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.

As I said, trying to hammer down a point about sales numbers. That's really desperate.

What are you talking about? ... Do you want to say Android is not that popular? :-)

Yes, that is what I am saying. Googles convient "Activation" numbers are not sales.

When you look at the reality of it the facts I see are:

Sammy lies about their sales numbers and they are the "#1 vendor"

HTC is going bankrupt

Moto isn't growing much still posting losses

LG isn't growing much still posting losses

Sony isn't growing much still posting losses.

So you telling me ZTE and Huawei are selling 100's of millions of Android devices?? Lol. Really.

Cause when you look at actual useage (Devices online) the numbers are not there like Android fan boys and analysts say.

Profits don't show it ether. 100's of millions of Android devices sold and Apple making over 70% of mobile device sale profits?? How is that even close to possible??
