    Default Samsung's Requested Product Ban Applies Only to Older iOS Devices


    Capping off a busy week of legal news for Apple and Samsung, the latest filing by the South Korean tech behemoth with the U.S. International Trade Commission is bringing to light critical details regarding Samsung's request for a market ban on certain Apple products.

    According to FOSS Patents, Samsung has indicated that Apple's alleged patent violations largely apply to previous generations of Apple products. Consequently, if a ban is granted, it would only impact older iOS devices like the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 3, in addition to the first two generations of Apple's iPad.

    This information is critical to understanding the prospective scope of a potential import ban. Given that the iPhone 3GS, 3G and first-generation iPad are no longer rolling off of Apple's assembly lines like newer models are, that leaves Apple with only a potentially serious market loss of the iPhone 4 and iPad 2 if a ban is ultimately ordered - and that's a big "if" indeed.

    I can't reiterate this enough, I have no respect of sammy and I used to buy their stuff...

    Either way, IF I was an Android guy, I'd go for the new HTC One. I think it's a beautiful phone that didn't simply mimic what everyone else was doing. I give those guys props...

    Is the Samsung launcher (not sure if I'm using the right terminology) much better than sense? I think these would all be more appealing with just stock Android.

    not much, but it's better. anyway they both compared to Vanilla (stock android) are ugly and totally useless.

    maybe when they realize about it. they can have much better results. meanwhile we have Cianogen.

    I rather have Sense than touchwiz. Sense 5 is a really good skin, I find Blinkfeed actually useful. And love what HTC did with the camera.

    If I didn't have the DNA I would definitely pick that one up. But I'm happy with it, not really missing out on anything from the One. Plus the bigger display is amazing for watching movies, full 1080p looks stunning on it.

    I agree entirely with you on this, including the comment about HTC/the HTC One. Though I'm an iPhone user, ever since the EVO 4G, which was my first smartphone, I have definitely loved HTC and have always thought of them as Apple's greatest competition in the QUALITY of phones, not simply marketing a makeshift war.

    I have no respect for sammy or apple , apple has run out of ideas for the iphone , os is from 2007 and looks old , ok ios 7 might look better , but looks more android on every update , or they steal ideas from cydia tweaks
    Wish both apple and samsung would stop this patent war as it slows down development on both makes , apple started all this crap and should stop before their shares are worthless , bet steve jobs is turning in his grave how cook is screwing apple , apple make cool products but are run by a bunch of power crazed idiots just like sammy is now
