Samsung, Apple Face Ban in South Korea

Apple and Samsung have been ordered to stop selling some smartphones and tablet computers in South Korea and pay damages after a court ruled they each infringed the other’s patents.

Samsung, the world’s largest mobile phone maker, infringed one Apple patent related to a “bounce-back” touchscreen feature, it didn’t copy the design of the iPhone, the court said.

The companies have sued each other on four continents since April, accusing each other of copying products, design and technology as they battle for dominance of a smartphone market estimated to be worth $219 billion.
The sales bans imposed by the court in Seoul don’t cover Apple’s iPhone 4S, its newest iPad, or Samsung’s latest products including the Galaxy SIII phone, all of which were released after the lawsuits were filed.

Hottest Consumer Device Comparison : iPhone Vs iPad Sales Charts

The iPad launched in January 2010, and has sold more units every quarter.

This chart shows unit sales of each products in the first six quarters after launch. The iPhone launched in June 2007, but didn't really take off until the iPhone 3G launched in July 2008, five quarters later.

Apple  sales charts  shows what analysts like to call a "blow-out quarter till q4, 2010 , selling more than 16 million iPhones during the three months that included the holiday season.
In fact, Apple has sold 30 million iPhones in the last two quarters. In the three years before that, the company had sold a total of 60 million units.

The iPhone may have kicked off the smartphone revolution, but so far the iPad is selling much faster.
That's partly because the iPad benefits from all the work Apple did for the iPhone, including a huge base of developers and customers who already understand how the product works. The iPhone is also constrained by carrier contracts -- it's hard to convince customers to buy a new phone before their current contract is up -- and had stronger competition at launch (like the BlackBerry).

In June  its iPad and iPhone shipments for the June quarter.
And the numbers are huge:
It shipped 9.25 million iPads and 20.34 million iPhones.
Mac shipments were a miss at 3.95 million, vs. a 4.2 million Street consensus.
iPods were another miss with 7.54 million shipments vs. a 8.4 million Street consensus.
