Why Apple's law suit against Samsung is risky

Written by Nick Farell


New iPad 3 was supposed to ship with its latest chip
Apple's law suit against Samsung might be one of the dafter moves that Jobs' Mob has tried.

Not only is Samsung a loving partner for the fruity cargo-cult, it is also rumoured to be spending a fortune developing a new processor for the iPad 3. Jobs mob is taking Samsung to the cleaners as part of its drive to use its expensive team of lawyers to shut down Android, before the operating system reduces its marketshare. But the obsession with Android might have a bad effect on the R&D behind the iPad 3.

Word on the street is that Samsung and Apple had been developing a fast 2Ghz dual-core processor for mobile devices, which could be used in Apple's as-yet-unannounced iPad 3. Samsung has announced that it was planning to release a 2Ghz dual-core CPU-equipped smartphone by next year. It was supposed to have have the data processing capacities of a regular PC, at least according to samsung.

Apple was a likely customer as its A4 and A5 chips used in the iPhone 4 and iPad 2 are made by Samsung. A 2Ghz dual-core processor would make the iPad more like a computer and less like chocolate teapot. With Apple gunning for Android hardware makers, Samsung might just tell Jobs' Mob to shove it and take its natty technology elsewhere. Although Jobs' Mob could eventually find other suppliers, there would be some trouble in the medium term. Samsung would have no problems shoving its gear into Android based tablets.

The effect would be that Jobs Mob would be completing against the better hardware earmarked for his own toys. It is unlikely his legal team will do any damage to Android, so this has to be the shortest sighted decision in the history of computing.
