The battle won, but the war isnt over. Samsung officially suing Apple over LTE.
Samsung Confirms: iPhone 5 To Join The Ranks Of Existing Patent Lawsuits | TechCrunch
"Samsung has been widely expected to add the iPhone 5 to its ongoing patent disputes with Apple, and today the Korean electronics company made that official, noting in a U.S. court filing uncovered by Reuters that it “will file, in the near future, a motion to amend its infringement contentions to add the iPhone 5 as an accused product.” Samsung expects the iPhone 5 to fall under the same areas of infringement as existing iPhone models."

Don't see a point in this lawsuit. The LTR chips are purchased from a 3rd party manufacturer and out into these phones. If Samsung has any case at all, it would be with the people making these chips that use the technology and coding.

I think that this will be a bigger problem: ITC to Investigate Apple for Patent Infringment, Motorola Looks to Ban iPhones, iPads, and Mac Computers – Droid Life
This is getting ridiculous!

The only people that really lose is us... Our outdated patent system was never intended to do what these big companies are doing to it. These wars just hurt our pocketbooks more than either of these companies. They both need to stop being babies and just start fair licensing of the patents until we can get the crappy system fixed.
I love how some of you make fun of the stupid samsung commercials. Probably were fans of the Justin Long commercials that did the same thing. I like Apple, but I really wanted to punch Justin Long in the face back then. Don't mind him so much now that they don't show those commercials anymore. His part in Zack and Miri was hilarious.

Keep in mind this is globally but impressive nevertheless. Also remember iPhone isn't available everything yet so over the next few weeks we will get a good number once it starts rolling out all over the world.

I'm not a lawyer, don't play one on tv and haven't been to a Holiday Inn Express in a number of years... but, would Apple be liable for any patent infringement if they purchased LTE radios and other parts from third parties? Wouldn't the third parties be at least as guilty (or more so) if, indeed, there is any patent infringement to be had?
More curious than anything at this point.

Re: The battle won, but the war isnt over. Samsung officially suing Apple over LTE.
I don't care who stole from whom(i think my grammar is correct), the SGS3 put a scare into Apple, and will destroy BB. Apple's fan base is rock solid and knowledgeable. BB's fan base is wavering and fanatic. Android's fan base is semi-loyal and learning. The world needs competition, to promote business growth. What the world doesn't need is...screaming fanatical fanboys who won't acknowledge both sides of an argument(it's their way, or the highway).
The end of my rant. These opinions are all mine.
