Engineers from Google will testify how Android was developed independently of the iOS

We are finally getting tired of the constant battles between Apple and Samsung and though they were advised by the judges to sit down and solve the matter, the issue still remains unsolved and there was no result from the meeting of both the companies. Hence, the matter still stands here unresolved and we might even think that this legal wrangling between the two smartphone giants will never end.

To sum it up from the latest court battle, Apple has demanded up to $2 billion in damages from Samsung. The Korean manufacturer has been blamed by Apple for infringing the five patents of the company which also include tap to search and slide to unlock and now they have asked for help from the Google engineers who have been asked to tesitfy in the courtroom about the creation of Android and one of these will most likely be Andy Rubin. This time there is a slight hope that the testimony and evidence from Google will put the legal battle to rest after it will be proved in the courtroom that Android, the software used bu Samsung, was developed indepently of the iOS. Apple is seeking up to $40 per device sold in royalties and this seems unfair for Samsung since the software development was done by Google and now that they are being dragged into this matter, it seems pretty likely that the matter will be put to rest soon.
