If memory serves, Samsung is ahead 2/3 on those cases. And despite, Apple will lose out seeing as Samsung is the only game in town for Apple's discriminating taste in components these days.

Granted, Samsung won't lower their standards, that's bad business, but they certainly won't renew or shop for new business with them.

Pissing in the pool was not a good idea. Apple's only choice now is to lower their standards even more & gouge the hell out of the customers even harder if they keep this charade up.

i think if samsung are building the processors for apple they should charge apple at least 10000% more just to cover the costs of the lawsuitsw.
