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?

Isn't it a sort of admission that they did in fringe on the patents. Now with the new phone they when out of there way to avoid infringing? Surely they should of done it on the other phones.
Plus the nexus has a shite camera.

The phone looks awesome. I have used IOS and Android devices and on the phone part of it I say it's a toss up because both are great. Apple still has an edge on the tablets though, for the time being that is.

I would think that companies would go out of their way to differentiate themselves from competitors. Apple always has. It makes me sad to think about the devices we'd be holding if Apple weren't constantly innovating and continuing to "think different." And let's show some maturity people. What is this? YouTube ?

True companies should set their own standards and copyin should out of the question. But people need to get real when it looks nice it looks nice when it looks like s'h'i't' it looks like ****. Just cause you like one brand more than the other they should keep unecessary comments to themselves

Everybody knock the insults off. For goodness's sake, we're discussing phones, not politics or religious beliefs. Keep the mudslinging out of this discussion. OT: New phone design. Cool. Really large, hi-rez screen. Nice. Ice Cream Sandwich, meh. Google-controlled Nexus? Always a plus. Do not like the physical shape too much. Ah well.
