Then Apple deserves to fleece its customers. No other flagship device has offered a HD display in years. Yet Apple charges a flagship price for a 1334x750 display. This is a joke. There is no excuse for such a low resolution display, especially when other OEMs have had higher resolution displays on devices with 4.7" - 5.2". I think Apple has kept this low resolution so they can brag to everyone with benchmarks. See … [Read more...] about Comments for : How big do you think will the iPhone 7’s display be?

The e-mail is nice, but in and of itself proves at best, an absence of intent to copy. If the patents are ruled valid, copying or not, Sammy is going have to prove Apple is not entitled to an award in the 10 figure range. If the patents are ruled invalid, whether Sammy copied or not does not matter. posted on 14 Aug 2012, 03:38 5 4.

The frenzy over the forthcoming iPhone intensified Tuesday with a Wall Street Journal report that Apple has ordered up to 80 million units of the device.Meanwhile, Samsung unveiled an ad poking fun at the "iPhone 6" and Xiaomi introduced its answer to the iPhone, the Mi4. Xiaomi, known for high specs at relatively low prices, is cutting inroads into markets in the developing world where Apple is struggling.Piling insult on injury, a China-based company by the name of "Wico" last week released videos of the first iPhone 6 clone, creating cognitive dissonance in thinking observers -- how do you clone a product that has yet to be released?

Are you sitting comfortably? Good. This could take a while.
