While there’s no specific word about the HTC One X and EVO 4G LTE that have been delayed by U.S. Customs last week following an ITC exclusion order, the Taiwanese handset maker claims progress is being made to get the devices moving onto American shores again.
We’ve been reporting on International Trade Commission decisions for what seems like forever, but it appears that one of them is finally making an impact -- two of HTC’s latest handsets are being “indefinitely delayed” by U.S. customs as the result of an ITC ban Apple won against the handset manufacturer late last year.
The biggest news this week wasn't really all about Apple, but it was their week to shine in their financials, Google's chance to show off their new cloud storage, and Sprint's chance to show us how losing a LOT of blood wasn't really a horrible thing.
The next Samsung Galaxy S smartphone is set to be unveiled next week, and the Korean manufacturer is aiming to get the masses excited about it a few days early with word that the handset will come packing a quad-core processor.
Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: A manufacturer specializing in Android handsets unleashes a dizzying torrent of models to confuse customers, then blames a steep drop in net profit on one device sold by a rival.
If you’re a frequent visitor to the Mac|Life website, you know that we love a good patent-based slap-fight. From the looks of things, so does Apple: to date, the company’s battle to stop Android handset manufacturers from infringing on their patents has cost the Cupertino-based tech manufacturer over $100 million. That’s small change to them, but an awful lot of money to the rest of us. What’re all the lawsuits about? We’ve put together a list of four patent lawsuits that focus on technology most iOS users take for granted every day.
Judging from first quarter results this year, Google’s Android is not a guaranteed sure thing. On one hand, South Korean electronics giant Samsung just announced a healthy profit for Q1 2012, but rival HTC is feeling the blues with a 70 drop in profit from last year.
March is winding to a close and our attention turns to April and beyond, wondering what exactly Apple might have up their sleeves for us in the coming months. Meanwhile, competitors like Nokia and HTC are ramping up their Windows Phone initiative with two highly anticipated devices arriving on the same day (!?!) as the kingpins of the cell phone market duke it out over a proposed “micro-SIM” standard that promises to shrink our handsets even further. If you missed today’s news, sit back and soak in what’s happening on this Monday, March 26, 2012.
Now that Apple’s media event for the third-generation iPad is official for March 7, all eyes will be on the company to unveil a higher resolution display. But one thing that all tablets and smartphones continually have to fight is Mother Nature -- and specifically, that giant yellow ball we know as the Sun.
In this latest edition of Law & Apple, we learn that sometimes a lawsuit is really just a fancy marketing promotion. Also, the age-old question of "After I die, what happens to my likeness?" is threatened, bluffed, and, depending on where you live, clearly unanswered.
