Samsung scores 3G patent win over Apple: Seeks compensation

Samsung has secured a win against Apple in The Hague, with the Dutch court ruling that older iPhones and iPads contravene a 3G patent held by the Korean company. Although Samsung's earlier attempts to have the products - which include the iPad 2 and iPhone 4, though not the latest iPhone 4S and new iPad - blocked from sale were rejected, the company says it will now use this ruling to obtain compensation for the infringement from Apple.

Mophie Juice Pack Plus for iPhone 4 and 4S now available at Apple

The iPhone is a great smartphone, but the battery is definitely lacking in heavier usage scenarios. It’s sealed into the chassis too, so you’re pretty much stuck if you run out of juice in the middle of the day without a charger to hand. Mophie has been making battery cases to remedy such situations for a time, with its latest Juice Pack Plus model now available for the iPhone 4 and 4S at Apple, in retails stores as well as online.

iOS 6 signals Apple legacy device drop-off

For those of you that did not know, iOS 6 was revealed this week at Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference 2012, and with it came news that several older model mobile devices, including the original iPad, would no longer be getting updates past version 5. Included in the update to Apple's latest mobile operating system are the iPhone 3GS, 4, and 4S, iPod touch models older than the 4th generation, and the iPad 2 and 3. Everything older than this will more than likely have service updates if bugs arise in the future with iOS 5, but they will not be traveling up unto the 6th iteration of Apple's mobile environment.

Apple details iOS 6 limits: no FaceTime 3G for iPhone 3GS/4

Apple couldn't resist a brief jibe at Android over how many users have Ice Cream Sandwich, but the company has quietly admitted that while iPhone 3GS and 4 owners will get iOS 6, they won't get all the features.

Virgin Mobile caused a shudder amid the tech world yesterday, confirming it would be offering the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S with no contract and hitherto unseen low calling plans, but do the numbers hold up to scrutiny? At $549 for an 8GB iPhone 4 or $649 for a 16GB iPhone 4S, it's a long way from the heavily-subsidized offers AT&T, Verizon and others have on offer. Swallowing the cost of a new smartphone upfront can bypass a whole lot of monthly pain, however. Read on for the sums that will salve your wallet.

iPhone heads to Virgin Mobile off-contract

It appears that the Apple's iPhone won't only be on one line of service with no contract this year, with Virgin Mobile being reported to grab the most popular phone on the planet as soon as July 1st. This report comes from Market Watch where they've got a source familiar with the matter speaking about the device's jump into the prepaid world, starting with Leap Wireless and now hitting up Virgin. This move is reportedly helping Virgin Mobile's parent company satisfy their $15.5 billion dollar contract with Apple over four years.

Pre-Paid Leap iPhone not exactly cheap

Pre-Paid Leap iPhone not exactly cheap

Today we're finding that the idea of a pre-paid, no-contract iPhone is something that is driving the news media, but not necessarily customers, right up the wall. Reactions this week appear to be stemming from the unspoken rule that Apple's selection of approved carriers for the iPhone is a near-impossible cookie to crack. What we're finding here on Cricket is that there's certainly nothing to get excited about, especially given the similarities between this carrier's pricing and the prices users pay through every other outlet.
