It doesn’t really help your case against Apple – in which you argue that you don’t just copy/follow the iPhone maker’s lead in whatever it’s doing – if you’re going to open your own Samsung store that looks very much like an Apple store very close to an Apple store.

But that’s what happened in Sydney, where Samsung unveiled its own store in which consumers can walk in and interact with its smart devices, from Smart TVs to computers to tablets and smartphones, with the obvious emphasis on the last two kinds of products.

Then again, if you’re familiar with Steve Jobs and his obsession for opening Apple retail stores – [...]

South Korean court rules that Samsung did not copy the iPhone

by: Gary SimsAugust 24, 2012

Trying to keep track of who is suing who in the mobile industry is hard enough. But trying to keep track of which countries the suits are being filed in, is enough to make your head hurt. Currently Apple is in a legal battle with most of the major Android OEMs including HTC, Samsung and Motorola (aka Google). The biggest battle is with Samsung where injunctions have been filed in Australia and in Europe (specifically in Germany and the Netherlands) and where Apple has had some measure of success in blocking the sales of a variety of Samsung devices. On top of this, Apple and Samsung are battling it out in South Korea and of course in the [...]

by: Gary SimsAugust 24, 2012

Vizio’s exceptionally priced $99 Google TV set top box started shipping a few days ago and the iFixit team have got their hands on one. In traditional but brilliant iFixit way, the team takes apart the device bit by bit and finds out what makes this little power box tick.

Kindle Fire 2 event scheduled for September 6, is Amazon in a hurry to launch it before the iPad Mini?

by: Chris SmithAugust 24, 2012

With the launch of the original Kindle Fire, it became clear that there’s an obvious market for budge-friendly but content-filled 7-inch tablets. Google soon saw the Amazon threat to its fragile Android ecosystem that was already taking a beating from the iPad, and pulled all the stops to make the Nexus 7, a Kindle Fire killer – which is exactly what the device is, and then some.

But Amazon will not stop making Kindle Fire tablets. In fact, long before the late June Nexus 7 announcement we’ve seen a garden variety of Kindle Fire 2 rumors, with Amazon rumored to release more than one Android-based device – the company is said to consider [...]
