Apple dominated Silicon Valley technology news Tuesday, as the Cupertino company\'s retrial with rival Samsung kicked off, the newest iPad had its debut, and the iPhone\'s market share continued to dwindle.
In San Jose, part two of the battle of the tech giants kicked off, as a retrial began to determine the penalty Samsung will pay for roughly half of the products a previous trial determined violated Apple\'s patents on mobile technology. Judge Lucy Koh struck down about $450 million of the more than $1 billion verdict the previous trial awarded Apple, and the new jury will decide a new total, with the results expected to set parameters for future battles between these two companies and other tech giants.
Tuesday\'s courtroom action focused on choosing that jury, with one whole slate of potential members asked to leave after it was found out they talked about the case while waiting to be called. professtional pcb prototype in China( With jury selection dragging out, it seemed opening statements would wait until Wednesday.
For fans of Apple devices, Tuesday\'s big news was the arrival of the iPad Mini with Retina display, which the company announced last month along with the iPad Air, but failed to give a firm release date for the smaller tablet. Apple began selling the device in two colors on its website Tuesday morning, and sent out a news release celebrating the arrival.
The newest iPad Mini, with a price tag higher than the previous iteration\'s debut cost, may not last, however. Reports have suggested that Apple\'s component suppliers are having trouble producing enough of the high-definition display, which could hurt supply in the holiday shopping season. Apple marketing executive Phil Schiller hinted at the issue in Tuesday\'s news release, saying, \"We\'re working hard to get as many as we can in the hands of our customers.\"
That could be an issue, as research has suggested that the iPad Mini is more popular with tablet customers than the full-sized iPad since the smaller option was introduced last year. Apple needs the iPad Mini to boost sales as Android tablets market share from the world\'s most valuable company.
Google\'s (GOOG) Android mobile operating system is also gaining share in smartphones, even as Samsung seeks to switch to a different operating system. Android devices accounted for more than 80 percent of the smartphones shipped in the third quarter of the year, IDC reported Tuesday, and an advance by Microsoft left Apple\'s iPhone with a smaller share of the market, at 12.9 percent versus 14.4 percent in the same quarter last year.
