The touchless gesture area that is supposed to appear in the 2012 iPhone is already coming in a Galaxy S3 this fall, says Eldar Murtazin, complete with an edge-to-edge high-res display, and that might have made Apple file the lawsuit...

I know that you think flip out it's shit! Don't think so Motorola still way better than samsung know that doesn't has fantasy staff that samsung copied from Apple! But when it comes to functional and call quality responsive touch screen no LAG! Still Moto way way better than samsung.

I like moto... not much to complain there, haven't tested Samsung much so I cant talk bout it... but phones like flip out cause so much trouble for companies sometimes, thats why I mostly tell people to get hight end android phones when they are getting on a new contract (maybe not the newest on the market but you can find a much higher end phone for few extra bucks) but fuck it sometimes we cant prevent things because my phone died and I ordered a defy to replace it while my contract ends

Samsung must stop selling components to Apple until Apple drop all the crazy lawsuits.

As much as samsung would love to cut supplies for apple, they can't do that unless their contract is done with apple. Sammy's ass will be in real big trouble if they do that.

well glad it works good for you :P bought the defy cuz mine suffered an accident and plan on using it to go to road trips when I get my new contract phone, may be the Atrix since it's new feature calls my attention, I imagine myself doing slideshows at college with it or a tablet (eee pad or Xoom maybe, I'm open to most things)

That is amazing... Wait for a company to develop a new technology, then patent a product design that the new tech is most likely to be used in, wait for that company to develop their own product to use the new tech, and then sue them for using their own tech in their own product... It's so brilliant! I wish I thought of that.

Look up a company called Rambus. That's all they do and they've made millions from their lawsuits. They don't even make products anymore they just trademark and patent ideas then sue if anyone comes close to releasing a product like it.

Atrix man i love this phone its fablous phone, but Motorola made a big mistake when they locked the bootloader but still the best Android phone i think cause 3 or 5 gadget sites rate this phone 9, 9.5 out of 10 one of those sites PA. played with xoom 2 days ago in store to be honest its nice fast fablous hardwaer and good looking tab still a bit laggy taht noticed, the thing when you watch a video review about xoom tablet it looks ugly kind of huge A... tab but in real this thing looks amazing and unique fablous design and look.

Man, i hate apple, obviously the iphone and galaxy would end up looking the same because most of the hardware in the i pphone is made by samsung. Why cant samsung just stop supplying them? Or fake delays or something? Like their cars, American phones have no chance against the upcoming asian products. Imagine GM suing toyota because they didnt wanna share technology and are also making a vehicle with 4 wheels. Its ridiculious. Samsung all the way. I will never by an apple after this.

I think we are all getting tired of Apple's belly aching here, its sickening. First they sued HTC, so they might not be able to bring their handsets to the US, now an ongoing battle with Samsung, Apple its time to grow up, you don't own the playing field, if you can't develop your own technology and impliment,please step off the stage, exit stage left.

This idea that if we can't rule we will stop whoever doesn't comply is simplistic playground polititcs ,but that's my own view. I hope people see through Apple's highly educated approach to business. But then again, with so many poisoned with Job's Kool-aid, it stands to reason. If Sammi wants to use their own tech, and not permit Apple to, then cry and get over it.

I was thinking of some new Apple apps:
iBaby, iCry, iSue(I'm sure thatll be popular), iRule, iAche and ofcourse iKool-aid. Oh by the way, I'm not an OS fan of any OS, I've owned and use Apple products as well as other OS products over the last few years, just think Apple's behaviour is less than desired. But as the saying goes "If you can't beat then, sue them" right ? Cheers

Apple itself is great, but it lives in its own little world, sorry to say. Look at the battle with Microsoft - although people really hate Microsoft for their products and business practices, Microsoft products have always dominated the PC market. Apple makes blackboxes. Go use them guys, they wouldn't break, but they are boring. If you are a programmer, Apple sucks. Microsoft is so much more interesting. Have you ever heard of Apple Server? Apple SQL Server? Apple Web Essentials? Apple Cloud? Boring. From iPhone 3G to iPhone 4, there are changes but they are just the same with some little things. Added Folders in iOS4 - the biggest deal. Nothing spectaular. And if you go tell them you are doing little tricks on your iPhone Apple didn't tell you to, oh Lord, you must be freaking them out. Hands off.....

Samsung from the very beginning has set out to bring so much innovation and creativity to make itself stand out and become threats to other companies. Look at televisions. It used to be Panasonic, Sharp, Sony. Now, you see Samsung TV everywhere. They sell their things cheap, you might say. Well, people wouldn't buy s**tty things. And Toyota started selling their Lexus vehicles very cheap, flipped the Germans in one night. Then what? Look at where they are now.

iPhone is a great product. But the progress has been slow. They have used up their innovations, ending up with some new iPhone's that are just so similar to the first iPhone. The game is over. From leading the market to playing catch up games, and now falling behind. They need some new blood with really great minds into the future. Apple did, but then stopped. You can't control how people use technology. People look for technologies that they want.

The Samsung Galaxy s2 was better than iphone 4 so of course s3 is going to be better.

Apple is a marketing company that creates product "mockups" in a simple word. They contract big companies like Samsung - to bring these "mockups" to life in Samsung's production factories.

Nobody seems to know or even care that Apple steals ideas from Japan and Korea, these two markets have such advanced technologies that are far yet to be implemented in USA or Europe.

USA and Europe are up to 5 years far back in creating tech innovations as opposed to Japan and Korea especially.

I personally respect Samsung, even though it is near the same monster as Apple.
