobile's parent company, Samsung Electronics, was founded in 1969. Samsung Mobile's first ever offering was a car phone it introduced in 1986.In 1993,Samsung Mobile released the SH-700 series, which boasted a smaller and sleeker design and better sound quality. Where was APPLE that time .... hahahaha
