According to Reuters, today at a press conference in Tokyo Sharp president Takashi Okuda made a public statement, acknowledging that Sharp will start shipping displays for the upcoming iPhone this month. Reuters said:
“Japan's Sharp Corp. said it will start shipping screens destined for a new Apple iPhone that is widely expected to be released in October ahead of the pre-Christmas shopping season. Shipments will start in August.”
"Apple has made a clear showing that, in the absence of a preliminary injunction, it is likely to lose substantial market share in the smartphone market and to lose substantial downstream sales of future smartphone purchases and tag-along products".
The new injunction is much more important victory for Apple than the injunction against Galaxy Tab sales, as evidenced by the bond in the amount of $95 million that Apple posted in order for decision to come into effect. The bond money would be paid to Samsung should the injunction be overturned by the court later.
According to AllThingsD and Reuters, Lucy Koh, U.S. District Judge, issued a preliminary injunction prohibiting sales of Galaxy Tab tablets in the United States.
This is the latest ruling in the ongoing legal dispute between Samsung and Apple. In the court Apple had accused Samsung of blatantly copying the design of iPhone and iPad and has previously won injunctions against the sale of Galaxy Tab tablet in other countries. Koh wrote in the order:
The repair company iFixit carefully took apart the new MacBook Pro's Retina display. The company called the high-resolution screen an "engineering marvel." Moreover, the design of the screen doesn’t include front glass that allows the screen to be thinner than its predecessor.
On Monday Apple introduced its next-generation MacBook Pro with Retina Display. Just days after reviewers of the biggest mainstream publications started post their opinions on the redesigned 15-inch MacBook Pro, but some of them remain putting off by the $2,200 entry price. Here are some of the highlights:
Teardown experts from iFixit are now taking apart the refreshed 13-inch MacBook Air that was released yesterday, and while the notebook seems to receive only a minor update, there are certainly some changes that are worth mentioning.
9to5Mac managed to obtain a screenshot that demonstrates part numbers, as well as prices of forthcoming Mac models and some accessories. The full list of part numbers includes 27 items.
The first product on the list, part number MC414, is described, as "K31 Best" would represent a new AirPort Express. The next group of part numbers includes a pair of "D2" machines with prices above AU$2000 and AU$3000 respectively, and these parts could represent new 15-inch MacBook Pro models.
