BlackBerry-RIM Concedes Defeat

Posted: March 31st, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Android, Apple, Smartphone, Technoid Gadget News | Tags: , , , , | Comments Off on BlackBerry-RIM Concedes Defeat

Blackberry Concedes DefeatResearch In Motion – maker of BlackBerry – has suggested it will exit many consumer markets to focus on its business customers as the company swings to a loss.

New chief executive Thorsten Heins said via a conference call with market analysts that the company planned to “refocus on the enterprise business” and would not rule out a sale of the company, saying he would be open to hearing purchase offers.

RIM is losing the battle on the consumer front, the dominance of Apple’s iPhones and iPads as well as an onslaught of competitively priced Android and now Windows  powered devices onto the smartphone market has left RIM clearly on in the outer.

“We plan to refocus on the enterprise business and capitalise on our leading position in this segment,” Mr Heins said. “We believe that BlackBerry cannot succeed if we tried to be everybody’s darling and all things to all people. Therefore, we plan to build on our strength to go after targeted consumer segments.” Read the full article »»»»

Technoid Apple vs Motorola German Patent RulingA German court has found Apple in violation of a Motorola Mobility patent, ruling that Apple’s iPhone and 3G model iPads infringe on cellular communications, patents owned by Motorola Mobility that relate to General Packet Radio Service – GPRS – data packet transfer technology.

The patent-in-suit is European Patent 1010336 [B1] on a “method for performing a countdown function during a mobile-originated transfer for a packet radio system”. This patent is one of the two patents at issue in the action in which a default judgment was entered against Apple Inc. It was declared essential to the GPRS standard. It’s the European equivalent of U.S. Patent No. 6,359,898, a patent against which Apple raised a FRAND defense in the United States and which is being asserted in an action that was just transferred from the Western District of Wisconsin to the Northern District of Illinois.

Motorola said the ruling validated its “efforts to enforce its patents against Apple’s infringement” Read the full article »»»»

Apple Gets Samsung Galaxy 10.1 Banned, AGAIN!UPDATE!! The behemoth that is Apple has won another temporary injunction to stop rival Samsung from selling its Galaxy tablet computer in Australia. On Wednesday – just 2 days ago – we reported that the Federal Court had lifted a previous injunction, meaning Samsung could start selling its Galaxy Tab 10.1 at 4pm (AEDT) today. But Apple later launched an appeal to the High Court. The injunction means Samsung cannot sell the tablet computer until the case goes before the court on December 9. Apple says the South Korean company’s Google Android based Galaxy range of tablets and smartphones is too similar to its iPad and iPhone. The companies have been waging a battle in 10 countries over smartphone and tablet patents since April.
