Apple’s $1,049,343,540 victory over samsung

Apple Samsung Ruling

Last year, Apple claimed in a lawsuit that Samsung violated some of the designs and technology that made up the iPhone and iPad. These include features like rounded corners of the user interface, much talked about pinch zoom, and a rubber band feature. On the contrary Samsung denied this and countersued and accused Apple of infringing on some of its patents.

However the jury has found five of the six patent filed by Apple which have been violated by the Samsung.

Now that Apple has won its patent claims against Samsung, the company has to pay Apple $1.05 Billion as a monetary damage.

There were more than 700 questions regarded alleged infringement by both the companies.

How Google is also blown by this verdict

The verdict comes as a major blow to the entire Android community. Samsung is one of the strongest Android player and Google has been quietly providing its own quiet support to Samsung. The most important part of this verdict is that now Apple has a special morale to sue all other Android devices maker which will affect Google directly.

Android is not free anymore

Many of the Android users are already paying a license fee to Microsoft, now will also have to pay an additional fee to Apple. Hence Google’s free Android operating system will not be free anymore.

Company’s statement after the ruling

Apple said

                 “The lawsuit between Apple and Samsung were about much more than patents or money. They were about values.”

While the Samsung statement came as

        “Todays verdict should not be viewed as a win for Apple but as a loss for the American consumers. It will lead to fewer choices, less innovation, and potentially higher prices”

Well, I personally believe its not all over yet. But at present Tim Cook must be rejoicing with the ruling in favor of his company.

The Next Galaxy About To Hit

The hype surrounding the upcoming Galaxy smartphone has just gotten bigger. The folks at Samsung have devised a new way to further egg on the excitement regarding their upcoming flagship smartphone, commonly referred to as the Samsung Galaxy S III. The brand has put up a cryptic message on their Twitter account with the words, ‘Destination: tgeltaayehxnx.’ The latter word may seem like like rubbish and in actuality it is, but those with a keen eye for puzzles can figure out that it is actually an anagram and when deciphered reads, ‘the next galaxy.’

Few hours till the next puzzle

Few hours till the next puzzle

 

The brand has not just stopped there and has also made a URL with the same cryptic word and when the link http://www.tgeltaayehxnx.com is clicked, it takes one to a countdown page with the words, ‘Coming Soon’ in bold and below that the reference to when the next step in presumably another puzzle can be taken. This would lead one to believe that if not a puzzle, Samsung might reveal something more about the upcoming Galaxy smartphone like maybe a teaser video or like in the case of Motorola when they revealed an image puzzle before announcing the RAZR smartphone.
In case any of you missed out here are some of the rumoured specifications of the next Galaxy smartphone:

 

  • Android Ice Cream Sandwich
  • 4.6-inch display Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1184 x 720
  • 1,4GHz quad-core processor
  • Mali-400MP GPU
  • 16GB Internal memory
  • Expandable via MicroSD card
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear camera
  • NFC
  • 2250mAh battery

Rumours of this smartphone have been doing the rounds since late last year and over the last few weeks have gathered a lot of steam. The biggest bit of information came a few days back when a Vietnamese website posted a hands on video of the device. The website had detailed specifications of the smartphone, but what still remains in doubt is how this handset will look once it is officially unveiled.

 

As of now we have to just wait and see what Samsung has planned regarding their much talked about smartphone. For all the rumours and speculations surrounding this smartphone, click here.
