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 [...]

AT&T Galaxy S3 receives its own ‘dumb search’ update

by: Chris SmithJuly 12, 2012

After Sprint has updated its Galaxy S3 version to replace the regular search feature with a dumber one – that’s showing only web results, with local results no longer displayed – the carrier confirmed that “unified search” is no longer available on the flagship device. The move can only be perceived as a preemptive measure from Samsung meant to deal with any potential Apple patent infringement claims.

Apple has already scored an injunction against the Galaxy Nexus in the U.S.  – the sales ban has been lifted in the mean time – thanks to its patent on unified search technology, and the South Korean company is probably not interested in seeing [...]

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 [...]
