UK court forces Apple to pay Samsung’s legal fees after condemning its sarcastic ‘apology’

Apple Samsung Patent Dispute

It looks like saying “sorry” just isn’t good enough this time. A court in the United Kingdom is now forcing Apple (AAPL) to pay rival Samsung’s (005930) legal fees after it posted a sarcastic “apology” to the company on its website. As Groklaw reports, the United Kingdom Court of Appeal in London has now said that “Apple will have to pay for everything the lawyers cost Samsung, not just fees but parking, phone calls, and from day one.” Previously the court had ordered Apple to rewrite its court-mandated apology to Samsung that mocked its rival for producing tablets that were “not as cool” as the iPad. Specifically, Apple directly quoted a judge’s official ruling that Samsung could not have possibly copied its tablet designs from Apple because they are “not as cool” and lack “the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design.”

UK SIM-free pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 emerged some time ago, but if you’re still wondering much it’ll set you back on-contract, then wonder no more. The answer, it seems, is a lot. Independent UK retailer Phones4U has published its subsidized prices for the Note 2, which it’s offering on Vodafone, O2, T-Mobile and Orange. But if you want to pick up a Galaxy Note 2 for free, you’ll be paying at least £41 per month to one of the UK’s leading networks.

ASUS offering refunds and extended warranties to Transformer Prime customers in the UK

The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime was the first device to feature NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor, making it one of the most anticipated Android tablets of 2011. Once the slate was finally released, however, early buyers were plagued with Wi-Fi issues, faulty GPS and random software bugs. To make matters worse, ASUS announced a higher-resolution Prime at last week’s Consumer Electronics Show. The company is now looking to ease customer frustration by offering refunds to any users dissatisfied with their purchases. Unfortunately, the offer is only available to residents of the United Kingdom. “Any customers who have purchased a Transformer Prime TF201 and are dissatisfied with the performance of the GPS module are advised to return the unit to their point of purchase for a full refund as per standard consumer rights that apply in the UK,” said an ASUS representative on the company’s website. “Any customers who wish to keep their unit will be offered an extension to the standard ASUS warranty from 12 to 18 months (for any retailers who offer an additional 12 months’ warranty with their purchase, the total warranty period will remain at 2 years).”

Both companies though have quite different expected release dates.
