Apple I have absolutely no respect for you. The saying is true, "If you can't innovate litigate."

Take siri for example... Apple acquired in 2010 from Dragon, now take 'Google now' 5 years in the making and now a final product.. wonder why apple didnt jump at Google Now? .. that is why! ...they are running scared their mobile phone market shares are less than Samsung HTC and Motorola (all android phones) there are about a million Android phone activation a day.. If i were apple ill do everything i can to halt its sales.

Yes a 4" screen is quite revolutionary. Oh and don't forget about turn-by-turn navigation.

It's interesting to follow the commentary on all this, however, it is just that: commentary. Tech blogs can only scratch the surface on the actual intricacies of patent lawsuits. Fun stuff, easy way to get eyeballs-to-ads... ;-) Real news is better :-)

how pathetic.. Ive used both the Iphone and the Galaxy Nexus and there is no similarity if anything the Galaxy Nexus is a better product (besides the camera) .. its like apple says 'i made the wheel' now you pay for the license.

The software in Galaxy Nexus is from Google not from the Great Pirate King Samsung...

You're trolling wrong. You have to hate EVERYTHING associated with Android. And now that I think about it...I hope Apple finds another manufacture for screens, chips, ram, and whatever else Samsung helped with in the iPhone, iPad. Since they are thieves, stealing, counterfeiters.

Did someone on here use Apple and innovation in the same sentence? I must admit, I fell of my chair laughing! I think I am going to sue Apple for my back injury...lol. How many parts of the iPhone are made by Apple, I wonder!! Apple, go Fly Uncle Charlie's Kite yourself!

I can care less who wins, the only one winning are the carriers, rapping you guys day after day. Having said that, do you guys really think the average person reads tech blogs? Most don't know or can care less about the patent wars. Is almost like building a pc, you can go to newegg get quality parts and build your own, average joe can care less, they are going to go to Walmart, Costco and make their respective purchase, even thought they paid more for low quality and specs. You may rip taco back and forth, but come the day of the release of the iPhone, Apple is going to sell millions. In the US is about perception and brand recognition.
