This is how the next Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets will look like

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 27, 2012
In view of the recent court verdict rendering Samsung guilty of infringing on Apple's design patents, observers and industry pundits have predicted what Samsung's next batch of tablets and smartphones will look like. Since Samsung has already accused Apple of monopolizing "rectangles with rounded corners," the company is likely to take a radical approach to design.

Apple vs Samsung verdict: Android devices to ban after Apple $1 billion win in U.S. court

by: Chris SmithAugust 25, 2012

Earlier today we told you that Apple has obtained a huge victory in its U.S. case against Samsung, with the latter being delivered a devastating defeat – not because of the $1 billion in damages awarded to Apple, which can be considered pocket change by Samsung compared to its profits from the mobile business, but because what the victory means for Apple, the whole mobile ecosystem, and, most importantly, consumers.

Sure, Samsung may fight the verdict in further appeals, but Apple will also do some appealing of its own, and try to obtain various injunctions in the U.S. against the Samsung products found to be infringing at least one of [...]

Huge Samsung defeat – what caused Apple’s $1 billion win in U.S. patent case [full verdict]

by: Chris SmithAugust 25, 2012

You probably know by now that Samsung has just gotten its ass kicked by Apple in court in San Jose, California, in one of the most important patent legal conflicts of our times, and in one of the most important patent fights between the two, with Apple in a war that spans across four continents, with more than 50 cases filed in 10 countries so far.

The unexpectedly fast verdict was filed on late-Friday, and it heavily contradicts the findings of a South Korean court in a similar case. That court said that both sides infringe on the other’s patents and awarded damages in the thousands for each party.

But the jury in this first U.S. [...]

Apple’s $1 billion patent win against Samsung: first thoughts

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 25, 2012
In light of the court's decision, and the points presented by both Apple and Samsung, what clearly comes to light is the role of patents in innovation, and the extent to which businesses can take liberties at existing intellectual property and work these to their own goals. We weigh in with our thoughts, with the focus of whether the verdict can result in better innovation for Android and the smartphone industry in the long run.

Samsung opens Apple-like store in Sydney, coincidentally almost next to an Apple retail store

by: Chris SmithAugust 24, 2012

Image Credit: SMH

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 [...]

Apple wants to prevent real competition with such lawsuits, Samsung says in closing argument

by: Chris SmithAugust 21, 2012

Once Apple made its last stand in front of the jury earlier today, it was time for Samsung’s lawyers to step up to the plate and deliver their closing arguments, and it was Charles Verhoeven the attorney chosen for the task at hand.

And if you liked what you saw in Apple’s closing arguments then you’ll find Samsung’s grand finale a bit boring, as the company tried to go after certain Apple witnesses and dismantle their testimonies in order to make its case one more time, that it didn’t copy Apple, rather than focusing more on its own allegations that it’s Apple that infringed Samsung patents.

Competition in the market place

Samsung was iPhone’s biggest fan and copied it, says Apple in closing argument

by: Chris SmithAugust 21, 2012

After four weeks of fierce fighting in the U.S. Apple vs Samsung case, we have reached the closing arguments phase that’s taking place today in Judge Lucy Koh’s court. After that, the jury will have to decide the fate of Apple and Samsung, after deliberating on each party’s patent claims and filling in the 20-page verdict form that looks like a complex math test.

Apple started the closing arguments session, with Samsung coming up next – after that, each party will have time to counter some of the opposition’s claims as presented today.

The Verge covered live both Apple’s and Samsung’s closing arguments, and we’re going to take a look [...]

Samsung vs. Apple: Peace talks have failed

by: nathanAugust 21, 2012
The best news we could give you about the latest developments in the ongoing Samsung-Apple trial is: It's almost over. The CEO's from both companies have met but have not yielded anything worthwhile to present to the court. The court-mandated meeting was a valiant effort but nonetheless, closing arguments start tomorrow.
