What Samsung will try to prove in the U.S. patent case against Apple

by: Chris SmithJuly 26, 2012

It looks like the summer will be very hot when it comes to patent disputes, with the main attraction of this circus show being the Apple vs Samsung battle that’s just about to start in the U.S., the largest market for mobile devices, and hence, the most important one for both parties.

Just a few days ago we heard that Apple is asking for $2.525 billion in damages and royalties from the South Korean company, although it would rather choose injunctions against infringing products. The same company is willing to pay just half a cent to Samsung for the alleged 3G patent violations from iPhone and iPad models that make use of the wireless [...]

Apple wins “adverse inference jury instruction” in U.S. patent case against Samsung

by: Chris SmithJuly 26, 2012

In case you’re not aware of it, Apple and Samsung are embroiled in a complex legal patent-based battle that spans across four continents, in 10 markets. Of the over 50 cases between the two giants, two are of utmost importance right now, an Australian trial that has already started and – even more important for the mobile business – the U.S. trial that’s scheduled to begin on July 30.

So far it’s Apple that has won the most favorable verdicts in its conflict with the Android device maker, including two recent injunctions obtained in the U.S. against Galaxy-branded devices such as the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet and the Galaxy Nexus [...]

Apple Q3 FY2012: 26 million iPhones and 17 million iPads sales, $35 billion revenue and $8.8 billion profits

by: Chris SmithJuly 24, 2012

Apple on Tuesday announced its financial results for its third quarter of fiscal year 2012 – which corresponds to the second quarter of the year, ending on June 30 – and we’re looking at some record numbers for this period of the year, even some overall records (iPad sales).

The company has sold 26 million iPhones or 28% more than in Q3 FY2011 and 17 million iPads or 84% more than last year, and an all time record for quarterly iPad sales. Apple also sold 4 million Macs and 6.8 million iPods during the quarter – a 2% increase and 15% decrease, respectively, compared to last year.

These sales brought in $35 billion in revenue, out of [...]

Apple wants $2.525 billion from Samsung in damages, but prefers injunctions against allegedly infringing products

by: Chris SmithJuly 24, 2012

It looks like it’s Super Tuesday today when it comes to legal matters here at Android Authority. We talked just earlier today about Apple’s and Samsung’s second mediation meeting that did not go that well, and then we heard that Apple obtained an EU-wide injunction against the Galaxy Tab 7.7 in Germany, but was denied one against the Galaxy Tab 10.1N in the same region.

Now we have one more rather important piece of legal news for you in this complex Apple vs Samsung and it concerns Apple’s financial requests in the American lawsuit that’s about to start –  you should expect more such updates, as the U.S. Apple vs Samsung case is set to [...]

Apple, Samsung fail to reach common ground in new top execs mediation meeting

by: Chris SmithJuly 24, 2012

Whether you use their products or not, you surely must be aware of the gigantic legal conflict between Apple and Samsung, as the two companies are suing and countersuing each other in patent-based cases in 10 markets across four continents. One of the most important trials in this complex battle is the U.S. Apple vs Samsung case, as the American smartphone and tablet markets are very important for both companies.

With just a few days before this lawsuit starts (July 30), Apple and Samsung execs met in California for the second time in a matter of months, but they were not able to reach common grounds, for the second time in as many [...]

Samsung gets another hit – Galaxy Tab 10.1 injunction remains in place

by: AdrianJuly 23, 2012

While some laughed at Apple’s patent attacks against Samsung, which seemed like losing battles from the get-go, the joke is starting to be on Sammy. After some relatively insignificant wins in Europe and Australia some time ago, Tim Cook’s giant knocked it off the park in the past month or so, with a couple of US injunctions against two popular Samsung devices.

The Galaxy Nexus sales ban might have been lifted for the time being, but Sammy still has some splitting headaches with the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet. The 10-incher has been banned for sale in the US last month, and, after the denial of Samsung’s first appeal on the decision, the Koreans have been hit hard again by [...]

Brace yourselves, Verizon Galaxy S3 owners, “dumbed down” search update is imminent

by: Bams SadewoJuly 21, 2012

The expected update has finally come to Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy S3. Following the dumbing down of the search feature on AT&T’s and Sprint’s variant of the phone – where you can only get search results from the web and nothing from internally placed apps, contacts, multimedia files and others – Big Red is the third major carrier to receive the not so desirable software update.

There’s no report yet that the update has been widely rolled out over-the-air (OTA) to the handset, but the new Galaxy S3 firmware for Verizon has already been spotted. If you, by chance, have had to replace your phone recently, you will likely receive a [...]

UK judge forces Apple to publicly acknowledge that Samsung did not copy the iPad

by: Bogdan PetrovanJuly 18, 2012

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 its designs when making the Galaxy Tab. Apple will have to publish the announcement on their UK website and keep it live for six months. Also, they will have to publish the same acknowledgement in several British newspapers and magazines. There is no word yet on the contents of the [...]

Samsung smartphone sales almost double the iPhone sales in Q2 2012

by: LucianJuly 17, 2012

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.

That manufacturer is, of course, Samsung, which lately has been riding a wave of huge success in the market. This is due to its Galaxy S flagship devices, and the halo effect those devices created around their cheaper devices as well. Last year, Samsung became both the global [...]

Galaxy S3 dumb search update feature confirmed by Samsung, it’s because of Apple

by: Chris SmithJuly 16, 2012

Launched in late May, the Galaxy S3 is now available from all Big Four carriers in the U.S, with regional operators including U.S. Cellular and C Spire scheduled to get the handset soon. What’s particular for the American launch is that two of the Big Four mobile operators have already issued some important Galaxy S3 updates that, in addition to bringing some fixes and improvements, also happen to dumb down the Search feature of the phone.

The Verge got a statement from Samsung on the matter and it appears that it’s the company’s doing. Just as we suspected, the South Korean Android maker is taking preemptive measures against another [...]
