 Sure, the S4 was released and its sales peaked in June quarter, but there has been virtually no change since May.  Apple frequently records significant QoQ sales drop after new iPhone is released.  For instance, after the 4S release in 1Q 2012, the iPhone sales plummeted by -5.34% and -25.77 the next two quarters; again by -21.75% (2Q 2013)  and -16.04% (3Q 2013)  after the 5 release in 4Q 2012,  Samsung reportedly sold some 1 million Galaxy lines in Japan -- that's a...
 There doesn't seem to be any evidence to support your hypothesis.  If Counterpoint Research has it right, it's Japanese smartphone makers who are hurt the most by Apple's new iPhones.  Samsung's overall sales/marketshare in Japan was never that significant to warrant a "crisis awareness meeting."    
 Sure, Apple is a total stranger to benchmark cheating : http://www.theregister.co.uk/2003/06/24/apple_accused_of_cheating_over/ written by the same author.
does IDC keep track of total smartphones not subsidized by mobile operators?
 Are you saying that Microsoft is paying Apple $30/phone & $40/tablet to Apple?
 Sure, do you have any data to back up your claims?  Considering Samsung doesn't publish their sales/shipment unit, like Dilger, you seem to be pulling numbers out of your a**.
 Do you consider Apple's acquisition of Intrinsity & PA-semi as a business strategy or tactic?
 I don't think this suit has much to do with Android.   If you look at the patents listed, they are all  "search" and "ads" related patents.  I still don't understand how Samsung made to the headline. 
Rockstar is a patent holding non-practicing entity (NPE) -- and the suit was filed in the Eastern District of Texas, the patent troll capital of the world.  Nice!  I'm pretty sure there will be similar lawsuits coming to the Dusseldorf / Mannheim courts of Germany -- the paten troll capital of EU!  LOL!!   Well, now we could officially call Apple a proud parent of a "patent troll."   Now, I don't see Samsung named in the complaint, anybody know what's going on here?...
revolving door much? what's new?  I guess this explains Obama's last ITC veto.   Horay! American corporatism!   Vice President, Worldwide Government Affairs Apple Inc Assistant U.S. Trade Representative Executive Office of the President of the United States 1991 – 2005 (14 years) Assistant U.S. Trade Representative Office of the U.S. Trade Representative 1991 – 2005 (14 years) Assistant US Trade Representative USTR 1991 – 2005 (14 years) Attorney...
