Samsung sues Apple in Korea over Apple iPhone Notification Center

0. phoneArena 22 Dec 2012, 02:29 posted on

As soon as Apple released a Notification Center in 2011, many expected Google to sue Apple what would appear to be an infringement on an Android feature; now, Samsung is taking Apple to court in Korea over the Notification Center and it appears that the patent at the heart of the suit is not a FRAND related standards-essential piece of IP...

I think that Google will license the Notification patent to Apple, Google is more like a business partner to Apple than an enemy. Google needs iOS to deliver their service, and some extra money does no harm.

Frankly I hope I'm wrong.

I think you are. Apple have pay a fees for using notification center. But, honestly, SS shouldn't fall to Apple's level by suing everything. Apple did it own its own.

I think you are almost right, they will and should pay. Apple shouldn't be above their own tyrannical extortion methods. However, I do think as extra punishment, Tim Cook should get on his knees for Eric Schmidt; 'a little service please?!'

You wouldn't want Samsung to stoop to Apple's level, but when a bully keeps punching you over and over just because he's bigger, sometimes you have to throw some punches back, hoping to land one that's good enough to make him stop.

I don't support hypocrisy. Apple is one. Samsung is strong enough handle such situation. Apple is "trying" to bully him. I doubt SS needs such measures to fight Apple back. Infact, SS has landed a few punch. Its doing good in market, Premium Suite is awesome. I am using it. Leading in phablet category. But, apple getting a piece of its own medicine won't hurt.

They can remove it for all I care. I didn't use on any of my Android phones and I don't use it on Apple IPhone 5.

As for the court battles both of these kids need to play nice and quit the "take my ball and go home" BS. Consumers pay for this garbage.

My friend wake up here on PA itself Sales figures showed that Sammy is the leader in smartphones as they sold 59 million units whereas Apple was a far second with just 26 million units...so what lead exactly are you talking bout??

And as far as Sammy suing Apple....there's an old sayin mate....Payback is a Biy@ch!!!

I'm just shocked that iPhone has notifications; I thought they received alerts through an iOuija board.

He's right, the end is soon. It's Apple's own fault, they're playing in a rapidly changing and competitive market with a mindset of 2009; it's their own pompous attitude that will be their ultimate demise. I speak to more former iPhone owners on a daily basis now than ever before; they usually have opted for a GS3 or a Note 2.
Based on what they've said, they just got tired of the micro hardware updates; they wanted a bigger screen; they wanted a more powerful phone; they got tired of everything being proprietary; they're fed up with iTunes; or, all of the above.
The end is near: R.I.P. Apple!!

Good points, I recently sold my ip5 and got the note 2 for those same reasons. Ip5's a solid device, but apple is holding it up with their restrictive nature.

Sad really, truly sad. I always think of saying a little prayer for Apple when I go to church (problem is, I don't go to church) *-(

What on earth did Apple ever invent or make?

They stole every-thing and claim they invented and revolutionized it, what a joke, my foot!

Google could have sell the patent to Samsung for 1usd and buy back from Samsung with 1usd just to protect its partner
