U.S. Galaxy S3 launch unhindered by Apple’s preliminary injunction attempts

by: Chris SmithJune 13, 2012

The Galaxy S3 is going to be available in America from six carriers this summer including the Big Four – Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile – but also two regional carriers: U.S. Cellular and C-Spire. At least three of the four nationwide mobile operators planned to launch the phone in the following week, with June 21 being the earliest U.S. Galaxy S3 release date in the region. But an expected obstacle soon appeared: Apple.

The iPhone maker tried to obtain a preliminary injunction against Galaxy S3 sales in the region, arguing that the handset is in violation of some of its patents. The company attempted to include the Galaxy S3 in [...]

Android will reach its peak this year, research claims

by: Chris SmithJune 7, 2012

The guys over at the International Data Corporation (IDC) issued a new press release yesterday to announce that Android is expected to “reach its peak this year as mobile phone shipments slow.” Sure, analysts have access to lots of data which they can track and aggregate to conduct such studies, but the truth is that they have no way of actually knowing what will happen four years from now.

According to IDC, Android will reach 61% market share in 2012, and drop to 52.9% in 2016. But will that really be a drop? When you look solely at percentages that’s what IDC’s study seems to indicate, but the total number of [...]

Prepare the popcorn – Samsung-Apple talks hit a dead-end, trial to start in July

by: Bams SadewoMay 24, 2012

If months of negotiations couldn’t do the trick, it’s rather a far fetched hope to think that the legal tussle between Apple and Samsung can be resolved in two days.

So it’s not really surprising to see that the mediation talks between the two tech giants, ordered by the court, have failed to bring an agreement. As reported by the Korea Times, a Samsung official said that the two competing execs couldn’t sort out their legal differences in an amicable way.

Despite the ongoing saga of suing and countersuing, Samsung and Apple are very much in a love-hate relationship. On one side, we have Apple accusing Samsung of copying its design for many of its products, [...]

Samsung and Apple mediation to start today. Will the two giants agree on cross-licensing?

by: AdrianMay 21, 2012

While Google and Oracle are still fiercely battling it out in court in a patent infringement war whose outcome is almost impossible to predict, the Apple vs Samsung clash is about to enter a new phase. The mediation stage will start today, as it was scheduled for around three weeks, and is set to end tomorrow, hopefully with some sort of truce.

For those of you who’ve been living under a very isolated rock for a while, we should tell you that the two biggest smartphone manufacturers in the world have been on a suing spree for the last couple of years, accusing each other of patent infringement over a bunch of gadgets, including the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the [...]

Samsung getting “huge orders” for flexible OLED displays, products on track for 2012 release

by: AdrianMay 14, 2012

Just about a year ago, flexible displays seemed like a dream, but things progress quicker than we’ve ever imagined. Samsung has been making waves in the media for a couple of months now, with its “bendy” panels, and, according to some fresh official claims, there’s already “huge” request for flexible OLED screens.

Kwon Oh-Hyun, Vice Chairman at Samsung Electronics, told the guys at KoreaTimes.co.kr that its company is “getting huge orders from electronic makers for the futuristic lineup of flexible organic light emitting diode (OLED) displays”. Kwon added that “we will be mass producing flexible OLED displays from the latter half of this year as the demand from our [...]

Samsung touts the virtues of its hardware, takes a subtle jab at Apple [Video]

by: Bogdan PetrovanMay 10, 2012

Samsung is not only the largest smartphone maker in the world, but also a top supplier of electronic components, from hi-resolution displays to processors and memory modules. It’s no secret that Samsung provides many of the components found in Apple’s wildly popular iPhone and iPad devices, including the much-touted Retina display and the A5X chip that powers the new iPad. A new online campaign highlights both Samsung technological prowess and the weird relationship it enjoys with its Cupertino-based arch-frenemy.

In The Conspirators, Samsung presents some of the problems that modern electronics users have come to know and dread – slow loading times, short battery [...]

Asymco: Samsung and Apple earned 99% of all smartphone profits last quarter

by: Mike AndriciMay 7, 2012

Our regular readers know by now that Samsung and Apple are (by far) the biggest smartphone vendors in the world.

But I’m sure that most of you will be surprised to learn that Samsung and Apple have earned 99% of all profits made in the smartphone market during the first quarter of 2012. Taiwanese manufacturer HTC accounts for the remaining 1% of the total profits.

These figures, calculated by Horace Dediu at Asymco, are even more surprising given the fact that smartphone shipments grew by 47% percent, bringing revenues up by 20% and overall profits up by 52% (total profits for the first quarter have reached $14.4 billion). To sum it all up, Samsung and Apple [...]

And so it ends? Apple and Samsung mediation scheduled on May 21

by: AdrianMay 1, 2012

The time-consuming, money-eating, resource-devouring legal war between Apple and Samsung, the world’s two most important smartphone manufacturers, could be gearing towards a surprising end in less than a month.

Court mandated mediation will take place on May 21 and 22, according to official information, and the whole technology world is hoping that the two giants will finally have the sense to discuss settling and put the ugly legal disputes of the past behind them.

We reported a while back that Lucy Koh, the judge presiding over several of the lawsuits between Apple and Samsung in the US, had “invited” the two companies’ CEOs to participate at a settlement [...]

Samsung and Apple CEOs to meet and participate in ‘settlement negotiations’

by: Mike AndriciApril 19, 2012

Although I’m sure most of you know this by now, the corporate world is definitely not one bound to the rules of common sense. One of the numerous examples on the topic is ongoing patent dispute between the number one and number two smartphone manufacturers in the world, a litigation that continues despite the fact that Apple is currently one of Samsung’s biggest clients. According to recent rumors, the South Korean giant manufactures $8 billion worth of various components that end up inside the iPhone and the iPad, the two best selling (and most profitable overpriced) Apple devices. Meanwhile, Apple and Samsung are involved in extremely costly and resource intensive [...]
