This is not that easy for SS to pull it off. The problem is the OEMs depend heavily on chip makers for the whole package: chips, modems, software... That's almost half the device or even more.

But SS competes directly with those OEMs and I don't think many of them will be comfortable using SS chips.

The irony is Apple is the manufacturer that can feel secure the most using SS manufactured chips b-c Apple design the chips themselves.

With Samsung chips, Chinese products will improve in quality, killing the iPhone in China using an inferior processor.

so, it will improve its quality by using an inferior processor? Yep, that makes sense ...

Well, this situation is all APPLE's fault. Did any of you really expect Samsung to continue doing business with a company who is suing them for things like having a rectangular phone?

You need to go back in time to the Galaxy S with TouchWiz. There were similarities to the icons, etc...There is no denying that. Samsung was smart to move away from the interface of iOS. Functionality was different b/c of Android 2.1-2.3 than iOS, but their was influence of the iPhone. You don't say that now b/c of the Galaxy S3 success, but lawsuits are filed months prior to the hearing, in which 2012 was a big win for Apple.
