The only country with a different carrier/mobile structure than the US that I know about is India. There are no subsidies, and people usually buy unlocked phones not at the carrier%u2019s store, but at special stores that only sell mobiles, often of multiple brands. They also sell SIMs, or you can buy a SIM card at a corner store. This SIM can be refreshed OTA or by going to any general/grocery/specialized store. Some people opt for phones with dual-SIM, so they can have...
@Jack Baker: seems like you subscribe to the 'clash of civilizations' theory. Being from the East, I feel sorry for your worldview. BTW, it's not Google but Motorola (and it has made just one Android product after Google acquisition) that has been lauded. Google not only copied the iOS, changing their 'Blackberry-copy' handset to an 'iPhone-copy' one as soon as the iPhone was introduced.

That's why it was probably easier for Samsung to copy Apple's designs, firewalls and all.
Despite high revenues, Samsung has only $12 billion in cash at hand. This 1 billion penalty will be over 8% of its cash reserves, and a quarter if tripled by the court. For Apple with 100+ billion under its belt, it would be less than 1% and 3%, respectively.
Hasn't Amazon learnt anything? Why would it hold an event before one of Apple, where a radically new iPhone and iOS is rumored to be announced? The Kindle fever will surely last about a week or so.
