In the wake of its courtroom victory against Samsung, Apple today asked the court to ban sales of eight Samsung devices found to infringe on its design and other patents. The devices include the Galaxy S 4G, S2 (AT&T and T-Mobile), S2 Skyrocket, S2 Epic 4G, S Showcase, Droid Charge, and Galaxy Prevail. Apple is hoping the court will grant a preliminary ban on these devices while seeking a final, permanent injunction barring their sale in the U.S. A San Jose jury found Samsung guilty of willful infringement of Apple's intellectual property and awarded it damages of more than $1 billion. Samsung is preparing to challenge the verdict.

Who Let This Happen?

As being an old phone dog myself and being in the wireless industry for a better portion of my adult life... I remember when 99.9% of cell phones were "candy bar" style and Motorola attempted to claim that the flip form and factor was their patent ... The absurdity of this claim was laughed out of litigation and was never taken seriously by the courts.... And now this happens?
I agree old dog; the speed of the decision was breathtaking. I'm afraid crApple, emboldened by this decision will threaten all other makers unless they agree to remove certain phones from circulation. They'll feel they can do no wrong now; we're al...
First, I'd like to say I'm NOT an Apple person. Quite the opposite actually.

The answer to "Who let this happen" is simple: For the most part, Samsung. Their internal Emails all but admitted copying directly, and those were used as evidence in the...

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 Sc...
