The U.S. Apple vs Samsung lawsuit, in which the jury found Samsung to infringe on several Apple patents and awarded the iPhone maker over $1 billion in compensation, is casting a long shadow over IFA 2012, the Berlin-based trade show where Samsung has unveiled several new products, including the Android-based Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy Camera.

But while we talk about these new Android devices, as well as other Android devices officially announced during the show, we inevitably hear more details, commentary and analysis on Samsung’s recently lost legal spat.

Now CNET offers a sneak peak at Apple’s legal bill in the [...]

TSMC turns down both Apple and Qualcomm exclusivity deals

by: James Paguyo IIIAugust 30, 2012
So how is Apple actually planning to spend the $1B that it will get from Samsung ? Apparently it has offered TSMC almost exactly that same sum in exchange for exclusive access to the latter's chip production capabilities. Qualcomm made a similar offer, but TSMC has turned both of them down!

China: Lenovo sold more smartphones than Apple in Q2 2012, Samsung still on top

by: Mike AndriciAugust 30, 2012
As far as the American and European markets are concerned, Lenovo might not be a considered a well-known smartphone manufacturer. But according to a recent study, the Chinese company was the second most successful smartphone manufacturer in its home country during the second quarter of 2012, with a market share of 11% of all Chinese smartphone sales in the second quarter. For Lenovo, this is most-welcome progress, as it only ranked seventh in Q1 2012 rankings.

How to pay $1 billion to Apple? Pack 20 billion nickel coins in 30 Samsung delivery trucks

by: Chris SmithAugust 30, 2012

In the wake of the recent verdict in the U.S. Apple vs Samsung trial, we’ve seen lots of commentary and analysis on Samsung’s major defeat against its most important rival in the mobile space, which also happens to be an important business partner.

Therefore, it’s time for some more humor on the matter – don’t get us wrong, Samsung still faces hard times ahead, as such a disastrous defeat can’t be completely overturned in courts, and the war between the two sides is far from over – as we all need a break from such serious things from time to time.

Paperblog reports that Samsung is ready to pay Apple in full the over $1 [...]

Burn! Galaxy S3 outsold the iPhone 4S in the US after trial verdict

by: AdrianAugust 30, 2012
In a very ironical twist of events, it seems that Samsung sales in the US (particularly sales of the S3) have been boosted in the wake of the trial’s verdict, while Apple sales have plummeted.

Samsung still has to pay the piper, but when?

by: nathanAugust 29, 2012
It looks as if at least 8 devices have been put on the banned list courtesy of Apple. On Dec 6th, the ongoing saga between Samsung and Apple should come to a close. This gives time for Samsung to catch their breath ad draw up a new game plan. In doing that, it also delays the effects of Apple's stupendous legal victory.

Apple $1 billion court win causes resale market to overflow with Samsung devices, prices drop

by: Chris SmithAugust 28, 2012

The recently obtained $1 billion win for the iPhone maker in the U.S. Apple vs Samsung trial has all sorts of ripple effects that capture the attention of the media. While Samsung is determined to continue to fight Apple in court despite this “worst scenario” for the South Korean Android device maker, there are side effects that are already felt.

A few days ago we reported that after the verdict was made public, Samsung’s market cap dropped $12 billion. Now we hear that the second-hand smartphone market also has to suffer following the Apple win.

MarketWatch reports that Gazelle.com registered a 50% increase in Samsung smartphones [...]

by: Simon HillAugust 28, 2012
Despite the recent Apple vs Samsung trial, Samsung will still supply many of the parts used in the construction of Apple's iPhone and iPad lines. The patent dispute will take a backseat to mutual profits.
