Apple coughs up $2.6m to block Samsung tablet sales

Apple coughs up $2.6m to block Samsung tablet sales

Apple has opened its purse and swiftly paid the $2.6m bond required to block sales of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the US, after a court granted a preliminary injunction against the Android slate. The bond - a drop in the ocean given Apple's current financial status - will be subject to forfeit to Samsung should the injunction be subsequently deemed improper. However, Samsung has requested that the block on sales be held off until its appeal can be heard.

Apple testing Nexus Tablet competitor in iPad mini

Apple testing Nexus Tablet competitor in iPad mini

This week there's been a bit of speculation surrounding the miniature, perhaps half-sized tablet Apple may or may not be working on behind the scenes. Earlier this week we heard Daring Fireball's John Gruber mention that a 7.85-inch model of the Apple tablet is currently in testing labs, though whether or not it would actually be considered for release seemed a different matter entirely. Now that Google Nexus Tablet rumors have caught fire again, is it time for Apple to get serious about tackling the mid-sized market?

ViewSonic follows Apple’s lead with MWC phones & tablets

ViewSonic follows Apple’s lead with MWC phones & tablets

ViewSonic has outed its Mobile World Congress line-up of smartphones and tablets, and with the Android-powered ViewPhone 4s running a 3.5-inch 960 x 640 display it's clear the iPhone 4S is the company's key target. The ViewPhone 4s matches Apple's smartphone with a 326ppi IPS display, but squeezes in twin SIMs and a copy of Ice Cream Sandwich, along with a 5-megapixel camera and a front-facing VGA webcam. It's not the only new ViewSonic device, though; read on for more.

Apple’s 8-inch iPad could form iOS tablet triptych

Apple’s 8-inch iPad could form iOS tablet triptych

Reignited rumors of a second, smaller Apple iPad have flourished, with signs pointing to not one but two new models in 2012 as the Cupertino company branches out into a twin-tablet strategy. Despite Steve Jobs' protestations to the contrary, back in 2010, insiders claim Apple has long maintained plans for a "tweener" tablet of its own; in fact, while twin-tier pricing for Apple's iPad has already been tipped for this year, with talk that the company might keep the current iPad 2 on as a budget model alongside March's new iPad 2S/3, it seems Apple's supply-chain may finally be up to the challenge of slotting in a new model.

Apple loses Dutch Samsung tablet ban bid

Apple loses Dutch Samsung tablet ban bid

Apple's bid to have sales of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 blocked in the Netherlands has failed today, with a Dutch appeals court dismissing Apple's claims of IP infringement by the Android tablet. The ruling - released in Dutch - found that while Apple's tablet design patent 000181607 is still valid, prior art including HP Compaq's tc1000 and the 1994 Knight Ridder concept meant the Cupertino company's design rights are very narrow.

Apple talks TV and tablets with media execs

Apple talks TV and tablets with media execs

Apple has reportedly ramped up its TV strategy, outlining a Siri and motion controlled television system in recent meetings with media executives and fleshing out its wirelessly-enabled smart TV set. The company has been courting several of the larger media companies, the WSJ's insiders tell them, selling the benefits of a cross-platform system that could recognize viewers whether they were using their TV, a tablet or a phone. However, the talks have fallen short of entering the negotiation phase for actual content licensing.

Samsung may one-up Apple with 11.6-inch tablet sporting 2560×1600 resolution, coming February

Samsung may one-up Apple with 11.6-inch tablet sporting 2560×1600 resolution, coming February

Rumor has it that Samsung has plans to take on Apple's upcoming iPad 3 tablet with its own 11.6-inch tablet, which may sport an incredibly dense, Retina display-shaming resolution. The new tablet will also have Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), and will be most likely to debut at this year's Mobile World Congress this February. Though the tablet will have a larger display than Samsung’s current Galaxy Tab 10.1, the tablet will be “barely larger”, since the panel will have a thinner bezel with a stunnning 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution, 11.6-inch screen, and a 16:10 aspect ratio. Apple's rumored iPad 3 Retina display should gear up for some competition.

Apple squeezes out longer Samsung tablet ban in Oz

Apple has managed to extend the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales ban in Australia for a further week, despite an appeals court describing the block as "clearly wrong", after an appeal of its own to the high court. Samsung had been given permission to put the 10-inch Android tablet on sale in the country from today, but Apple squeezed in a quick appeal request which forced an extension to the injunction until December 9, ABC reports.
