Apple has recently obtained a major victory against Samsung in the first U.S. trial between the two, but that’s not the only legal conflict in the region for the two parties. Riding the wave of its freshly won $1 billion verdict, Apple added various Samsung-made Android devices to its 2013 lawsuit that will also take place in San Jose, California and will be presided by the same Lucy Koh, the Judge of the first trial.
Apple’s filing mentions “at least 21 new smartphones, media players, and tablets that Samsung has released beginning in August 2011 and continuing through August 2012.”
Unsurprisingly, the list includes several new [...]
The complex Apple vs Samsung legal battle is far from over, despite the latter’s heavy loss in one of the U.S. patent-based trials between the two.
And while Samsung is going to work with carrier partners to modify its devices to address most, if not all, Apple’s patent infringement claims that the jury found Samsung to be violating with a variety of Galaxy-branded devices, that’s not the only path the company is considering.
Samusng will surely appeal the verdict, and it’s prepared to bring a new suit against Apple should the company launch an iPhone 5 with LTE capabilities, at least that’s what Korea Times is [...]
The main players in the mobile environment, are Apple and Google, which are fighting a fierce battle both in carrier stores for mind, market and profit share (although Google is yet to make any real money off of Android), but also in courts where an intense Apple vs Android war rages on.
Apple has sued the main Android device makers in the business, Samsung, HTC and Motorola, which in turned filed their own patent-based counter-claims against the iPhone maker. But it never brought legal action directly against Google. And Google stayed kind-of on the sidelines, watching the conflict evolve, and helping out only in certain [...]
The U.S. Apple vs Samsung lawsuit, in which the jury found Samsung to infringe on several Apple patents and awarded the iPhone maker over $1 billion in compensation, is casting a long shadow over IFA 2012, the Berlin-based trade show where Samsung has unveiled several new products, including the Android-based Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy Camera.
But while we talk about these new Android devices, as well as other Android devices officially announced during the show, we inevitably hear more details, commentary and analysis on Samsung’s recently lost legal spat.
Now CNET offers a sneak peak at Apple’s legal bill in the [...]
In the wake of the recent verdict in the U.S. Apple vs Samsung trial, we’ve seen lots of commentary and analysis on Samsung’s major defeat against its most important rival in the mobile space, which also happens to be an important business partner.
Therefore, it’s time for some more humor on the matter – don’t get us wrong, Samsung still faces hard times ahead, as such a disastrous defeat can’t be completely overturned in courts, and the war between the two sides is far from over – as we all need a break from such serious things from time to time.

The recently obtained $1 billion win for the iPhone maker in the U.S. Apple vs Samsung trial has all sorts of ripple effects that capture the attention of the media. While Samsung is determined to continue to fight Apple in court despite this “worst scenario” for the South Korean Android device maker, there are side effects that are already felt.
A few days ago we reported that after the verdict was made public, Samsung’s market cap dropped $12 billion. Now we hear that the second-hand smartphone market also has to suffer following the Apple win.
