Don't read too much into expert witness testimony. 'Experts' are basically a high-paid ho. I imagine Sammy has at least one of its own 'experts' lined up to rebut each of the Apple 'experts'. And this guy can't even get a website up.... Sheesh.

it seems samsung cheating the amount of sales units. I rad some news that samsung tops apple on smartphone sales in US but the report said differently. may be samsung feels choked and try to reduce the damages with manipulating sales report

Samsung is the top smartphone vendor in the world, but not in the US, where Apple is the top vendor.
You probably got confused by Alan F. in these articles:

Where he confused "mobile subscribers" (smart and non-smart phones) with smartphone sales.
Samsung is the top PHONE vendor in the US, not the top smartphone vendor.
If you look into any of the Nielsen reports you´ll realize easily that Apple doubles in sells Samsung in the US

That's what you get from bias articles. People getting mislead and forming wrong opinions based on those misleading words, and end up hating someone or something without knowing the whole truth.

I think in this case is just an honest mistake: I have been reading this site for quite some time already and Alan always favours Apple in his articles.
Check how he covers the trial and you´ll be able to see two things: he always gives the view that favours Apple more and suggest that Samsung is copying.

Stop contract that hurts both company. 8% samsung profit from apple.
For apple no company can make A processor. Even snapdragon have contract with samsung to create new 28nm processor.

But it hurts apple more

yeah, hopes it us at least a draw. we are as a consumers are absolutly in a great loss if apple won because of just its DESIGN not FUNCTIONS patents.

I also found so many user friendly functions on Android device while on Apple it is a pain in the ap(pl)e and a universal connection such us usb cable, earphone/handsfree/headphones, bluetooth connection etc.

no offense, it us just IMHO. Me just a humble anyway. heheheh.

The irony about all this is that while Samsung has been running ads calling Apple iPhone owners sheep, the evidence presented in the trial (so far) demonstrate that Samsung themselves tried to imitate the iPhone when designing the Galaxy S phones and their Touchwiz UI.

Samsung did what any business does when a competitor is beating it. They studied the competing product and company, and tried to figure out what made the other product popular, and how to overcome that.

Trust me, when Apple falls from grace, they will be studying the product that's most popular.

Samsung did imitated iPhone and iPad copied the look but not the feel. Samsung must clarify with Apple about "the feel" it is a crime accused the thing that you couldn't invented "the feel" or the air you breath.

The best outcome would be a total loss for Apple, and them covering Samsung's court costs. The most likely outcome is a split decision, with Samsung found infringing some of the closer call patents. But neither

Oops. Hit send.

But nowhere near $2 billion. And there is a very good chance that some of Apple's sillier and more blatantly stolen patents will be invalidated.
