The judge tried to warn samsung against letting its trial go to jury in california. This is a state with jury pools that think celebrities like oj simpson, micheal jackson, or steve jobs could do no wrong. Now samsung is facing a ban http://www.businessweek.com/news/2012-0 ... -sales-ban
Ok, so samsung like microsoft pushed the boundaries of copycat... and other android makers may get cautious. But isnt this an opportunity for archos to be brave and re enter the small screen race? Their aging gen 8 model 43 is little discounted on amazon and drove me to a galaxy player 4.2 (wifi-only phone). But that is stuck at gingerbread, the sound is iffy, and very little discount.
Archos should at least reissue the 43 with honeycomb, capacitive screen, and faster cpu like the a70b. It probably isnt worth it to apple to sue archos usa... they reportedly pay lawyers thousands per hour iirc. The sgp is nice, but i find myself switching to a70 when the portability isnt a must.
