Hardware, Embedded Systems "The Q1 2013 numbers from IDC, a technology and telecommunications research firm who keeps track of this sort of thing, show that Android tablets now lead the market with a 56.5-percent share. The 27,800,000 units shipped in the quarter is a 247-percent improvement from this time last year, when just 8,000,000 units were shipped. It's important to note that this increase doesn't come at the expense of Apple, who shipped 65.3-percent more tablets in Q1 2013 than they did in Q1 2012 - it shows the market is growing, and the lions share of new purchases are Android." While Android's market share growth scares me, it's good that it's not really harming the competition. Also, maybe this will be the carrot for developers to improve Android tablet applications.

JAlexroid is right and its worth noting that the particular jurisdiction at hand is especially tilted towards granting such injunctions. It probably explains the wave of litigation there.

However, you (as usual) provide an irrational and incorrect twist on things.

The concept of prior art still exists in a first to file world. You have a dangerous misunderstanding of patent law.
