'Sense of crisis' at Samsung could affect patent disputes with Apple - Page 2

post #41 of 47

I would imagine that Samsung is feeling like they are surrounded with Google controlling the OS they use and Apple suing them and winning on many fronts.  I'd expect them to do what has been reported before and move to make more of their phones on their own OS.  I also expect them to finally seek cross licensing deals with Apple.  We'll see in the coming weeks though.

I see that I'm not the only one with this idea lol.gif

I've noticed that too. The larger smart phones are mostly used as (too small) a tablet.

Also they are usually held with two hands, particularly by women.

Hey, I like the large Samsung format. I carry coffee on it like a tray to my wife on Sunday mornings.

Since getting my iPad mini, I carry my iPhone a little less. Using a BT headset and the free Talkatone app, I can make decent calls for most of the calls I take on the move (I am probably texting as much or more than phone calls). Quality is okay, and if I didn't have a company phone, I would consider dumping my voice plan and just moving to the Talkatone subscription plan with better call quality.

 

I also agree with the comment about the iPad mini fitting in a purse. I see that a lot of the customers for iPad minis are female, since they carry purses the majority of the time and the minis fit well in even the smallest purses. Unfortunately, (and I know this is a stereotype) it seems that they are also less likely to be tech-crazy, so they still use their phones rather than BT headsets.
