Samsung tipped to lean towards Microsoft after Apple trial

Samsung tipped to lean towards Microsoft after Apple trial

A report today suggests that Samsung is doing two things after their Apple trial verdict left them in an irritable legal situation: speaking with carriers and shaking hands with Microsoft. This report comes from The Korea Times where they suggest that Samsung will be partnering closely with Microsoft in the near future to cut their dependency on Google's mobile operating system Android. This report should be taken with a grain of salt, of course, since Android runs the vast majority of Samsung's wildly popular mobile line of devices.

Values vs. Choice: Apple and Samsung speak on $1bn verdict

Values vs. Choice: Apple and Samsung speak on $1bn verdict

Samsung may be facing a billion in damages after Apple persuaded a US jury that it was an arch copyist, but the company still has snark to spare. The "verdict should not be viewed as a win for Apple" the South Korean firm said of the ruling in San Jose this week, "but as a loss for the American consumer." According to Samsung, the favorable decision for Apple - which saw the Cupertino company escape with zero damages in Samsung's counter-suits - will mean less choice, less innovation and, perhaps most importantly in the tough economic climate, "higher prices." Apple isn't so concerned, unsurprisingly, describing the case as "about much more than patents or money."

Samsung sets sights on stylus to beat iPhone and iPad

Samsung is set to have a pen-happy August with the arrival of styli-stroked slates large and small, as the company attempts to bypass the iPad and iPhone and establish its own niche. Challenging Apple's full-sized tablet is the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, announced back in February and finally hitting shelves worldwide this month in WiFi-only and HSPA+ flavors; however, long-standing rumors suggest a smaller "phablet" is also in the pipeline for an August reveal, replacing the Galaxy Note.

Samsung infuriates Apple with iPhone evidence leak

Samsung infuriates Apple with iPhone evidence leak

Samsung has incurred the wrath of the judge in the Apple vs. Samsung case, after publicly releasing trial evidence it had been blocked from officially submitting to the ongoing patent battle. Pleading "fundamental fairness" as its justification, Samsung dropped a pair of presentations along with an official statement on the media, aiming to squash Apple's claims that the Samsung F700 was an iPhone copy. "The excluded evidence would have established beyond doubt that Samsung did not copy the iPhone design" the company said, in a move Apple described as "contemptible."
