Apple may have emerged victorious over Samsung when it comes to sales in the fourth quarter of 2012, but Samsung’s lawyers are no doubt celebrating as it has emerged that the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has denied Apple’s request to enforce a ban on sales of
Strategy Analytics, a market research firm, said in a report released today that Apple is now the largest maker of mobile phones in the United States, defeating Samsung in terms of units shipped. This marks the first time in Apple’s history that this has occurred.
Apple is well known for securing patents for its many products. That may bode well for the company in the face of less-than-desired sales performance surrounding the wrongfully skewered iPhone 5. PC Mag cites Manotti Jenkins, a patent attorney with Chicago-based Valorem Law Group, as claiming that those poor sales figures
Turns out that the demand for iPhone 5 isn’t as high as Apple had expected, at least according to sources cited by The Wall Street Journal. One source said Apple notified its suppliers in December that it will reduce iPhone 5 screen and other component orders by roughly half in
Apple is indeed after diversifying its iPhone offering with a cheaper version of its flagship handset. Both the Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg have confirmed Digitimes’ earlier report citing anonymous supply chain sources.
Purveyors of aging technology can rejoice as the U.S. preliminary injunction to ban state-side sales of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus has been reversed. The Nexus is still currently Google's flagship smartphone, retaining the title since the time that the injunction had been granted, although the court had found that the reasoning behind the initial ban was not strong enough to withstand another major Samsung blow.

In a move that downsizes the 4.8" display to 4" in a new miniaturized S3 model, the S3 will become very much more so a head-to-head competitor.
In what seems like quite a childish attempt to undermine the iPhone 5, Samsung today ran an ad in Sunday newspapers blatantly declaring its anti-iPhone 5 view. You haven't seen desperate until you've seen this.
Here's a curious bit of information that will likely leave you in a daze: a judge based in the United Kingdom has declared that Apple must advertise on its website that Samsung did not in fact copy the iPad when said company released its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet.
Apple and Samsung have been neck-at-neck in legal battles, with Apple... as Charlie Sheen would say: "winning." Now, Apple has done perhaps the most damage it could to Google with a single Android phone by having Google's flagship smartphone blocked from U.S. sales in the form of an officially-ruled pre-trial injunction. That phone is of course the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the latest in Google's official phone lineup, making this not only a potentially major blow to both companies but also the future of Android.
