  • Samsung Says It Plans to Fight Verdict... Aggressively


    Last Friday's verdict against Samsung did little to make the tech giant want to stop fighting Apple. In fact, as of Tuesday morning, Samsung is ready to fight again - and harder than before.

    Although Apple has already been awarded $1 billion in damages (a figure that could triple before the smoke ultimately clears), Apple went for the jugular on Monday by asking for a sales ban on an entire slate of Android-powered Samsung mobile devices.

    The Wall Street Journal confirmed today that Samsung is promising to fight Apple in the U.S. with "all necessary measures." For Samsung, however, such a fight may actually be a fight for survival in the smartphone space, especially if Apple succeeds in achieving a market ban on the Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy S2 AT&T, Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, Galaxy S2 T-Mobile, Galaxy S2 Epic 4G, Galaxy S Showcase, Galaxy Prevail and Droid Charge.

    Not surprisingly, Samsung will seek to overturn the verdict, "first through post-trial motions with Judge Koh" and eventually through an appeal if it comes down to it. Correspondingly, no one will be shocked during this potentially protracted process if Samsung requests an appeals court to stay a preliminary injunction.

    So how will this saga eventually conclude? For now, even the most conjecture-happy of market analysts and industry watchers are reluctant to weigh in.

      It's funny how Apple uses google software in their iPhone since day one, for example Google maps and YouTube. They also use samsung hardware like their touch-screens. Apple uses these companies as it's stepping stone and cuts there throat at the same time.

      Of course it was biased and 1 sided.
      The case was in Apples country, in Apples hometown against a company from Asia.
      If they wanted to hear a true case without bias they should've had the case in England where neither of the companies are based.

I'll continue to buy Samsung because of their superior hardware, superior OS and everything in-between. Their ridiculous patents need to be invalidated.
      Nicely said. Thats what I keep saying too.

      You are obviously not reading the model list carefully. All of them are outdated models anyway. Galaxy Tab, Note and S III are not on the list, which are the real models still being bought at present.

      Apple doesn't like competition, they just want to monopolize the whole market, and that is not respectable. I do agree that the first galaxy s is a big copy of the iPhone and apple is right to seek ban for it, I'm not sure about the other devices. But this patent thing is ridiculous. Either way, apple will not stop Samsung from this point on, galaxy s 3 is doing great and every other Samsung product should be patent proof. Phuck apple.

      So let me get this straight.

      Apple is just lucky to even sell the products they have.

      The only reason they are successful is because EVERYONE that buys their products is somehow a zombie, and nothing about their products is actually good, people just THINK that they are good.

      The iPhone, iPad & MacBook all existed in their exact form before & Apple just stole them & put them in white boxes.

      Apple has brought nothing to the tech world at all that should be of note.

      These are the things that some of you are trying to convince others of.



      Wow, I like Android's progress and some of the devices that use it. But damn, are we really going to pretend that Apple hasn't put out some pretty solid products over the years?

      Innovation is history, nowadays something is only widely classed as innovation if Apple does it.

      Apple is being a little excessive. But seriously the Android fanboys don't make sense when they talk. If Apple truly was only taking ideas and improving them, I don't know why the companies who came up with the original ideas aren't improving them and up to par already.

      If you don't like Apple and its products, that's fine! The trend with Android fanboys is they like to talk smack about the products and the people that like them. This is because they have nothing better to say but use attacks. Come on now, none of the Apple product users here are demanding you to switch and love Apple. In fact, I think it's fine you have other preferences for your mobile devices and computers. Why do you have to be the same as any of us? Better yet, why do we have to be the same as you?

      I hope Apple doesn't get this ban approved, but I do think Samsung needs to change up the designs a bit.

      It would appear that Samsung should look to these forums for all arguments for and against by the looks of all the expert opinions of the Fandroids on here...

      This purely revenge for apple. Don't blame them for trying to take samsung out of the game. Apple had warned them and Samsung didn't take them seriously.

      Cannot add comment here? Let me do it again.

      The ban will have no bad effect on Samsung at all. All of the 8 products are no longer actively selling.

      Omg here we go again .. People think apple invented everything. They did not invent or innovate nothing! They steal all of their ideas.. Steve jobs even said so himself. Oh btw Samsung made the screen ur using on ur iPhone .. Hahahahaha!! Apple didn't.do nothing but polish it up. They should not get credit for it. Yes their products are nice. I should know I have one of each. But let's be honest, they steal a lot of their ideas from others and claim them. The notification bar? That was from google. Btw!

Their phones are not "far more superior than any other cellphone maker on the market". If it were so Apple would have sold so many more devices than Samsung, which is not the case. iOS was just as choppy and buggy as Android when it first came out. Android is now a very well-polished OS that out-shines iOS in every aspect.

      HAHAHA wow. How could Apple ever out sell Samsung when Samsung has like 50 more devices. There's no fair way to even compare that statistic. Also have you ever used iOS because it makes Android look like a pile of ****

      I'd hate to reiterate, but here we go again as well: If the ideas were stolen and improved upon, why aren't the original creators of the ideas up to par yet? Not everything Apple is doing is right, but not everything is wrong either. People attack Apple fans for siding with Apple, but why are Android fans siding with Samsung when currently it is in the wrong as well? You overlook the flaws for the company you side with, but you attack every flaw with the rival company that you don't like. Nobody here has ever tried to be a little less biased.
