Samsung Set For Record Profit, THANKS GSIII

Posted: October 5th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Samsung, Smartphone, Technoid Computer News | Tags: , , , , , | Comments Off on Samsung Set For Record Profit, THANKS GSIII

Samsung Set For Record Profit, THANKS GSIIIOur favourite Korean consumer electronics behemoth, Samsung, looks set to post another record quarterly profit on the back of its latest offering the 4G Galaxy SIII smartphone and Galaxy Note tab/phone hybrid.

The company is forecasting a $AU7 billion September-quarter profit, off the back of $45 billion in 3 month sales. That profit forecast is slightly ahead of the average forecast by 16 analysts surveyed by Reuters. Samsung shares were up 0.3 per cent in early Korean trade, and are up almost 30 per cent so far this year.

Analysts say provisions for the $US1 billion payout to Apple for patent breaches, as well as increased competition from Apple’s iPhone 5 are likely to see Samsung’s profit tail off a little in the last quarter of the year to somewhere closer to $AU6 billion :: Read the full article »»»»


Samsung Slips Passed Apple on 4G

Samsung Slips Passed Apple on 4G - Samsung's 4G PhabletThe war between Apple and Samsung over design and technology patents has cast Samsung as the underling, while Apple is painted as pushing at the edges of innovation. Ahh what a short sighted world we live in, I’d argue with such commentary, going so far as to say that most commentators have things wrong, very wrong.

While Samsung may have a little eggroll on it’s face over claims of plagiarism, the Korean consumer electronics behemoth is definitely no slouch on the technology front, winning the much more important war on patent innovations, particularly when it comes to 4G and it’s application in the mobile device wars.

4G isn’t so much a new technology but  a better use of existing technologies, Samsung has been working on 4G since 2005 and has pretty much perfected it’s use in mobile devices. The higher and more responsive – up to 10 x 3G – bandwidth of 4G is well suited to tablets and smartphones.

In Australia, Telstra has the largest geographic coverage in 4G and has been upgrading mobile cell towers to 4G since 2010, with a consumer roll-out from late in 2011. The benefits of running mobile devices on 4G are real, the simultaneous speed is pretty outstanding :: Read the full article »»»»

Posted: March 30th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Cult of Apple | Tags: , , , , | Comments Off on AUSTRALIA: Apple Offers iPAD Refunds 4G Non Compatibility

AUSTRALIA APPLE OFFERS IPAD REFUNDOur favourite tech behemoth Apple is once again in an übergadget pickle.  The beheomoth has been forced to offer a refund to people who bought its new iPAD, which it admits is not compatible with Australia’s Telstra 4G network.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission – ACCC – has taken legal action against Apple for what it claims are misleading statements over its new iPad.

Lawyers for the ACCC have accused Apple of breaching consumer law by promoting the device as being able to connect to high-speed 4G mobile networks using a sim card.

The Federal Court heard Apple ignored warnings from the ACCC and was told the day before the iPad’s launch that it was misleading consumers.

ABC.net court correspondent Sarah Farnsworth reported that Apple’s lawyers argued it was never specified the iPad could connect to Telstra’s network, but told the court the device is compatible with other networks that by international standards are deemed 4G :: 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 »»»»

Samsung Galaxy Tablet PC ON SALE in AUSTRALIA

Apple has lost an Australian High Court bid to stop Samsung selling its Galaxy Tablet PC in Australia.

The Full Bench of the High Court of Australia has ruled in Samsung’s favor, saying the argument from Apple’s lawyers had insufficient prospect of success.

Last month, the Australian Federal Court reversed a prior ruling that banned the sale of the Samsung Galaxy S 10.1 Tablet PC in Australia. The Court noted that a prior ruling granting Apples requested ban on the product had not properly weighed the strength of Apples case.

Apple was today seeking special leave to appeal a previous decision of the same court, if granted it would have been unlikely that the Samsung Galaxy Tablet PC would ever have seen the insides of a retail store in Australia.

Today’s High Court ruling agreed with Samsung and the judges denied Apples special leave was “denied with costs” Read the full article »»»»

In it’s latest bid to stand-over our favorite Korean semicunductor behemoth Samsung, Apple has had it’s request in a US court for an order to block sales of Samsung’s 4G smartphone and Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet pc REJECTED. The iPad manufacturer, in its lawsuit – filed in a Federal Court in San Jose, California – sought an order blocking Samsung from selling its Galaxy range of mobile devices in the US, based on claims they violate Apple patents.

The lawsuit is part of a legal battle between the companies being fought in 10 countries, including Australia, where the High Court on Friday granted Apple a further delay of court orders overturning an earlier ruling which banned the device from sale.

Samsung said via a statement that the US Federal Court ruling confirmed its long-held view that Apple’s arguments lacked merit. Read the full article »»»»
