    Um..  don't think that's what the exhaustion doctrine says.  According to Wiki you just quoted:   The exhaustion doctrine, also referred to as the first sale doctrine, is a common law patent doctrine that limits the extent to which patent holders can control a patented product after an authorized sale. Under the doctrine, once an unrestricted, authorized sale of a patented article occurs, the patent holders exclusive rights to control the use and sale of that article...
  u talking about S3 or iPhone 5? 
    Doesn't seem to make any sense.  A court in Munich recently found that Motorola smartphone infringed on Apple's bouncing-back patent. Now, why isn't Motorola's risk taking paying off?
Rolex?  Made-in-China Rolex means only one thing.  ROLF
   I don't think the patent exhaustion applies here.  My understanding is that Qualcomm's customers are not covered under the current law. Qualcomm and Samsung likewise signed an agreement not to go after their customers years back, but Samsung ended that agreement when Apple filed lawsuits against Samsung last year.   Well, if Samsung's patents are valid, why not?  Apple successfully banned Samsung's products in Germany.  I guess Samsung could *copy* Apple's legal...
  If I recall correctly, AT&T ALWAYS had issues with Apple pre-orders and everyone thought it was all b/c of the demand. It looks like it's their crappy infrastructure than anything else.

  My understanding is that most of Apple's profit (by Apple's own foreign subsidiaries) are actually re-invested in US assets.  While the corporate taxes in the US by US companies are high, the capital investments from foreign investors, ie, Apple's subsidiaries, are exempt from capital gains taxes.
  There is no one company or single individual who owns all LTE patents.  The point here is that Samsung is one of the major LTE patent holders (10+% of all LTE patents, in fact) - you can't swing a dead cat without hitting Samsung's LTE patents.  The same is probably now true for Apple - which I believe is among the top 10 LTE patent holders.
  Well, at least Samsung researched and developed LTE patents in house, unlike Apple who bough most.
