Samsung and Apple are discussing the features of your smartphone
Monday began the second week of a high-level view of the most valuable technology company in the world and rival Samsung, which has surpassed Apple in market share and aims to increase its presence in the United States. Apple called Peter Bressler, a professor of higher education with experience in electronic design, with 70 patents to his name, who analyzed the Samsung devices with the iPhone and the iPhone .
But the audience quickly became a complicated list of design differences between the iPhone and Samsung devices, as the attorney for the South Korean firm, patient and meticulous Charles Verhoeven, used images and real devices to demonstrate their position. The number of examples included different curvatures of the corners, sides, protruding slightly above the screen , different positions of the headphones, even edges that do not have a uniform thickness.
“I being asked to compare peanut butter to the turkey,” he joked Bressler, who teaches at the University of Pennsylvania and founded the design firm Bressler Group something annoying after about an hour of interrogation. “The general impression that the ordinary observer would have on the design is that they are basically the same,” said Bressler, who has worked with Motorola and other clients in the technology sector. Bressler said read several statements from Apple employees and found that the company used machines of special processes, for example.
We also examined several devices and Apple’s patent before concluding that Samsung had borrowed several elements of American design. U.S. company accused Samsung of copying the design and some features of the iPad and iPhone and search thousands of million in compensatory damages, and prohibition of sales. On the other hand, the South Korean company says Apple violated some of its most important patents in wireless technology.
