Apple and Samsung Insights

An influential Asian manufacturer, Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, uses Google Inc's Android software to create smart phones and tablets that closely resemble the iPhone and the iPad. Samsung starts gaining market share, hurting Apple Inc's margins and stock price and intimidating its reign as the king of cool in consumer electronics.
A series of recent court rulings suggests that the smart phone patent wars are now grinding toward a stalemate, with Apple incapable to show that its sales have been critically damaged when rivals, notably Samsung, imitated its products. Samsung, meanwhile, has benefited hugely from the market insight it gained from the Apple relationship, and from producing smart phones and tablets that closely look like Apple's.
