there, I found Nielson's Q2 2012 data.. so that's 8% in Q2, 2011 to 17% in Q2, 2012 - that's still 100+% gain. Apple's share increased from 28% in Q2, 2011 to 34% in Q2, 2012 - that is only 20+% gain. Nielsen's numbers are ased on # of US mobile subscribers.
well, based on trials held in Neherland, Germany, Australia, only one court in Germany found Samsung violating "unfair competition" law there, but they found no design infringement. So I think Samsung's chance is pretty good. Samsung will probably have to appeal given Apple's home advantage.
I agree with this.. What bothers me about most AI'ers (ie, Apple fanboys) is that they think everything in absolute terms - everything Steve Jobs or Apple does is always "right." I think a lot of anti-Jobs / anti-Apple sentiment is a reaction to such closed mind-set.
