Legal "[...] tonight Apple entered into evidence in its trial with Samsung a document showing that it offered the South Korean company a licensing deal on some of its key technologies. Specifically, Apple offered to license the portfolio of patents if Samsung would pay $30 per smartphone and $40 per tablet." $30-40 per device is a lot of money for some trivial features (rounded corners, slide-to-unlock etc). No wonder Samsung declined.

My point is that Samsung lies about something simple as numbers of tablets sold (Even after being caught lying) why would I believe anything else that is said by them??

It would be one thing if the numbers were just a little off or you could easily say for example "We sold 100 into the channel but only 80 got sold to consumers." But in this case the numbers are off by millions.

Boo hoo, Samsung lied about their sales numbers. Terrible, lets hang them. And btw also everybody who likes to put a little nuance into the story ... Let's hang them too.

Disclaimer: i do not know anything about if they lied or if a analist company put those numbers out ...

Just you guys trying to hammer down this point make you look so desperate.
