Apple iPhone and Apple iPad could be banned in U.S. following ITC patent review

0. phoneArena 25 Jun 2012, 22:09 posted on

The ITC on Monday said it would review an April ruling that found that Apple had infringed on Motorola patent relating to Wi-Fi; if so inclined, the Judge could put a ban on the import into the U.S. of Apple's devices that include the offending technology...

Why do Majority of People Love Apple Products? Because it's very easy to use, super simple, boring for those advanced tech people. People do not buy Android devices because they think they're hard to use, and hype itself. An Android device is not hard to use *well unless if you have a low IQ on gadgets, yeah maybe* Apple is very simple and easy to use, thus making it the "all age" product, ugh...my goodness even my grandmother can use one, that's how freaking easy it is. Android is for the advance users who know how to tweak+customize their phone like a boss. Lemme have a guess, your not very tech savvy right? That's why you use iOS? Just asking man, no hard feelings :))

I have seen an iPhone 4 lock up while looking at a video clip of a school play..

Dont believe the myth like so many others..the iPhone is like any smartphone.

Before you try to debate this...please take a look in ANY iPhone troubleshooting forum section on the web. Start with macrumors.com.

half of the times, when an iOS app crashes, it crashes without notifying the user.

Never had more issues with apps crashing more often on one OS than the other. Owned 3 Androids and 2 iPhones.. and the Apps aren't often made by the hardware company anyways.

RAZR MAXX has a much longer battery life than any iPhone and it's faster.

You're joking right? Lol. I get about 8 hours of screen on time with my iPhone. I got about 2-3 with an android. And that's with turning off every toggle. Android is a battery hog system. And I know how to use my phone. I have rooted and jailbroken both phones. The iPhone is wayyyy better with the tweaks.

iPhone 4S battery = 1432 mAh

Motorola RAZR MAXX battery = 3300 mAh

Internet is full of test which proves that Motorola RAZR MAXX has longer battery life than iPhone 4S.

Not at all, the RAZR MAXX lasts much longer than the iPhone 4S. Plus the RAZR MAXX has Lte, a faster processor and a bigger and better screen to light up and it still manages to last longer.

Maybe you should upgrade your ancient Android to a more recent device if you only get 2-3 hours. I call BS

Your most likely using the G1 if you're getting "2-3" hours.

The Razor MAXX gets 23 hours with LTE, 4.3" screen, ICS (now) and a faster processor.

Educate yourself by Googling information before you bash an Android device. Not only do you fail at trolling, you also praise Apple like its a church, which is sad honestly.

You DO realize every iteration of the iphone has had serious issues at launch correct? Up tp and including BATTERY issues, charging issues etc.
Oh and the antenna flaw that apple STILL has yet to admit was a poor design. Kind of an important feature on a, y'know, PHONE.

This is exactly how I feel every competent cell phone user should feel about BOTH OSs. You can dislike aspects of the OS, all that simply means is that it wasn't made for you. If you really want to get into the nuts and bolts of your phone, then Android has ALWAYS been the choice. No one with a reasonable amount of knowledge about cell phones should contest that. Different strokes for different folks, people.

....or you could ignore common business sense and mindlessly root for Apples mobile devices to get banned. I'm sure you would all be thirlled if say, Time Warner Cable became essentially the only cable provider in the US. ;)

Perhaps if Apple gets banned in the US they will stop all other nonesense patent lawsuits and come to agreements with eachother

Never happen. Apples business model is essentialy to c*ck block every one else and remove choices rather than making a superior product.

If this actually happens, I'm going to laugh at Apple so hard. They deserve it for playing this dirty game. But at the same time, I don't want this to be a lawsuit battle between two great companies. Let the market operate freely which only makes it better for the consumer. If there is competition, much better products come out every year. I don't want this to be a one-sided market.

Apple sucks real bad on disputing in any way...they f**king call CDMA signal processing patent to be frand and their s**t slide to unlock patent a valid one...not only that they tried to ban htc phones for making emails and phone no. actionable items...how pathetic is that...I really wanna show _|_ to apple executives!

I hope ITC goes through with this.. Apple definetely had it coming, its pathetic to see Verizon and Nokia side with Apple though. Its no surprise that Microsoft sided with Apple, seeing as how Motorola and Microsoft had a legal battle over patents not to long ago. In my honest opinion , I would love it if the Iphone and Ipad were banned from the United States. Apple has been pathetic, repeatedly suing Samsung and HTC and trying to stop new Android phones that are better than the Iphone from entering the U.S
