Apple Vs Samsung

US Samsung Galaxy S II Android invasion begins [Competition]

Phil from Android Central went and got his geeky little hands on the new Samsung Galaxy S II phones set to hit US carriers soon -- and come this fall go up against iPhone 5. And... they're big. Up to 4.52-inches of big. So big I'm wondering why Samsung didn't just simplify their branding and call them Galaxy Tab 4.5. (Maybe because Spring Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch just rolls off the tongue so much more easily?)

Samsung claims Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey as prior iPad art

No, you didn't read the headline wrong -- Samsung is claiming their Galaxy Tab 10.1 couldn't be a copy of Apple's iPad because... it was copying the earlier movie prop from Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. Well, okay, not copying -- more like maintaining the design elements were commonplace in pop culture, especially science fiction. One of the ways to invalidate a patent is to prove prior art -- that someone had the idea before the company who was awarded the patent.

The difference between Apple iPad 2 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet commercials

Samsung's new Galaxy Tab 10.1 commercials, airing in the UK, are focused on being Faster (HSPA+ networking), Thinner, and Lighter.

Apple's fist iPad 2 commercial, aired back on April 2, had a different focus.

This is what we believe. Technology alone is not enough. Faster, thinner, lighter, those are all good things. But when technology gets out of your way, everything becomes more delightful, even magical. That's when you leap forward. That's when you end up with something... like this.

Hey, at least they weren't selling Tegra 2 processors.

Google says Apple sues rather than innovates. Google's problem is Apple does both.

Former Google CEO, current Google Executive Chairman, Eric Schmidt, had this to say about Apple patent infringement suits against Android manufacturers.

"We have seen an explosion of Android devices entering the market and, because of our successes, competitors are responding with lawsuits as they cannot respond through innovations. I’m not too worried about this.”

Because a) he's not the one being sued and b) it's nonsense.
