Apple fans should now rejoice. A message to all the apple haters who visit this site, this is sweet taste of victory and justice has finally been served.

Apple failed on its main goal to prevent sales of samsung devices on US, they still have a lot to catch up on samsung's flagship products! Now lets hope apple will make better performing devices than the galaxy! iphone and ipad are bullcrap w/o jailbreak

Last time I checked, they were seeking for about 2 billion in damages. But if the idea of the new galaxy phone being better than the current iPhone makes you feel better, keep clinging to that... Until next month that's is.

Lol apple is better

Well, as far as I can tell Apple was seeking about 2.5 billion. A sales ban would be great but I don't recall that being on the table. Now for all you Samsung Android fans you can feel great knowing the Galaxy S3 is the best phone... for about 1 more month LOL. I love how android lovers always say iphones are crap without a jailbreak when android phones are crap with or without rooting... LOL

. The Galaxy looks nice in white, and it feels lighter cpaemrod to the Ipad 2. There are not many leather cases available, the ipad had a huge selection. As part of the Galaxy purchase, make sure you also purchase some charging cables, they are low cost, and I now keep one in the car and one at home. Please excuse the frequent ipad comparisons, I did this because I figured some people would want to know. In terms of build, it feels strong. Some people may prefer Aluminium ipad, but I prefer a modern plastic than aluminium, and the Galaxy plastic does not feel' cheap, in fact the overall impression is great. I believe the Galaxy chassis internally is metal, although I'm not sure. Anyway, in several months of owning it, I'm very satisfied with the build quality. The Galaxy is truly PC-independant, and does not rely on iTunes to be running. If you want a software update, it can download and install itself with no PC connection at all, and no need to perform any backups. It was quick and painless to perform the upgrade. With Apple, I had to have 400MByte downloads to the PC (it may have changed now) to perform updates. If you want to connect to a PC for file transfers, then it is possible to transfer files (PDFs, music) from the PC simply by normal drag-and-drop, just like a USB memory stick. This is not possible with the iPad, which needs iTunes. If you are using a Mac, then I believe some software is needed to perform the drag and drop, but with Windows, I needed to install absolutely nothing on my PC. This is great, because I have many PDF books and many MP3s and I can easily transfer them. The built-in reader software allows me to categorise the books, and annotate and highlight pages, and instantly be able to see all pages with annotations/highlights. I have very large PDF files, and it handles them no problem. With the recent software upgrade, it is possible to do nice things like transfer my MP3s from the Galaxy to others, e.g. via e-mail, directly from the music player software. Apple would never allow you to do that, since they tie you into the iTunes store for music purchases. I can download MP3s directly from the web for free, no need for Apple's music store any longer. Also, as part of the Samsung software update, there is an Amazon MP3 application, and using this, it is possible to purchase MP3s from Amazon (I managed this in the UK). I too saw the newton's rings' problem (I purchased it as soon as it was released), but if you raise a case with Samsung via the Samsung website, they will offer to replace or repair it. I did raise a case, but I have not sent it in so far, because the problem does not bother me much (it is cosmetic) and to be honest I would miss the usage of the tablet meanwhile. I think it may bother some people, even though it is cosmetic. By the way, as soon as the tablet it turned on, then the rings are not visible(they are visible when the tablet is off). I suspect if you purchase now, you will probably not experience the problem anyway. The built-in software has some nice features. The map software is excellent, it has voice search (which seems very reliable so far), and I can search for (say) restaurants near me, built-in GPS, and I think the map and direction experience is way better than the ipad, and it is for free! The e-mail client is nice, I use it with my hotmail, but gmail worked fine for me too. It can work with corporate Microsoft accounts too, but I have not done this so far. Best of all, if I one day want to write my own apps, then I can using Java, instead of proprietary Apple Objective-C (which needs a Mac to do the programming). In conclusion, I'm very happy with the Galaxy.
