Why Apple winning is good news for Android

1) Handset makers who are actually innovating get more attention. Aside from Samsung, every other handset manufacturer is suffering, yet they're the ones spending a lot of money on R&D to distinguish themselves.

2) Samsung will have to improve the quality of their devices, as it's no longer acceptable to make creaky cheap plastic knockoffs of the iPhone, slap on a iOS-mixed-with-typical-Samsung-bad-taste skin, and call it 'obvious.'

2) Android, which has already been veering away from iOS for a couple years now in terms of UI conventions, now has to remain fully committed to its own course (which I think it will be much stronger for.) Think about how much better 'Holo' apps looks now than the cruddy ones we saw back 2 years ago.

I agree on all points. However I need to express a issue I have with the first part of number 2. While yes Samsung has been feeding off the Apple vine for a bit (at least in a courts eyes), the real group of people that Apple should go after is the SciPhone, IPhon, iLeaf, TPhone, Meizu, C002, IPhone Nano, Sect P168, Sect T5 T32, Cool 999, Ephone and IiPhone. Those guys go really out of the way to make iPhone rip offs. While yes I personally don't believe Samsung is innocent, the real criminals are the above named companies literally ripping off apple designs.

Those guys make chump change off those knockoffs. They're not really worth pursuing.
