Legal Well. Raise your hands if you didn't see this one coming. Nobody is safe from Apple's and Microsoft's legal crusade against Android, not even Samsung, which supplies a lot of chips to Apple. Apple has sued Samsung for copying Cupertino's look and feel in various Samsung devices. This is about as surprising as the tides rolling in. Update: And Samsung's going to strike back. Hit 'm hard, Samsung. I don't like you anymore than any of these other patent trolls, but maybe we'll finally see it all crash and burn.

Apple terrified of Android.

Apple is terrified of Android.

In Australia the Samsung Galaxy Tab can be purchased unlocked from Telstra for AUD299 online. The iPad 2 with 3g costs AUD729 (with a 2-3 week wait).

Cheap 10" Android tablets such as the Zenithink ZT-180 cost less than AUD200 (and dropping rapidly). They will probably be a little over AUD100 by Xmas. I bought one secondhand on Ebay for AUD86 two days ago.

Android phones are now available for as little as AUD99 eg the Telstra Smart-Touch.
