Samsung intends to fight Apple's product ban request against the Galaxy S III in the US

0. phoneArena 07 Jun 2012, 09:13 posted on

Samsung plans to "demonstrate to the court that the Galaxy S III is innovative and distinctive", which it is to do before June 21, when the Galaxy S III is supposed to hit shelves on most major US carriers. This will give its sales a head start against Apple's next iPhone, whenever it launches this year, and if Cupertino succeeds with the preliminary ban, things can get ugly, considering how long these lawsuits take to be resolved...

The hypocrisy is astounding - to sue for copying at the same time you announce you're working on a Galaxy Note type of stylus, after years of saying that a stylus was a fail.

1. Apple didn't announce anything about a stylus. They filed a patent.

2. The patent read that their stylus is unique in its function

on #2... they just essentially patented Samsung's S-Pen from the Galaxy Note, which already existed.

oh wow what a great way to start the day... another apple law suit.
SGS3 has nothing similar to the iphone or to any of apples products .. like remixfa said S-voice is an upgrade to their long standing android voice navigation app.
Apple is stupid and will only get more recognition for samsung

Oh come on. Apple , Seriously? Siri is not your proprietary. You acquired Siri Inc. You didn't invent anything. So stop saying like you own the voice assistant serivce. Don't try to lawsuit on every single Android devices when you can't compete. Stop it and Invent yourself. Jezzzzzzz.

Please, All Samsung has to do is challenge Apple : Name one of the new features (other than S-Voice, which is a voice assistant which is widely available on Android Market) that is on the current iPhone.

Popup play? Nope
Smart Stay? Nope
S-Beam? Nope
720P display? Nope

Wanna bet Apple will "innovate" these features into the new iPhone?

Apple is the most pathetic company to have ever existed on the globe,instead of wasting money on lawsuits on a company innovating things they can't why dont they use it for R&D. i like apple products but seriously there is a limit to this nonsense, APPLE CROSSED THE THRESHOLD LONG TIME AGO!!!

There are very few companies that I take a stand against but Apple is one of them. I will never support a company like Apple. They will never get my business and the business of anyone in my home. Take a stand people against a company like this. Remind them that it is the consumer that is in charge not the company.

This has been a great week. Product leaks building up the hype for WWDC next week. I'm very excited and now these product bans to put frosting on the cake. Looks like it will be a rough summer for Samsung and the soulless android crew.

Apple shouldn't be the developer for the world. Stop copying!!

'Good artists copy, great artists steal'

"Stop copying.". Was that comment directed towards Apple. Seeing that they are on the record acknowledging their copying. You can't be that much of a hypocrite.

Actually, they are not acknowledging that they have copied anything... they have only acknowledged a little IP theft, because they are such great artists!

... but you want Apple to be the developer for the world... just need those pesky HTC and Samsung companies to get litigated out of existence first...
