Well, just over a billion dollars isn't enough for Apple, who has filed with the courts to take an additional $700 million dollars from Samsung. When will this end? If Apple continues to follow the misguided anger of their former leader, until Android is dead.
iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy Note – video comparison
Apple's latest iPhone 5 is already available in its initial markets, and in the words of my colleague Darcy LaCouvee, it truly is an engineering marvel. And that's coming from a die-hard Android fan. After all, the iPhone 5 won against the Samsung Galaxy S3 in our drop tests. But not everyone is going to drop their phone from ear-level on a cobbled Hong Kong pavemenet. Let's see how well the iPhone 5 stacks up against another flagship smartphone -- this time, the Samsing Galaxy Note. While we're sure this won't exactly be an apples-to-apples comparison, we will look at the benefits and disadvantages of each device.
iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy Nexus – video comparison
As you already know, yesterday was iPhone 5 day. The new iOS smartphone was launched in nine countries and will roll out in 100 markets by the end of the year. Naturally, the device will be compared to every existing and upcoming high-end smartphone. In fact, we have a few such comparisons ourselves featuring the iPhone 5 against some of the hottest Android handsets available (and yes, they include video).
It’s been a tough time lately for Samsung in the ongoing legal war against Apple, with the Android phone maker losing patent battle after battle. But while the losses have been painful, particularly the one from California in late August, the bigger picture is still not as gloomy for Sammy as some are trying to paint it.
Apple vs Samsung trial: iPhone maker to ask for $3 billion in damages or triple the jury’s findings
In late August Samsung suffered a crushing defeat in its first U.S. trial against Apple. The jury in the case found that several Android handsets infringe up to 6 out of the 7 patents Apple brought into play, and decided to award the iPhone maker $1.05 billion in damages. Moreover, Samsung was found to have willfully infringed on those Apple patents.
Judge Koh: Sales ban for Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to remain in place
Samsung attacked the iPhone 5 by releasing a print ad titled “It doesn’t take a genius,” which did not take long to become viral. Nobody expected Apple to officially respond to the ad, but the “fanboys” quickly came to the rescue, albeit with not much success (or logic, or common sense). Now there’s a new “ad” ready to become viral, coming from Nokia fans (or maybe Windows Phone fans).
Apple wins patent case filed by Samsung with the ITC
It looks like Samsung's legal woes are not over. After a California district court decided in favor of Apple this August and charged Samsung $1 billion in damages, Samsung's pending case with the International Trade Commission (ITC) has also been ruled in favor of Apple.
