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...

and the color white. remember how up and arms they were the first time major android phones came in white?

regardless of the fact that the G1, mytouch3g, and Hero all came in white before the iphone did.. lolol.

In fact... it was the white-box Chinese manufacturers like CECT that made the first white device that looked like an iPhone... it was called the HiPhone mini, or something like that, and it was white before the genuine iPhone ever was as I recall...

The irony of the android troll pissed at Apple for banning products calling for a product ban on Apple

He didn't say ban, he said stop buying. Apple wants to eliminate people's choices, so let's eliminate Apple instead. I would hate to see them go, so I would hope they would change their ways before that happens.

so let me get this straight. fandroids are against banning product because it eliminates choices. but networdumb over here. wants to prevent people to have a choice and buy Apple products.. wow sometimes I wonder if people here have a GED.. I have grammar issues but you fandroids have bigger issues.

Are we reading the same words here? He didn't say ban Apple, what he is suggesting is a boycott. A boycott isn't forced on anyone, its the exact opposite of what Apple is doing.

Why is it that when Apple want to limit our choices, iPhone fans cheer. And when Android fans say they want these devices, iPhone fans boo? If it isn't a product you would ever consider buying, why do you care what happens to it. This shows just how bad of a double standard you guy have when it comes to anything that doesn't have an Apple logo on it. You guys are alway quick to point a finger, but never self examine.

" If it isn't a product you would ever consider buying, why do you care what happens to it.".. it come from you. give it to fandroids. so they can apply it. I don't have double standard... I don't want any product banned.. like I said before. I just consume the product I don't mix what Apple does to competitors, that's why I don't get up in arms on the Android products hold at customs.. or an Apple product.. I f you want something people will find ways to get it.. if they banned Apple. I will still get my iphone without the crying..

So for the most part, you and Networkdood agree that none of these products should be banned. This is good! But how do we convience Apple that banning their competition is not the way to compete? Suing over rectangles and menu buttons is destroying the industry that many of us love and making it into a monopoly. How much more expensive would the world become if Apple does this with every industry they enter? Monopolies typically are not good for the consumer.

see that's were we disagree,,,, Apple works hard to look for the best design,,, hardware, software. screens. every detail... Jobs has been dead for almost 8 months and was working on the iphone5 before the iphone4s...the ipad took hard work because there was nothing at that time.. to have Samsung Apple main component supplier to openly take most of Apple ideas.. ( they knew the most of any other supplier) and released a very similar products.. if they feel they have the right to do it . by all means... I am a consumer not a lawyer..

I am against any company who hinders my right of choice.

Funny, just the other day, the wife and I are in Monterey and I was using her phone.
iPhoners talk about about lag and Android, and yet the iphone 4S does exhibit a little bit of ....LAG. Now, granted by RAZR is on AXIOM B21 ICS 4.0.4, and may have had the same amount of lag as the iphone 4S has, which is nominal, but I can honestly say that I was surprised by this as Taco and G-KING repeatedly tell everyone differently. My RAZR has less lag than the iphone 4S and can do more than an iphone 4S can ever dream of. Wow, you cannot even add ringtones to a non-jailbroken iphone....sad...

Dear Apple, accept the fact the other companies have been making Better and Nicer products than your overrated phone for years now! And start acting like a real competitor by doing something about your product line instead of crying like a little P&$$y who got their sucker taken away. Apple, you will NEVER be the only one, you should NOT be the only one (especially when you are clearly NOT the best in the market), no company should be the only one in any area of the market, there are laws against the type of crap you are trying to pull Apple. Your ridiculous patent crap Apple is only a proof that your company itself realizes the fact that other companies are making superior products that you can NOT fully compete with. GO F%#K yourself Apple! Always polite, BogRRR

apple know the sgs3 is the best phone out there at the moment it raped the pre order sales of even the iphone 4s by more than double not even including the usa and canada. they cant take it that samsung sgs series phones will always walk over what ever apple device comes out and apple are trying to stop the sales. sad really, how about this apple stop trying to sue everyone and instead spend that time making a better product with the current years technology and not last years or even two years ago, i mean we are in 2012 and still no proper bluetooth, normal files transfer or radio???

We should thank apple instead...because of them, we all know that these poor companies are being bullied by the American Giant, we would of course, support the Taiwanese company (HTC) and Samsung more. So thanks apple... for what you have done. ''WELL DONE''....... NOW SAMSUNG AND HTC, WHAT U ALL SHOULD DO IS TO JOIN FORCES AND MAKE A PHONE! AND CRUSH THE iPHONEY 5!

GO ANDROID, HTC AND SAMSUNG, GO!

It may be an iDevice, but the smashing is still wasteful. Not impressed.

It's not right how everything taco says gets hidden, for no other reason than who he is. Frankly it borderlines harassment.
