Re: Make your mind up
It's the SIII.
I've got to stop taking the piss out of the yanks.
MS is going for quality, not quantity. :P
Re: reality check?
Obviously you never had a phone contract in the UK.
Re: Stupid HTC Management
HTC is irrelevant in the smartphone & tablet market.
"forecasts of 47.5 million iPhone 5s sold this quarter"
The iPad is still better value for money because more than half of its memory is available.
16GB for OS, what a f*cking joke.
Re: Apple to court
FRAND is normally used as cross licensing tool, i.e. you pay minimal amount to use my FRANDs and in return all your patents are available to me for more less minimal amount. Both of us win.
Apple being a c*nt that it is, refused to reciprocate.
LG Nexus 4 for around £239 ...
That's why Jags & Aston are now in non-British hands!!!
Sell Google, buy Nokia.
You'll be a millionaire this time next year.
Disclaimer: I've been wrong before w.r.t to this strategy.
So Apple is admitting that Samsung chips are better than theirs at this moment.
Re: What I never got
The problem is patent leeches like Apple will not 'FRAND' their patents, they abused others' FRAND patents. Simply because their patents are not standard patents.
Leeches like Apple are expecting to pay $0.0001/device for FRAND and $30/device for theirs.
Dr Yamanaka's work is freely available to anyone who wishes to use it.
Re: nope, totally lost here...
You are doing your bits for the human race & profit for MS.
What more do you want?
Re: US Tech Industry ..
Not if MS & IBM can help it. See how they manipulated the New Zealand ip laws.
Oh f*ck, even the commie are getting on with the IP scam.
Re: More importantly, how often has this happened before?
Government monitoring its citizen are done for the good of the people. :-P
Soon NZ will have secret court like the UK soon to be.
Be thankful you've big brother to look after you.
Any Google engineers should be able to demand 3x that amount since Apple are in dire straight at the moment.
The mail order bride, an in app purchase?
The legendary Apple user usability coming up trump again.
There should be a photo-timeline of cameras before this design & after this design to how innovative Mr Ive is.
I think £200 is about the right price.
I've got the G300 from Tesco, it's definitely not an Intel. Assuming you're talking about the same model.
Can't wait for IE10 to come out.
My friends & I pre-ordered some for fleabay. I know someone put in 8 pre-ordered using family members.
CEX is already willing to take them off your hand for a little over the retail price.
Sarf is gud norf is bard, init?
Alibaba buys a shit load of Acer phones then flash their own ROM onto them!
Nice chunky margin
A few more iPhone releases in the next few years should wipe out the US national debts completely.
Some small kids hacked some small insignificant country.
Cambodia did nothing but abide by the international treaties which it signed up to, i.e. serving Interpol's red notices.
MS shills are in full force.
Mazda or other Japanese car, used to come top of the car version of the survey almost every year.
However, that did not stop people from buying BMW, Mercs etc...
They got a patent on supply & demand?
Re: Smartphone/touch screen history
So before the first introduction of transistor radio, you don't think people were thinking about how to improve the size & quality of radio? So when Texas Instrument made the first transistor radio then Sony should be prevented from making & improving on transistor radio?
All this shows, e.g. w.r.t radio & HCI, is that some company will get to the next stage of evolution first.
But they all 'borrowed' from previous generations of products/technologies.
Nokia had developer guidelines & patterns for their phones before Apple had an iPod let alone an iPhone.
All companies/people play to their strengths.
Re: Lumia + stock Android?
That would admits defeat, better to keep banging the head against the wall.
Re: Pretty sure this entirely misses the point
Nokia has been in the phone business for a very long time, not some Johnny come lately like Apple.
They know how to work those carriers.
Simple fact is no punters want their gears. The carriers know it.
All the fanbois shout altogether now ... FRAGMENTATION!!!
Re: And the point is?
It's for the anti iOS & Android boys!
Samsung Galaxy Y - £60@CPW
Nokia Lumnia 710 - £99.95 + £10 top up @CPW
Re: Freetards don't get it
Yeah, those twunts think that they are entitled to use all those FRAND patents for free!
Riding on the back of others' R&D.
"Patent protection gives a very short period of economic exclusivity to exploit that method"
Remind me again, how many years patents are valid for?
Just instructed my broker to buy at $2/share.
Samsung is a big corporation, thus evil.
Apple is a big corporation, thus evil.

Re: New Sony Droidphone/Tablet
Wonder when the iPhone will start to copy the large screen size?
The jury found Samsung copied Apple does not mean that other tablet/phone makers will be affected too.
According to the foreman, http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-08-25/apple-samsung-jury-foreman-says-google-e-mail-persuasive.html, that what undone Samsung's case.
Other manufacturers whose tablets/phones look distinctively different may fight with different strategies, e.g., will try to invalidate Apple's patents etc... This case had already shown that tech companies had privately demoed technologies to Apple which shortly turned up in Apple's patents a few months later.
Huawei Ascend G300
Get the Huawei Ascend G300 as ICS upgrade is already available.
Also there are lots of ROM available here: http://www.modaco.com/forum/650-huawei-ascend-g300-g300modacocom/
Re: Huawei Ascend G300
80% -> 90% because ICS has just been released by Huawei.
