U.S. court denies Apple's request to block sales of Samsung Galaxy devices

“It is not clear that an injunction on Samsung’s accused devices would prevent Apple from being irreparably harmed,” U.S. judge wrote in a decision that came out last Friday, December 2, denying Apple’s appeal for a preliminary injunction against Samsung and from stopping it from selling Galaxy smartphones and tablets.

The two companies have been battling it out in court since April, when Apple Inc filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Samsung for ‘slavishly’ copying and using a number of technologies off its iPad and iPhone.

Samsung Galaxy S II Performs Great in its First Five Months

Written on September 26, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Samsung Galaxy S II had surpassed the record of the original Galaxy S as it obtained over 10 million on sales in just five months.

Samsung cracked another milestone on Sunday, and said that the Galaxy S II passed 10 million sales on its first five months on market. This surpasses the original Galaxy S that took seven months to hit the same amount. The largest piece of Galaxy S II sales 3.6 million, was in Samsung’s native South Korea.

Europe is almost as equal in importance and has seen 3.4 million S II units trade hands to date. Southeast Asia outside of Korea was considerably less of a factor at 2.3 million. The goals include very few of North America, as the Galaxy S II only went on sale in Canada through Bell in July and was otherwise limited to unlock full price versions until this month.

Apple Wins Marketing Battle Versus Samsung, Expanding to UK

Written on September 15, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Apple won a minor marketing battle versus Samsung in the UK, as the former expands its global patent war with the latter into the UK courts as well.

With the released of its Galaxy S II which measures 8.71mm thick, Samsung challenged Apple’s marketing of its 9.3mm iPhone 4 as the “world’s thinnest smartphone.” However, UK’s Advertising Standards Authority determined that the Cupertino-based company’s device is indeed thinner. ASA also noted that Samsung’s Galaxy S II has prominent bulges at the top of the device.

ASA further reported that “Apple said consumers would not be interested in the thinnest part of the device, but in its overall measurements, as these would, for example, affect whether the device could fit into a pocket or purse.”

Meanwhile, Apple has separately filed a law suit against Samsung with regards to patents in the UK. The latter, on the other hand, stated that it was a countersuit to patent claims filed by Samsung in June. Both companies are also engaged in active patent battles in the US, American ITC, Japan, South Korea, Germany, The Netherlands, Italy, France and Australia.

Samsung Galaxy S II, to Compete iPhone 5

Written on August 29, 2011 by Lulu

Comments Off

Samsung gave a hint that their upgraded Galaxy S II will include 1.5GHz Exynos dual-core processor to compete against iPhone 5.

Samsung has tipped its hand early on some of its plans for their smartphone with an early Korean unveiling of the newly upgraded Galaxy S II. The new Galaxy S II LTE is packed with 4G, a larger 4.5 inch screen, and an even faster 1.5GHz Exynos dual-core processor. It also features NFC wireless and a larger 1,850mAH battery.

Samsung also claimed that the Galaxy Tab 8.9′s month-delayed launch is also rewarding buyers for the wait. Along with the LTE, the tablet would get the same 1.5GHz dual-core chips and ships with Android 3.2. Despite its smaller screen, it should still measure 8.6mm thick like the Tab 10.1.

Verizon Wireless Won’t Release a Samsung Galaxy S II Variant

Written on August 27, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

Sources close to the company claimed that Verizon will not launch the Samsung Galaxy S II for their network.

Samsung has just confirmed that it will not launch the anticipated Galaxy S II smartphone on Verizon Wireless. Sources have hinted that the manufacturer will soon publicize this announcement, and would state that the device would only be released on other major wireless carriers — including AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint.

Up to now, it is still vague why the two companies have decided not to work together, even after Samsung’s Droid Charge has appeared on Verizon last May.

Samsung has indeed attained the highest sales rate in the smartphone market in 2010, comprising almost 13% of all the smartphone sales. However, having the lack of partnership with Verizon and the fact that Samsung is facing certain preliminary injunction issues from Apple, the growth of their future devices might be affected.

The Samsung Galaxy S II had already sold over 5 million units in just 85 days after its launching in Europe, Australia, and Asia. The Sprint version of the smartphone will then be available for $199 with a two-year contract.

Samsung Markets 3 Million Galaxy S II Phones in 55 Days

Written on July 04, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

Samsung successfully sold three million Galaxy S II in just 55 days. Their plans of expanding internationally had also been disclosed.

Last Sunday, a report claimed that Samsung sold three million Galaxy S II phones in just 55 days. That means that the company was able to sell one device every 1.5 seconds. Perhaps this is faster than the marketing of its original gadget, the Galaxy S.

According to Samsung, most of the success came from Europe, while 30-36 percent of the smartphone market was done in Austria and Switzerland. The company also became the top smarthphone producer in UK during the launching. However, most of the sales did not include the Galaxy S II. Samsung believed that it was the “dramatically increased” dual-core device, which made them notable is these countries.

Samsung to Run Galaxy S II 3D Ad in Apple Devices

Written on July 02, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

Samsung entitles Apple iPad users to have a glance of their newest smartphone, the Galaxy S II.

Samsung, along with its ad agency – Starcom – will produce an ad which will be released before the month ends. The said 3D ad is intended to be shown on the company’s top competitor, the Apple iPad. This first 3D ad presentation will feature Samsung’s newest smartphone — the Samsung Galaxy S II. Though they had pointed out that it’s not really a high-definition preview, the company promised that the ad would be very interactive and might catch the attention of most Apple users.

The 3D ad, which will run in UK, will reveal the Samsung Galaxy S II in different angles by using high-end visual effects, just so people can have a glimpse of its advanced specs. The idea that Samsung will run these ads on such mobile devices produced by their rival company is truly ironic, as tech geeks all know Apple’s claims that Samsung is copying most of the features of their products.

Perhaps these 3D advertisements will not only unveil the Galaxy S II, but will also let users define the real difference between Apple’s devices and Samsung’s.

British mountaineer, Kenton Cool, became the first person to post a tweet atop Mt. Everest. He also made a 3G call via the new 3G-enabled phone mast, installed by Nepali mobile carrier – Ncell – at the Everest base camp last October 2010. Kenton Cool has climbed the mountain eight times, but was not able to share the excitement of the experience before.

However, the whole affair was a rare and impressive marketing ploy for Samsung UK. The call and tweet that Kenton Cool made were done via Samsung Galaxy S II, and were designed to promote how great the handset is. Check out the whole experience at the video after the break.
