With Galaxy S II Samsung is one generation ahead of Apple

Reports indicate that Samsung has sold 3 mil. Galaxy S II smartphones worldwide in just 55 days. This achievement is a major threat for Apple’s popular smartphone market share. Not necessarily because of the record selling number, but because of its hardware configuration which is already ahead of iPhone with one generation at least.

Technically this is what Galaxy S II offers:

4.27-inch Super AMOLED display with 800 x 480 resolution; dual-core Samsung processor; 8-megapixel rear-facing and 2-megapixel front-facing cameras; Android 2.3 (Gingerbread); 1080p video recording; Bluetooth 3.0+HS; and HSPA+ network support, etc.

With its latest product Samsung is following a three-mobile operating strategy that will lead to a broader range of clients compared to the exclusively single operating system strategy present in iPhone. There is no wonder that with a wider support from the American carriers, this smartphone can definitely become the hit of this year. But with so many bloggers and journalists truly dedicated to the iPhone, a stronger PR session is required from Samsung to win the American market.

Apple sues Samsung for “copying” iPhone and iPad

Apple once again suing other companies for intellectual property infringement. This time, it has reportedly sued Samsung Electronics for “copying the look and feel” of its iPhone and iPad after Samsung releases the Samsung Galaxy S II, which in some way similarly-designed to the iPhone.

“Rather than innovate and develop its own technology and a unique Samsung style for its smart phone products and computer tablets, Samsung chose to copy Apple’s technology, user interface, and innovative style in these infringing products,” the complaint states.

“It’s no coincidence that Samsung’s latest products look a lot like the iPhone and iPad, from the shape of the hardware to the user interface and even the packaging,” an Apple representative told Mobilized. “This kind of blatant copying is wrong, and we need to protect Apple’s intellectual property when companies steal our ideas.”

Well,  probably this will end with settlements and agreements. After all, Apple buys its iPhone supplies from Samsung.
