I'm just happy to see them competing in the marketplace rather than in the courtroom. This can only be good news for consumers.
@AZskibum, I totally agree with you that it will benefit the consumers in the end. Competition will force Apple to reduce the prices of its products because Samsung is offering very good features at minimal cost.
Resolution may not be any problem for the size of the screen. Better color and reduction of glare might actually be a more attractive features. In addition, to extend battery life will likely get a boost of attraction. What would Apple do to further reduce the power consumption?
I agree. Those who are choosing iPad over Samsung aren't going to change their mind because Samsung's tablet has a slightly larger screen and slightly higher resolution. A significantly lower price for Android alternatives is probably one of the larger factors in Apple's descreasing market share in the tablet market, but these tablets are priced similarly to Apple's.
