There is a prediction from some people, that the main target of the Apple lawsuit war were some of the vendors as the creator of Android operating system. Now with a victory over Samsung, Apple will sue the biggest Android OS player, Google?
Steve Jobs has been pointed to Android which tell Android is a stolen product, and Apple wants to launch ‘thermonuclear war’ against it. But so far, Apple has not sued Google directly but doing that effort to Android vendors such as Samsung, HTC or Motorola.
“All of this is a Apple tactics. There’s no reason for Apple feel affraid to sued Google directly. Yet the tactics better suited to fight another device vendors,” said Florian Mueller, a patent expert who had been observing the battle between handset vendors claim.
Apple victory over Samsung patent does not mean that the war will be finished. Moreover, Samsung plans to appeal. And in many parts of the world, there are still several lawsuits between them are yet to be decided.
Mueller also thinks Apple will still do his tactics and instead sued Google Android vendor directly. At least in the near future.
“Apple’s strategy to enforce patents on other vendors started working fine, so maybe they will remain so,”
