Legal I stopped following all the patent trolling in the mobile industry months ago because, you know, I have a life, but apparently some big ruling just got handed down in the United States: using three software patents, a patent troll from Cupertino has been given an injunction on Samsung's Galaxy Nexus, imposing a ban on the device. This patent trolling has to stop, blah, blah, we've all been here before. If you need me, I'll be over there on the sofa remembering the good old days when Cupertino was famous for great products, instead of infamous for its patent troll.

Except that the US is the only market that matters, not only due to sales but most (all) smartphone innovation is happening here. Well, Apple and Microsoft are innovating and Google is copying but still...

Go have a look at the figures. Samsung invests a whole lot more in R&D so you have clearly not read enough . . . .

Apple invests mainly in marketing, they were never innovative.

Use Google/Bing/DuckDuckGo and you will find.

That's not even remotely true you could tell by looking at who is copying who. Apple been innovating in computing before Samsung even thought of shipping its first personal computer. Smartphones are an extension of computers not mobile phones.

I think you need to double check your sources. The only market that matter is the one in where Apple is loosing market share:

In the US Apple’s share grew to 36% from only 25%, while in the UK it rose to 31% from 21% in the 12 weeks to end-November.
However in Europe’s biggest markets - Germany and France - the iPhone has lost some ground. In Germany the drop was from 27% to 22% and in France it was even bigger - Apple’s share slipped to 20% from 29%.
