Apple is now going after Motorola and its Xoom tablet in its current patent dispute with Samsung and the Galaxy Tab. Foss Patents dug around in the dispute and found this information:
That passage says that Apple filed with the same court (district court of Düsseldorf) a complaint over the design of the Motorola Xoom, but it doesn't state whether that complaint included a request for a preliminary injunction. While it's not stated explicitly, I suppose that the complaint against Motorola also asks the court for an EU-wide injunction — but perhaps just for a permanent injunction without a previous preliminary one.
Sprint has teamed up with Samsung Mobile, yet again, to release a new Android equipped device on their 4G now network. It will be the 25th device to be launched on Sprint's 4G network. In addition to that, the Conquer will be the first Sprint Android 4G device to be prices at under $100.
When the Kyocera Echo first came out I had a feeling it would be destined to fail as a device to achieve wide spread adoption. The dual-display was a great idea, but I just did not agree with the physical implementation was done well.
Microsoft has requested $15 per Android device released by Samsung. This has been requested by Microsoft as a royalty payment for using Microsoft patents on the devices. However, Microsoft only charged HTC $5 per device while charging Samsung $15. Samsung would most likely seek a lower payment around $10 a device than the staggering $15 a device. Samsung is said to have sold 3 million devices since April of this year, that comes to about $45 million extra dollars in Microsoft's bill fold.
