Not really.. I see Apple going the way of Motorola or Nokia. Apple owns none of the underlying technology behind iPhones or iPad. Samsung not only makes major components for Apple (oh and widely licensed essential IPs), but it also has already more or less commodified smartphones. To make matters worse for Apple, Samsung is growing at 300+% year (and will for another couple of years). That being said, there's plenty of room for both Apple to Samsung to grow in mobile...
Most Samsung's phones / tablets don't have Wacom digitizers (bar Samsung's Galaxy Notes). If I recall correctly, only the US edition of Galaxy lines uses Qualcomm chips; all others use in-house Exynos chips. Now, considering Samsung sold 100+M smartphones last year, it's fair to say Samsung has many phones (/tablet - probably insignificant given that Samsung's share of tablet sales is neglible) whose *major components* are made in-house.
LOL!! If there's backlight bleeding on your ipad3, you know it's from LG!!
Apple should just stop pretending it's technically innovative and just outsource the entire manufacturing to Samsung / sign non-compete / throw billions at Samsung like Dell did in the 90's.
Seems like you are still in denial. Why else would Apple move away from its main iPad 2 display supplier, LG, in favor of Samsung, Apple's biggest competitor in both mobile and tablet market?Because LG and Sharp are in no rush to fix their production problem?
Are you saying that LG & Sharp aren't trying to get Apple's business (or likewise for Apple to diversify away from Samsung)?Or are you in denial that there is no other tech / manufacturer big or reliable enough to meet Apple's needs?
No, Apple is suing Samsung Electronics, not Samsung Electronics's Mobile division or display vision.
Really? And you do?
I believe it's Sharp, but Sharp & LG reportedly had difficulty manufacturing the display panels in volume.http://www.reghardware.com/2012/03/1...aperture_tech/Well, at least we now know where Apple would be without Samsung's flash, cpu, or display.
I agree that numbers don't mean anything, but how would you know that Samsung's patents are not worthy? but Apple's patents are? Company A has 100,000 patents, many of which are widely licensed (including those considered essential FRAND) and employed to promote / advance technology. Company B has 1,000 patents, many of which are based on obvious design / prior art. The patents are mainly used to intimidate competitors and maintain its market dominance.
