Samsung Designs Galaxy Nexus Specifically To Avoid Apple Patent Infringement
You probably already know about the series of patent infringement lawsuits
flying around between Apple and Samsung. According to Samsung’s mobile president, Shin Jong-kyun, Samsung is going to “avoid everything and take patents very seriously.”
He went on to say though Samsung took precaution to avoid any potential patent infringement with the Google Nexus, although he couldn’t be certain that the phone will be “100 percent free” of lawsuits from Apple. This will definitely help the company as they are in several legal battles with Apple, all of which are expected to continue for a “considerable” amount of time. After unveiling the Galaxy Nexus, Jong-kyun mentioned the following; “"I don't think there is much gain (from lawsuits against Apple). What we are losing is the pride in our brand."
Google and Samsung together held an event on Tuesday to show off their new smartphone, the Galaxy Nexus. It runs on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwhich) and sports a 4.65-inch Super HD AMOLED display (with a resolution of 1,280 by 720 pixels), all powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor.
What do you guys think of the patent infringement issues and what Shin Jong-kyun had to say? Do you have any thoughts about Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus?
