samsung did not copy the ipad

Oh, sweet irony… Remember last week’s decision by UK judge Colin Birss who ruled that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab is “not as cool” as the iPad, and not infringing on Apple’s designs?

Well,... as it turns out, there is some major insult added to the injury for Apple. According to Bloomberg, Judge Birss ordered the Cupertino-based maker of the iPad to publicly acknowledge that Samsung has not copied i...

Remember the days when all Android manufacturers combined couldn’t beat the iPhone sales? Believe it or not, that was only 2 years ago, in 2010. Then Android manufacturers... finally beat Apple’s iPhone sales a little later that year, but we’re starting to see even single Android manufacturers selling almost twice as many devices in Q2 compared to Apple.

A U.S. appeals court has temporarily lifted the ban on the sale of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. The smartphone is now available again directly from Google via its Play Store. However, the reprieve might... be short lived, as the court said the stay on the injunction will remain only while it considers Apple’s arguments. The court gave Apple until July 12th to respond.

This latest decision is part of...

So far, we’ve only had all Android manufacturers combined beat Apple when it comes to smartphone sales. They do it by a significant number every quarter (around twice the number of iPhone... sales or so), but it’s still all of them together against Apple. However, with every iteration of the Galaxy S series, Samsung gets closer and closer to selling as many Galaxy S devices as Apple is...

The more we talk about flagship mobile devices, whether smartphone or tablets, the more we inadvertently end up analyzing the legal battles they generate between... some of the most important players in the mobile business. And obviously, the most important patent-based legal conflict is currently being fought between Apple and Android, although other companies...

A few days ago, U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh issued a verdict favorable to Apple in its U.S. patent-based lawsuit against Samsung – the second one in just... a few days – granting the iPhone maker a sales ban – again, the second one in just a few days.

Just as expected, Samsung has appealed the decision asking the judge to stay the Galaxy Nexus...
