PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In case you were still doubting whether or not Apple's lawsuits against Samsung were a case of 'if you can't compete, litigate', Samsung's financial results should seal the deal. The company shipped round and about 50 million smartphones, twice as many smartphones as Apple shipped. So, not only is Android doing better on smartphones than iOS, there's now also a single manufacturer outselling Apple. Oh, the next avenue for de-emphasizing this achievement has already reared its head: Samsung has a wider portfolio, and as such, the comparison isn't fair. Nonsense, of course - Volkswagen sells lots more models than, say, Mazda, but that doesn't mean you can't compare them. Maybe, just maybe, having a wide portfolio of devices to meet the various different needs of the market is simply a very good strategy. It'll be interesting to see just how much Apple can take back with the next iPhone, especially since the full potential of the Galaxy SIII hasn't been realised yet and will be accounted for in Samsung's next quarter as well. Fun, such a fight between titans. Just too bad one of the two titans plays dirty by opting for the courtroom.

Why is Osnews allways stating that there's just one party suiing the other? They both filed suits at one and each other.

Btw; own à galaxy s and an htc and they both suck. Rebooting randomly, crashing at will. It's like running Windows 95 all over again.

Defensive vs. offensive. There's a difference.

I understand the analogy a bit, but its also kind of like arguing who the good guys are in a nuclear war.

You're own article Thom; http://www.osnews.com/story/25174/Samsung_Launches_Offensive_Agains...
They both are offensive patent trolls.

I really get the impression as of late, that when it's an Apple vs. Samsung/Android article, you take the Samsung/Android side. Where's the article about Samsung (possibly) quite knowingly copied Apple's iPhone? Quite some other site's have those; http://allthingsd.com/20120725/apple-google-warned-samsung-against-...

(PS; I'm an Apple and Linux sysadmin, love Apple for the desktop and the user experience somewhat more. Just don't like android for what it is and the experience that it gives me).

If I could get a phone that ran Windows 95, I would buy it this very second.
