UK judge rules that Galaxy Tab does not infringe on the iPad’s design, “not as cool”

by: Will G.July 10, 2012

One of Apple’s legal claims against Samsung, based on the alleged similarity between the Samsung Galaxy Tab and the iPad, was thrown away in an UK court last week. A British High Judge, Colin Biriss ruled that there is a big difference between both products, although he did noted that there are some design similarities.

What’s interesting is that the judge’s somehow expressed his appreciation for Apple’s designs. Biriss stated that the Galaxy Tab devices “do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design”. The judge also said that even [...]

Ban temporary lifted: Galaxy Nexus available again, but only until Apple responds

by: Gary SimsJuly 9, 2012

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 a bitter battle between Apple and Samsung (and indirectly Google) which started in 2010 when Apple started suing Samsung for “slavishly” copying the iPhone; naturally Samsung counter-sued, and so a war began. As part of the conflict, each company is digging deep [...]

Galaxy S3 sales represented 18% of the total handset sales in UK during launch week

by: LucianJuly 4, 2012

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 selling iPhones. Note that I’m only talking about the Galaxy S devices, but the company has many other models in the mid and low ranges, and, in total, Samsung Android handsets already outsell Apple’s iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS.

It appears that during the [...]

Galaxy Nexus sales ban in effect as Samsung appeal is denied, Google working on software fix

by: Chris SmithJuly 4, 2012

Yesterday we heard that Samsung was unsuccessful with its appeal to overturn a sales ban obtained by Apple in the previous week against Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales in the USA. At the time, we wondered whether the Galaxy Nexus appeal will go any better – we’ll remind you that Apple also obtained an injunction against Galaxy Nexus sales in the region in the same court – and it looks like Samsung lost the second appeal in a row. In fact, this is Samsung’s fourth defeat in just over a week, and we’ll now ask ourselves whether other Android devices made by the South Korean company are in similar peril.

The Verge reports that Apple has now posted the [...]

Samsung, Google stand united against Apple in patent fight

by: Chris SmithJuly 2, 2012

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 are also targeting Google’s open source mobile operating system in similar battles.

So far, Google had to, or felt the need to remain a somewhat quiet, but very interested observant of the various fights Apple has been engaged in. Interestingly, whether it’s Apple vs Samsung, Apple vs [...]

Galaxy Nexus sales ban appealed, Samsung wants to stay the injunction

by: Chris SmithJuly 2, 2012

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 injunction for the duration of the appeal or until a Federal Circuit judge decides on a possible stay. Samsung made the same demands in another appeal in the second injunction received earlier last week – this one targeting U.S. Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales.

Samsung is arguing in its Galaxy [...]

Judge Koh: Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 banned from sale in the US

by: Bams SadewoJune 27, 2012

Apple’s patent crusade against Samsung has finally resulted in the banning of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the U.S. – a year after the slate was launched, and since replaced by a successor, the Tab 2 10.1.

US District Judge Lucy Koh granted Apple’s request for a preliminary injunction against the Galaxy Tab 10.1 on Tuesday, ahead of the scheduled Friday hearing on the injunction request.

Koh said that Apple has a strong case for the sales ban of the Galaxy Tab 10.1. — “While Samsung will certainly suffer lost sales from the issuance of an injunction, the hardship to Apple of having to directly compete with Samsung’s infringing products outweighs Samsung’s [...]

Foxconn CEO says the next iPhone “will put the Galaxy S3 to shame”. But is it true?

by: LucianJune 21, 2012

It seems that Foxconn’s CEO Terry Gou has a beef with Samsung, ever since Sammy “snitched” to the EU the price-fixing scheme of four Taiwanese display makers.

First off, why wouldn’t Samsung do that if it was actually true? Would Mr. Gou prefer those companies to carry on with their price-fixing? If he would, then I question his work ethics, and who knows what else is going on at Foxconn that we don’t know about.

Second, Foxconn claiming that the next iPhone will put the Galaxy S3 to shame shouldn’t really surprise anyone. Foxconn is deeply integrated into Apple’s business, as they are assembling their iPhones and iPads, [...]

Samsung wins at The Hague, Apple to pay damages for infringing one 3G patent

by: Chris SmithJune 20, 2012

The Apple vs Samsung legal conflict is one of the most important patent-based battles in the mobile business considering the players involved. Apple and Samsung are also contending the number one position in the smartphone business, where Samsung is currently king when looking at the total number of shipped devices in the first quarter of the year, but where Apple is making the most profits during the same period.

Since Apple and Samsung top executives were not able to settle their differences and put a stop to the conflict that spans across four continents and ten countries, the trials that involve the two companies will go forward. In [...]

Samsung and Apple got 90% of smartphone profits in Q1 2012

by: Chris SmithJune 16, 2012

Samsung and Apple, while bound by a multi-billion dollar business partnership, are also fierce enemies, especially in the mobile space where the two companies are competing both in the smartphone and tablet businesses.

Recent research studies that Samsung managed to move past Apple to become the number one smartphone maker in the world, but the race is very tight, and we’re not looking at a complete Samsung win yet.

What’s clear is that the two corporations are making a lot of money off of their mobile divisions, and a new study from ABI Research shows that between them Samsung and Apple managed to get 90% of smartphone profits in the [...]
