Ruling: Samsung didn’t willfully infringe on Apple’s patents

Samsung’s 2012

Samsung’s 2012

The strength of Samsung's 2012 depends on whether you're in the South Korean company's product team or its legal team. Seldom does a single firm see such a mixture of fate in the same product segment: huge success - both in sales and user reaction - to the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Note II, versus a billion-dollar judgement against Samsung at the hands of arch-rival (and key components customer) Apple. All in a year's work for a company described as both an "arch copyist" and a capable innovator.

Apple CEO Tim Cook promised a 2012 to remember, and with sweeping changes across the iOS and Mac ranges, new software and services, and more than a few courtroom battles, the Cupertino firm delivered. The new fourth-gen iPad with Retina display and its iPad mini sibling, along with the iPhone 5, cemented Apple's position as the benchmark against which new tablets and phones are measured.
