It's too late for it to be delayed by apple though. The phone will be released before apple can do anything about it. The question is wether they will actually succeed in sueing them later on. I doubt it.
no it isn't to late, amazing how fast somethings happen when you have enough money to throw at it.

Because Apple has NEVER used someone else's good idea. Guess who invented the mouse? Xerox.
There's nothing wrong with incorporating good ideas that came from someone else or even better, improving on them. Patents are there to protect good ideas that are unique enough to be patentable. And maybe some of the ideas that Apple had deserved patents and they're well within their rights to defend them. Having said that, they're DEFINITELY using patents as legal levers to harm their competitors; does anyone think that droid phones are being bought over iphones because they can turn a phone number on a website or in an email into a clickable link?
Guess what, Skype had a browser addon that did just that before the iphone came out. OMG OMG OMG Skype is suing the world to block the sale of anything with a fruit logo on it!!!

I pre-ordered the SIII on the 6th and it has yet to ship. I have to admit that I am a bit annoyed with AT&T, because every time I call to find out when it will ship I get a different answer. My confirmation e-mail and one rep said on the 18th cause I had ordered before 3pm on the 6th, but other answers I have been told are "We don't know", "Before the 22nd", and "Could ship out today". If they cannot get it straight in time I will just cancel and buy it in a store on the 21st. What is the point in pre-ordering if you cannot have the phone at least by the day it is released in stores? This doesn't add up.
