Re: Android vs Apple
Samsung has lost its lawsuits in the EU against Apple. They've also lost most of them in their own country of S Korea.

Re: Android vs Apple
Sammy's' patient portfolio is pretty impressive but it's not a US company so our judges are sympathetic to Apple. European courts tell Apple where to stick it.

Re: Android vs Apple
Not at all! But it's time for Samsung to do some of the inventing.

Apple Is All About waging Mad-Dog War to warn its opponents.
Apple is willing to spend billions of dollars against any opponent who violates its patents. It doesn't matter if it ultimately wins or not.  It doesn't matter if it spends every billion it has.

Just showing any and all opponents that is is willing to go MAD-DOG to an all out war, means that any opponent better watch its step and not blatantly copy Apple's intellectual property.

Even Samsung realizes this.  This is why Samsung - with all of its lies and blatant copying history - has avoided blatantly copying Apple with its recent products.  

What they are currently waging was done by Samsung years ago.

Samsung has deliberately tried to differentiate itself from Apple even if it copies some general theme (such as fingerprint readers) that is not protected intellectual property.  For example, Samsung has included fingerprint readers in its latest greatest smartphone - to copy Apple. But it did not blatently violate any of Apple's patents for fingerprint readers.

Re: Is Apple selling betamax
Apple is doing pretty well there. We know that most of Samsung's smartphone sales are on the low end, from which they make little profit. We also know that Apple outsells Samsung on the high mid and high end by several times. In addition, we also know that more Android users move to iOS than the other way around. The new iPhones should make further dents in Samsung's most profitable businesses. As we all should know, Samsung,s sales and shipment numbers are just guesses. What's the likelihood that real world Samsung sales are close? Not too likely. Every time we see Samsung's real quarterly numbers, from lawsuits, they turn out to be about half of what clueless analysts, and both Gartner and IDC claim. Tablet sales are even worse, sometimes being no more than 10% of what the shipment numbers claim. So, knowing all of that, which company could end up in trouble?

Re: Android vs Apple
That's not likely as Samsung has already used all of its ammunition. The patents that aren't licensed under FRAND are junk patents, and both the USA and EU governments have banned motorola and Samsung from using them for injunctions or large monetary fees. In other words, Samsung's got nothing.
