The battle between Apple and Samsung seems unending. The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) has now once again stepped into the prior ruling. The ITC will review the judgment that ruled that Apple did not intrude on four specific patents of Samsung and issue a final verdict on the case in January 2013.
A whole bunch of manufacturers are busy trying to create a killer tablet to be able to compete with the iPad. And for many of those manufacturers Google’s Android operating system is the way to go. The hopes are high, since Android already managed to take the leading market share in the smartphone market. A few years ago Apple’s iOS reigned supreme, but was forcefully dethroned by a never-ending series of competitive Android smartphones. But is the tablet business that comparable to the smartphone industry? And shouldn’t we compare it to a much older case, that isn’t that positive for other manufacturers but perhaps fits the bill way better?
