The UK Court ordered Apple to pay legal fees in favor of Samsung.



On Friday, the British Court ruled that Apple must pay legal fees to Samsung, after it was found that the company had not complied with the requirements of a notice on its Web site, which said that the South Korean company did not use the design of the iPad. Groklaw reported that the England and Wales Court of Appeal found the originals, posted on the Apple's website that contain inaccuracies and "false innuendo," requiring the payment of legal expenses on the basis of Samsung "indemnity "above the standard threshold.

In July, British judge, Colin Birss decided that Apple should put a notice on the home page of its website, with the announcement that Samsung did not copy the design of the iPad. The post was published, however, it was in the form of a reference to the statement in which Apple has made some changes.

The Court acknowledged that the added content has been false and distorted the essence of the decisions, especially referring to a quote by judge Birss, who heard the distinctive character of Apple products, saying it was torn out of context and "foster[ed] the false notion that the case was about the iPad."

Also in dispute was a reference to judgments through consideration of patents from around the world, including a lawsuit Apple vs. Samsung where Apple recieved $ 1.2 billion. The Court said that such inserts were "calculated to produce huge confusion" and that the notice contains "further false innuendo that the UK court's decision is at odds with decisions in other countries whereas that is simply not true."

In November, Apple was ordered to correct the notification under regulation. The decision of the Court was intended to illustrate the disapproval of Apple's behavior , especially in relation to the original order.

In conclusion, the author of the verdict, Sir Robin Jacob, offered the following comment: "I hope that the lack of honesty, resulted in this incident, a completely unique track record of Apple."

Apple Will Discontinue iPhone 3GS And Introduce 8GB iPhone 4S



iphone_3gs_oblique

According to a report from The Telegraph, Apple will likely discontinue the iPhone 3GS once it introduces the new iPhone at next week’s media event. The report also said that Apple will likely introduce an 8 GB iPhone 4S with a middle price point as it did with the iPhone 4 last year.

“The new update will mean that the 8GB version of the iPhone 4 will be the entry-level iPhone, probably given away free on £20 per month contracts, as the 3GS is currently”.

The Telegraph also notes that iPhone 5 will come in three different capacities, probably the same 64 GB/32 GB/16 GB line seen with the iPhone 4S.

Moving the iPhone 4 into the position that is currently occupied by the iPhone 3GS would allow more carriers to offer a free iPhone, because the iPhone 4 is sold in both CDMA and GSM versions while the iPhone 3GS is only offered in GSM version.

The iPhone 3GS would probably be most missed by customers who want to buy contract-free smartphones. Currently Apple sells contract-free, unlocked iPhone 3GS for $375 in the U.S. and at higher prices in other countries such as $455 in China. If the company elected to continue selling the device along with its three other iPhone models, it would have to cut the price even further.
