That opens the door for a lot more law suits.  I wonder what can be used to replace Android but is not patented by Apple?Smiley Surprised

The issue with Samsung's patent infringement isn't Android. It was Samsung's design of the phone's hardware, as well as some overlay software they put on top of Android that made the user interface look very similar to the iPhone.

Samsung is going to appeal the ruling anyway, so don't look for this to actually be settled any time soon.

I know it isn't.  But that lawsuit is the tip of the ice berg.  IMO

It will be interesting to see what and how things will be after all of this is done.

What gets me is the ridiculous state of the patent laws, as Apple supposedly has a patent on "rounded corners" on devices.

I've never understood how what they're trying to pull isn't considered anti-trust.  If this were MS, holy crap!
