Samsung releases internal memo in reaction to “worst scenario” verdict in U.S. trial

by: Chris SmithAugust 27, 2012

Samsung has been dealt a major defeat in the U.S., where the jury in the Apple vs Samsung case found the South Korean company to infringe on several software and design patents and awarded Apple just a little over $1 billion in damages.

According to a report from The Korea Times, the verdict was unexpected by Samsung officials, who saw it as “absolutely the worst scenario” for the company:

Samsung executives were still reeling in shock Sunday, but provided no clear hint on the company’s next move in the showdown with its industry archrival. It’s widely expected that Samsung will appeal, but the outlook for success in the [...]

Galaxy S2, Galaxy S, Droid Charge and Galaxy Prevail among 8 smartphones Apple will try to ban in the U.S.

by: Chris SmithAugust 27, 2012

As soon as the jury’s findings in the U.S. Apple vs Samsung case were made public a few days, and the huge Apple victory became obvious, we wondered what are the potential Android devices made by the South Korean giant and found to be infringing on at least one Apple patent that Apple will try to ban in the region.

At the time we knew Judge Lucy Koh has scheduled a hearing on the matter for September 20, and it looks like Apple’s counsel is moving quite fast, as we already have a list of proposed smartphones that Apple will seek to ban in the country, more than three weeks ahead of that deadline.

The lists includes eight of the 28 [...]

Samsung S3-based Camera in the works, so says rumor

by: Andrew GrushAugust 27, 2012
Samsung Galaxy S III is one of the most powerful and beautiful Android smartphones out on the market today, and yet what if the camera could be even better? Apparently, a new rumor has started suggesting that Samsung might be doing just that with an upcoming Samsung Galaxy S Camera. The rumor started from a tipster reporting to GSMarena, so take it all with a pretty large grain of salt. The camera is supposedly built on the existing S3 design and features a 4.8-inch SuperAMOLED screen, Android ICS, and an impressive 16MP sensor.

Ultra-small PC for under $75? Anything is possible with Android.

by: Andrew GrushAugust 27, 2012
When it comes to Android, most of us think of smartphones and tablets. The truth is that there are a wide range of devices that make use of Google's OS, including the Android Mini PC. Not surprisingly, these things come from China and while they might not be from a well known brand, they pack quite a bit of punch into an ultra-small package. The Android Mini PC is actually the collaboration of several different Chinese companies, and is found on many sites throughout the net with prices varying from as cheap as $50 to as much as $90. Some of these versions have 512MB of RAM, others have a full gig.

Apple vs Samsung verdict: members of the jury share details about $1 billion ruling

by: Chris SmithAugust 27, 2012

Late on Friday the jury in the U.S. Apple vs Samsung trial revealed its findings in the case, and awarded a huge win to Apple, with the iPhone maker winning on almost on counts. Consequently, the jury said Samsung owes Apple just over $1 billion in damages.

We’ve already seen reactions from both Apple and Samsung, but also from Google, and we’ve seen the immediate effects the verdict had on both companies’ traded stock. We’re probably going to see both companies file various motions and try to overturn certain areas of the verdict in the day to come – yes, even Apple will file such motions as the jury found that the Galaxy Tab tablets don’t [...]

7.5% share slump wipes $12 billion off Samsung’s market value

by: Gary SimsAugust 27, 2012

The markets have reacted swiftly to the landmark judgement granted to Apple against Samsung. In heavy trading (around four times the daily average) Samsung’s shares plummeted by 7.5 percent taking more than $12 billion off the electronic giant’s market value. The market is clearly worried that the $1.05 billion in damages ordered by the Californian jury and the prospect of a complete ban of Samsung’s key mobile products will do irreparable damage to the company.

“There are still too many variables including the final ruling to come at least a month from the recent verdict, and whether there will be a sales ban on [...]
