The bad news for Android, this infringing software is at the core of the Android OS and there is no easy workaround like many of the other patent suits that have gone in Apple's favor. Could this mean the end of the line for the top selling smartphone OS?

 

Patent at the core of Android interpreted in Apple's favor

Giving Google time to rewrite/reimplement anything necessary unless this is one of those brain-dead "Rectangular screen for phone purposes" type of super generic patents then there might be a chance of it being thrown out.

 

IANAL

This has the potential to get bloody. Google would almost have to jump in. I'm sure Google, Samsung, Motorola, LG etc are all calculating the risk/reward. After this victory, Apple is going to have that much more tenacity going after Android. They tasted blood, now they will be going for the kill.

It could happen that Android has to pay Apple in some certain way.

That`s what Apple is more than likely wanting anyway.

 

Then there is Tizen.

An open source platform that Samsung and Intel is working on.

It could be everything that Android wasn`t and then some.

 

Regardless we will have open source.

That`s true

Jobs did hate Android !

 

He couldn`t find anything innovative ...

So let`s sue!

 

Like putting two boxers in the ring.

If one opponent wins- the loser sues the winner!

 

GOD I HATE APPLE ! bunch of sore losers!

You can tell it's a Samsung product. Sure gives me TouchWiz flashbacks. Thanks for the post. I hadn't heard of Tizen at all. And to think I'm supposed to be a tech journalist...even if just a pretend one.

I'd say Sony would be the company able to build a successful OS the quickest. Give it the ability to connect with PS3, some games from their library and work on using it to interconnect all the Sony home entertainment equipment like google has been trying to do for years with Android @ home and you have the #5 operating system...

More than likely...

Sony has it`s hands in everything (even under assuming names)

Even though they did nothing to help the Android OS.

 

Samsung is the one that stepped up and polished Android !

 

If I were to choose an OS from Sony or Samsung as it is to date.

I`d go with Samsung.

 

That could change. You never know with technology.

I'd hate to lose sony as an android player. They make some great hardware. Great cameras and still add a dedicated camera button.

 

Sonys problem right now is they are slow in development.

 

The Sony ion for example is a great phone. But specs wise it will almost be outdated before it is released.

    • I see it as more of an economic calculation.  Basically go after the areas where they have the best odds of retaining or attracting customers versus their MVNO arrangements. The quicker they can switch back and forth between 5g and MVNOs the finer grained this decision zone can be.  Field results will beat theory.  In Sprint days this was up to 15 minutes in theory. In practice AT&T could be quite sticky.  I remember driving by 3 Sprint sites while still stuck on AT&T roaming. Dish will need to do better to thrive. Both their MVNO arrangements reportedly now cost them about $1.50 per GB. With volume that may fall to $1.
    • Man I wish I could get on their beta right now.  Looks like I'll have to wait until Dec or so.  The report is not surprising really.  Largely only have employees roaming around running tests and what not.  I am sure lots of testing is needed to iron out bugs, fix things.  Though a lot of it might be denser network.  Only so much you can do and money is spread out very thin when you have such a large target to hit. 
    • Found some AT&T c band live in Cincinnati today. Not too bad considering I was driving past on the interstate at speed.  
    • Hey Mike, a couple other things you might be able to post for S22Ultra owners, In particular, these deal with the *#0011# menu. The following are true for even the June update:   1. Does not show the second n41 carrier (when it is connected) on LTE+NSA. It shows "NR_NumCC:2" but no additional Carrier. It simply states "CA-Not Config 0 0"This works fine on the S21.  2. There is a line that states "Code Review Required" 3. There is a line that states "Unknown 0"    
    • The see Dish as the Beta network for a while. Basically once they have secured their licenses and have inexpensive phones that utilize all their bands I hope to see them reduce the edge space of their network or improve the transfer performance so customers have more of an invisible handoff experience. This will likely be late 2023.
