Sammy has it right, dominate by making a superior product, giving the consumer what they want, and using hard work and money to be on the cutting edge. Why can't everyone strive to do the same to dominate ;-)

Yea, instead of suing your competitors using weak patents and FALSIFYING evidence??

doesnt matter, they are already being sued for making inferior garbage products.

Apple patented selling consumer goods for higher price than cost of production, ie, "making a profit" so this is just more hutzpah for Apple's lawyers!

Nothing new, except for the new moniker. Samsung and Nokia have been releasing low-end to high-end phones pre-iphone. So what's new?
There was no way that Samsung could've taken over Nokia if not for Apple disrupting the mobile phone culture. Apple created a sweeping trend, and Samsung quickly embraced and adopted Apple's approach, while Nokia resisted, which caused Nokia to get left behind and Samsung gaining ground.
Samsung should be thankful of Apple's entry into the mobile phone business.

while yes you are correct about the disruption that apple caused, the android revolution was coming with or without apple, since it was technically developed first. Would they be so far along without the competition? who knows. Would they be even farther along without the baseless and falsified legal bullying? yea probably.

IDevices came out first before android devices. Whether or not android was going to be released, it doesn't change the fact that Apple hit it off first. No one knows what would've happened if Apple didn't release the iphone or the ipad. You could only speculate, while the iDevices' success is a fact, not a speculation. But of course an android fanboy like you would rather give more credit to a speculation than a fact. That's how you android fanboys think. Illogical.
