Another Record-Setting Quarter For Samsung



record setting for samsung

According to Samsung, the company has sold more than five million Galaxy Note II devices since its release two months ago in September; this settles the company’s position in a square lead over Apple, pushing Samsung towards another record-setting quarter, and reaffirming its prominence in the global smartphone market.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II is of similar half-tablet, half-smartphone design as the device it follows, the Galaxy Note. The latter required a five-month wait before reaching the equivalent five million sales position.

The Galaxy Note II runs the newest version of Google’s Android Jelly Bean OS, and is accompanied by Samsung’s S Pen stylus that can be used to digitally take notes and sketch. The 5.5-inch display screen is larger than the Galaxy S III smartphone screen, but still smaller than the Galaxy Tab tablets.

Furthermore, the Galaxy Note II is lighter and thinner than its predecessor, the Galaxy Note, which measured 0.37 inches thick and weighed less than half-a-pound. The new device also offers a speedier performance in comparison with the former release, and has a faster 1.6GHz processor.

The Samsung device is in competition with Apple’s iPad and iPhone, and its new success positions the company comfortably ahead of its rival. It was announced by Gartner that Samsung sold 55 million smartphones in the third quarter, whereas it had only sold 45.6 million in the second quarter. Apple, in comparison, sold 23.6 million iPhones in the previous quarter.

However, it was also suggested by Gartner that there is a possibility that Apple may benefit from the upcoming holiday period, where sales of the new iPhone 5 may increase.

Although this recent success highlights Samsung’s dominance in the worldwide smartphone market, the legal battles between both companies continue, and both will be returning in 2014 to the U.S. district court for the next fight in patent infringement claims.

More recent Apple and Samsung devices will be targeted in the trial, and these include the iPhone 5 by Apple and Samsung’s Galaxy S III smartphone. It will be the second U.S. case for the two competitors; the first case ended in August when Samsung was ordered to pay $1.05 billion in damages after a California judge ruled that Apple’s designs had indeed been copied.

Brazilian footballer Neymar faces fresh police questioning over claim he raped a model in Paris hotel room



Brazilian footballer, Neymar, 26, will be questioned for the second time over claims he raped a model in a Paris Hotel room.

The Paris Saint-Germain star has reportedly agreed to fly into São Paulo in Brazil to meet with detectives over the alleged rape attack on 26-year-old model, Najila Trindade Mendes de Souza. 

Speaking to MailOnline, Dr. Juliana Lopes Bussacos, the officer in charge of the investigation, said: ‘He will be treated like any other citizen. He has the same rights as any other man.

‘I have interviewed many men in these situations and everyone is equal and they all have the right to tell their story and produce evidence to back it up.’

With detectives desperate to get to the bottom of what happened,  Dr. Juliana said she couldn’t enter into details of the rape accuser’s complaint due to confidentiality.

‘There are so many questions and answers that need clarification. He says he did not rape her and she has said she has evidence.

The former Barcelona striker is expected to give his statement in the next 48 hours, and then officers will decide if there is a case and if it is necessary to bring them together.

This comes after it was revealed that Neymar could be cleared of the rape accusation levied against him within days over lack of more evidence from his accuser.

The Brazilian model has been informed by her lawyer that she faces seeing her case against the Paris Saint-Germain star dropped except there is more evidence. She also faces losing the second lawyer to represent her after he said he could not carry on if his professional ‘trust’ in her was compromised.

Trindade’s attorney Danileo Garcia de Andrade said he still believed Ms. Trindade had a case, but he would step aside if there was a lack of evidence.

Mr. Daileo said he had given her a deadline to produce the video and photographs she claimed to have had which would help prove her allegations of rape against the Brazilian superstar. But if the evidence was not forthcoming, he said, he would drop the case next week.

Mr de Andrade told Brazil’s UOL Esporte: ‘If the police investigation of the supposed break-in where she lives shows there was no break-in, I am leaving the case.’

He added: ‘The attorney-client relationship is based always on trust. If there is no trust, then there is no reason to stay on’

Trindade claimed she was the victim of ‘aggression and rape’ by the Paris Saint-Germain player in a hotel room in the French capital on May 15. She said the encounter started out consensual but quickly turned violent, leaving her with bruises and scrapes to her legs and buttocks, with Neymar refusing to stop.

She told police her tablet containing a seven-minute video, messages and photos she alleged incriminated the footballer, was stolen in a burglary at her apartment. But the authorities said they found no major signs of a break-in and only Ms. Trindade’s fingerprints and those of her maid and friends around the flat.

Neymar has strongly denied raping her but admitted that what happened between them was consensual.
