So, the news is Apple awarded $1bn in damages from Samsung in US court.
Apple wins ... Samsung loses ... Google loses ... all other Android phone maker loses ... customer loses and ... Microsoft wins.
Why is it a win for Microsoft?
The reason is obvious - any hit on Android will open a window for Windows Phone 8!
Samsung will be forced to look at alternatives to Android ... what else is the except Windows 8 phone?
Other Android manufacturer (except Motorola) would also look around … and only find Windows 8 phone.
BTW: Here are the 11 other Reasons Why Windows Phone will overtake Android in Next 3 Years.
Both Google and Microsoft have copied Apple
Google copied the look and feel but had a completely different business model – they got sued and lost.
Microsoft is trying to copy the business model but they have a completely different look and feel – they cannot be sued.
Would Samsung have lost the case so badly had it been a US based company instead of being a South Korean company?
In the 90', in a similar case against against Microsoft ... Apple did not win!
