Samsung Electronics Co has filed patent lawsuits against Apple over the U.S. firm’s iPhone and iPad in a tit-for-tat case after Apple claimed Samsung’s smartphones and tablets “slavishly” copied its products
The US International Trade Commission (ITC) has ruled in an intial report that Nokia and HTC did not violate Apple’s technology patents on the iPhone.
Google Inc’s initial sales of its Nexus One smartphone have significantly lagged the pace of Apple Inc’s iPhone and Motorola Inc’s Droid sales coming out of the starting gate, an analytics firm said on Tuesday.
According to a report by Flurry, Google sold roughly 135,000 of its new Nexus One phones in its first 74 days on the market. By contrast, Apple sold 1 million of the original iPhones in the first 74 days, while Motorola sold 1.05 million Droid phones — which are based on Google’s Android software — during the same timeframe.
Nokia and Intel said they are teaming up in top-end smartphone software and Microsoft finally unveiled its new phone operating system, Windows Phone 7, as they race to keep up with Apple and Google.
