ITC bans older Samsung devices



The International Trade Commission ruled that some older Samsung devices will receive an import ban for infringing on Apple patents.

The import band can be eliminated within 60 days by President's veto, so President Obama has possibility to veto the ban as he did with Apple's one. Among Samsung devices that infringe the patent of  scrolling behavior and headphone jacks, there are many launched in 2010/2011, such as the Galaxy S 4G, Fascinate, Captivate, Galaxy Tab, and Galaxy Tab 10.1.

ITC ban on Older iPhones, iPads was vetoed



According to WSJ, the Obama Administration has vetoed an ITC ban on the sale of older iPhones and iPads. The law would have prohibited selling of such models as AT&T iPhone 4 and iPad 2.

U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman made the decision to veto the ban on the Apple devices, citing concerns about patent holders gaining "undue leverage." He said Samsung could continue to pursue its patent rights through the courts. The action marked the first time since 1987 that a presidential administration had vetoed a product ban ordered by the U.S. International Trade Commission.

Since now the problem has risen of allowing companies to use  standard essential patents to block rival products.

Apple's position on Mobile Phone Market in 2Q 2013



According to the research firm IDC, Apple's iPhone growth has decreased. The research company estimated the worldwide mobile phone sales for the second quarter of 2013. Apple showed its second lowest result over the last four years.  The figure is only of 20% year-over-year growth as compared with 52.3% growth for the entire market.  However, Apple is still the market challenger, holing the second place after Samsung. Other competitors , such a LG, Lenovo, and ZTE did not manage to reach even the 6% mark during the quarter.

Apple posted its second-lowest year-over-year iPhone growth rate in almost four years as some buyers presumably held off on iPhone purchases in advance of an expected next-generation device launch this fall. Nonetheless, the 31.2 million iPhones Apple shipped last quarter was impressive as its flagship iPhone 5 model, which has been in the market for three quarters, was faced with additional global competition in the form of Samsung's Galaxy S4 and HTC's critically-acclaimed One models. Apple's growth is likely to accelerate globally assuming it launches a lower-cost iPhone and continues to penetrate prepaid markets in the quarters to come.

Will Barak Obama veto iPhone and iPad import ban?



Last June ITC issued an order to ban Apple from importing its older products. The ITC discovered that Apple infringed on a Samsung patent related to cellular technology in AT&T models of the 3GS and 4 as well as with the iPad 1 and 2 3G models.
The ban will go in effect on August 5th. Although there is still hope that President Obama vetoes the ban. Considering that he did not do that over the last decade, the ban is unlikely to be cancelled.
It was the Verizon Lawyer Randal Milch who asked President Obama to veto the ITC ban.

Apple has recently published a patent which describes that the rumored fingerprint sensor for the iPhone 5S will be built into the  screen. It was suggested before that the sensor would be inserted in the Home button.

iPhone 5S has been long rumored to have a fingerprint sensor, the latter being a distinguishing feature from the previous models. In the new model the fingerprint sensor will be used to  verify purchases and to unlock the device. It will certainly be a breakthrough technology. However, it essential to say that Apple is not the first company using  new technologies such as  cardless payments.
