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.

Galaxy Nexus teardown shows a deeper look at Samsung's first Android Ice Cream Sandwich phone

Experts at iFixit have managed to get their hands on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Nexus and placed it under the knife to see what’s under the hood. The first Android Ice Cream Sandwich gets dismantled and stripped down to its basic components and shows that it’s one of Samsung’s most simple, yet innovative gadgets.

The teardown confirms that the Galaxy Nexus will be running on Texas Instrument’s OMAP 4460 1.2 GHZ dual-core processor and is carrying the same brand for its audio and power management. Other exciting features revealed were Bosch’s pressure sensor for its “barometer” feature and a near-field communicator (NFC) located inside the battery’s foil cover, which can be useful for payment apps like Google Wallet.

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’s Twitter Account, Accidentally Reveals Galaxy S II Processor Details

Written on September 14, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

Samsung unintentionally tattled the processor info for T-Mobile's Galaxy S II model.

It seems that Samsung’s Twitter account, @GalaxySsupport, accidentally revealed the type of processor that will be included on T-Mobile’s upcoming variant of Galaxy S II.

Twitter user, Julian Medeiros, pinged the Samsung Galaxy S account to ask about the handset’s possible processor. He then found out that the manufacturer is targeting for a dual-core option. Unfortunately, @MedeirosMusic was not satisfied with the answer, forcing Samsung’s account to reveal the official processor info. He got the answer: “The Samsung Galaxy S2 comes with a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm APQ8060 processor.”

Anyway, this unintentional revelation would not be considered as a “confirmation” from Samsung, since they haven’t publicized any official reports with regards to this matter. The 1.5GHz Qualcomm APQ8060 processor has been speculated as the possible replacement for T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S II’s Exynos chipset.

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.
