To put that into perspective, at around R7000 here in South Africa, that's a Retail total of two hundred and ten billion rand (R 210 000 000 000) or twenty-three billion nine hundred thirty-two million six hundred fifty thousand US dollars ($ 23 932 650 000)... That's just incredible.

That Apple lawsuit, was just loose change for Samsung.

Edit: Of course, working in the base currency of US dollars, at around $500 each, that's fifteen billion US dollars.

Think about it, that's just ONE PRODUCT.

Well $1B is not loose change because you are citing revenue figures and not profit figures.
If they pay the Apple amount (be it increased or decreased that will come off profit)

Samsung are doing wonderfully well now
In 2011 they made $18.3B. (whole company including semiconductors, TVs everything)
2012 will be better. Doing really well.
But $1B is 5.5% of 2011 profit.

If one looks at Smartphones it is estimated as at April 2012 that Apple and Samsung share 95% of the worlwide profit. Apple gets 80%, Samsung 15%. Both brilliant figures
I wouldnt be surprised if the combined number isn't even more than 95% now
I have heard slightly higher and lower numbers. Distribution remains similar though.

iPhone, Samsung S3 - Both seriously good phones
