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 [...]

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 [...]
