    Default Apple sues Samsung for 'copying' the iPhone and iPad

    Whoa! In the world of big-time lawsuits, this must be just about the biggest. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Apple has sued Samsung Electronics for copying "the look and feel" of its iPad tablet and iPhone smartphone. This relates to the Samsung Galaxy S 4G, which bears more than a passing resemblance to the iPhone 3G / 3GS models, and the slightly less obvious Epic 4G, Nexus S, and Galaxy Tab (presumably the older 7-inch model, since the newer ones aren't out yet) devices. The claim for intellectual property infringement is phrased as follows:
    "Rather than innovate and develop its own technology and a unique Samsung style for its smart phone products and computer tablets, Samsung chose to copy Apple's technology, user interface and innovative style in these infringing products."
    The lawsuit was filed in the Northern District of California on Friday and seeks injunctions against Samsung, damages (both actual and punitive), and a finding that the infringement was willful. Lest we forget, the rarest outcome in such legal tussles is for an actual judgment to actually be handed down, so the greatest likelihood is that this will just lead to another round of grudging handshakes and licensing going one way with money going the other way, but still, it's fun to see the big dogs barking at each other.

    Another aspect to these proceedings that shouldn't be overlooked is that, on the software front, they boil down to iOS versus Android (again). When Apple calls Samsung uninventive in its user interface, it's talking more about Android's perceived imitation of the iPhone's interface than whatever TouchWiz tweaks Samsung has slapped on top. And hey, if you're going to sue Google indirectly, you can't leave a major player like Samsung outside the courtroom, it just wouldn't be fair.

    The new iOS 5 from Apple promises to offer best breed solutions to the end users through its robust design. The new iOS 5 is jam packed with rich feature sets that will enhance the overall utility of the devices in just about no time at all. Similar to the Android platform the new OS has menu driven interfaces for clubbing all notifications in one place. The end users can act on these at single go rather than hovering around for multiple attempts. The message feature is uniquely implemented in the new platform, allowing the iOS users to share messages amongst themselves at utter ease without any additional cost.
    Unlike Android, iOS platform has been more stable and bug free. Therefore, end users can leverage from the supreme class graphics and features at the same time. The iOS platform has been known for multitasking and multi threading features. The new iOS platform will also support Apple’s newest service offering, iCloud. It will allow users in storage and access of data wirelessly over the cloud platform and auto sync up the information across all iOS enabled devices without any manual intervention. The service will help one and all in optimizing costs without any constraints at all.
    Competing tablets and mobile OS’ are either based on Android or other unstable OS platforms. As a result, the innovation in their stream is lacking. The iPad and iOS apps are cutting edge in nature helping users to take full leverage of the rich hardware and software functionality of the device. There are no viruses and malwares for iOS in the market as a result, end user experience is higher when considered to the Android platform. Get going and look to benefit endlessly from the fine iOS 5 capabilities

    IOS is a much more mature and stable platform than Andriod and therefore does everything better than any andriod phone. Nobody cares about the number of handset models are available for the platform. That is not a choice people care about because ultimately they just buy one phone and want to have a choice in the applications and that is exactly where IOS provides a better choice. And most people buy an Andriod just because it is cheaper and no other reason.

    Android is gaining traction because of so many devices and tablets currently working and supporting Android - Win7 is a gone case - weak effort for MS to come back. Nokia Symbian is a lost case too. so the only thing left to compete is IOS.

    IOS still has traction but it wont be for long because of IOS being closed to other platforms - its all about innovation and brand value - how long that will suffice - its hard to tell - lets see what apple comes up with next.

    Android based devices are surely the future. there will be meeGo based devices by intel - all in all it will be ball game ... competition is good - benefits the consumer hahaha.
