South Korean courts postpone Apple vs. Samsung verdict

by: Andrew GrushAugust 10, 2012
While most of the attention in the Apple-Samsung patent war is focused on the high-profile case in California, the South Korean media recently anticipated a ruling in their own country over patent infringement. In a turn of events, the court announced that it had decided to hold off announcing the verdict for "procedural reasons." No explanation was given, although the judges involved in the case are more than likely waiting to see what happens in the American proceedings before making their own decision.

Trial reveals Samsung and Apple U.S. sales figures

by: Simon HillAugust 10, 2012

One great side effect of the Apple vs Samsung trial is that all sorts of juicy details and secrets are revealed. Exact sales figures for all the different models can be difficult to come by, but yesterday we got a look at the U.S. sales figures for Samsung and Apple. You’ll never guess what Samsung’s top selling phone was. Go on, have a guess.

If you somehow managed to divine the answer as the Samsung Galaxy Prevail carried by Boost Mobile, then give yourself a pat on the back. This budget Android smartphone topped the chart, but that’s because of Samsung’s habit of offering slightly different versions of the same phone on different carriers under different names. If [...]

Chitika web analytics: Samsung Galaxy S3 increases share of online traffic

by: Simon HillAugust 9, 2012

Samsung’s current flagship Android smartphone is the Galaxy S3 and it is performing rather well for them. Analytics company, Chitika, just released some statistics showing the swift growth in the Galaxy S3’s mobile Web traffic share. The device now accounts for 11.23 percent of all Samsung smartphone Web usage. Considering it only launched in the UK on May 29, and was released in various other markets around the world in the weeks that followed, you can get some idea of how fast the device is selling.

Samsung sold over 10 million Galaxy S3 units in the first couple of months after the end of May release and it is expected to sell over 40 million units by the end of the [...]

Who will win the Apple vs Samsung patent war? And what’s next?

by: Simon HillAugust 8, 2012

Where did it all go wrong? Apple and Samsung were once the perfect couple, but it seems theirs was a marriage of convenience. A long, drawn-out, and deeply bitter divorce has seen the gloves come off, as these two tech giants trade blows in courtrooms across the globe. The patent war has been going on for so long now that you’d be forgiven for feeling a bit bored with the whole thing. But wait a minute, I beg your indulgence, have you considered what would happen if one of them actually emerged victorious? Let’s speculate wildly.

In the beginning

In the early years things were rosy. Samsung manufactured memory chips and Apple bought them. [...]

Best Buy survey: malfunction, not confusion, was the primary reason customers returned the Galaxy Tab

by: AdrianAugust 8, 2012

As childish as they might seem to most of us, the legal quarrels between Apple and Samsung, Motorola and Microsoft, HTC and Apple and so on and so forth do have one thing going for them. In their attempt to avoid injunctions, bans, or financial penalties, the involved parties need to pull out all stops, meaning we get access to all kinds of exclusive or novel information, which might have never become public otherwise.

Less than a couple of weeks ago, we heard that Apple was preparing a heavy blow against Samsung to prove the design similarities between the iPad and the Galaxy Tab 10.1, and also the company’s financial losses caused by the infringement. Sammy was [...]

Galaxy S should be more like the iPhone, 132-page 2010 Samsung report tells jurors

by: Chris SmithAugust 8, 2012

We saw yesterday a Samsung internal memo in which it was detailed a February 2010 executive meeting. During the meeting, Samsung’s chief of mobile JK Shin made it clear to everyone that the iPhone is the new enemy, not Nokia, and that Samsung should adapt to the new requirements and create flagship devices that are more like the iPhone, a product very popular with carriers and customers.

At the time, the Galaxy S was not even announced yet – Samsung unveiled it weeks later, at CTIA 2010 – and Apple’s flagship device was the iPhone 3GS, with the iPhone 4 launching in June of that year.

While that piece of evidence, which Samsung fought [...]

Susan Kare testimony: iPhone vs Galaxy icons, visual impression and personal confusion

by: Chris SmithAugust 7, 2012

It’s another day in the U.S. Apple vs Samsung trial and we have a new interesting testimony to look at, via The Verge which was once again on location. After Phil Shiller and Scott Forstall, both high-ranked Apple executives, took the witness box last week it’s now time to look at a design expert’s testimony regarding the graphic design similarities and differences between iPhone and Galaxy devices.

We’re talking about former Apple employee, Dr. Susan Kare – she was a Macintosh Artist between 1982 and 1986, and since then she worked with various companies including Microsoft and Facebook.

Apple’s counsel brought Kare in to show the [...]

Samsung attacks Apple in court for destroying, tampering with evidence

by: Chris SmithAugust 7, 2012

With just a few days to go until the U.S. Apple vs Samsung patent case kicked off, Samsung was awarded yet another unfavorable verdict in the region, as a Magistrate Judge granted Apple an “adverse inference” motion against the Korean company, which means that the jury had to be informed that Samsung destroyed evidence that may have been favorable to Apple in the case.

Apple’s motion referred to Samsung’s email system which auto-deletes internal emails after a certain time in order to prevent unwanted leaks – we’ll note that the system doesn’t really work, since Samsung’s products are leaked more often than not. [...]

iPhone-based “Crisis of Design” inside Samsung, company memo reveals

by: Chris SmithAugust 7, 2012

The U.S. Apple vs Samsung patent war marches forward, and after having seen the obvious similarities between some of the default app icons found on the iPhone app and some of Samsung’s Galaxy-branded devices, we’re going to show you an internal Samsung memo from February 2010, which reveals how JK Shin, Samsung’s head of mobile communications, was basically trying to address the disruption the iPhone was causing at the time in the mobile business.

Samsung tried to keep the memo out of court, but John Quinn, Samsung’s counsel, mentioned the “crisis of design” while questioning Samsung strategist Justin Denison. The “crisis of design” [...]

Google, Apple start bidding for Kodak’s digital patents

by: LucianAugust 7, 2012

WSJ reported yesterday that Kodak’s upcoming patent auction already has 2 bidders: Google and Apple, and each has bids between $150 million and $250 million so far. Kodak, however, is expecting up to $2.6 billion for its 1,100 digital patents to pay off its creditors.

This may be wishful thinking for Kodak, but who knows how fast the bids will escalate with Apple in there. Apple doesn’t really care about the money they have to spend, so they will try to at least raise the cost for Google as much as possible provided Google does retain them eventually.

The two companies are not actually bidding by themselves, but are [...]
