Apple Says Android 4.1 Jelly Bean And Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Infringe Its Patents


The legal battle between Apple and Samsung has just reached another chapter: after the South Korean company’s claims that the iPhone 5 infringes on its patents, it was the turn for Apple to file a motion against Samsung. Apple’s lawyer said today that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean infringes on Apple’s patents.

Android Jelly Bean

From this perspective the Apple versus Samsung battle is shifted to another level, which was already there — Apple vs. Android — but until now we could see the two tech giants’ name on the surface. Yet with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean involved in patent infringement, this is a direct attack against Google, but packed in a legal battle within smartphone manufacturers.

As you may recall, Judge Lucy Koh ruled that the South Korean manufacturer infringed on several of Apple’s patents and ordered to pay more than $1 billion in damages. But Apple wasn’t satisfied with the result and sought to add more damage claims.

The case is scheduled for trial somewhere in 2014.

    Buddy………..instead of having a brain embolism about OS’s and hardware why don’t you use your time more productively and concentrate on learning how to spell & write English sentences better.

    hahahaha just hilarious!! Calling others isheep when you’re bleeding samsung! What should others call you? Galaxsheep? Droidatron?

    Keep an open mind! People can choose to buy what they want. Just cause you don’t like it doesn’t mean others should too. It’s all about preferences.

    Honestly, I’ve read through so many of these fan boy comments, and it’s like 90% droid fan boys calling Apple users nasty shit.

    I can guarantee you, a good portion of Android users don’t even use most of the functionality of the OS, because one, not everyone knows how to handle computers and electronics, even in this day and age. And two, people buy them because they are more affordable! And that’s a fact nobody can deny.

    And what pleasure are you even talking about? It’s just a phone for god’s sake! Do you experience pleasure by changing the theme of your phone?

    What have these isheeps ever done to you? They like to spend their money on a product they like and want, is that a crime? Does that have anything to do with you?

    Think about it and you’ll realize you’re just the same as these isheeps, except you’re on the other team, and with hate coming from nowhere. It is people like you that needs to WAKE UP and GROW UP

    Uh oh, Gary’s going to iSpank you!

    Hopefully Sir Ive can turn around our boring ass iOS and give us something that is new and refreshing or else we are all going to turn on Apple… Lucky for Apple, Samsung still using plastic to make their phones….

    I was wondering when some genius tool, would bring out the learn to spell and write english insult….so cliche in blogs these days.

    @fido…Dude hat’s off for your comments. Great comments all the blinded isheeps can go suck on something big!!! Yes apple makes some good stuff but i think most people would agree with me that, what we all crave for most in our ios devices is, fuctionality. ios is been the same since ios4 and the handsets have been the same for factor for what 3yrs now. its stupid isheeps like you that makes apple do what they do because you accept every crap they throw at you. if history teaches us anything, Rim, nokia, palm etc went the same route apple is going now and we all know what happened to these once big tech companies.
