Apple Loses Court Fight Against Samsung Smartphone

Apple loses court fight with Samsung over phone tech.


The iPhone could not defeat the Galaxy Nexus in court, so now Apple will have to try winning in the market.

Apple on Thursday saw its bid to have a federal court ban sales of the Galaxy Nexus fail, according to Reuters. The court fight is "seen as a proxy war" between Apple and nearby Google, whose Android operating system the Samsung phone uses.

Apple last year won $1.05 billion from Samsung for copying the operating system. Nonetheless, Samsung still has a bigger share of the global smartphone market.

Steve Jobs, Apple's late co-founder, called the Android phone a "stolen product," according to reports.
