11:56 EDTGOOG, AAPLIDC: Google's Android OS had 78.1% share in Q4, Apple's iOS had 17.6%
IDC said: "The smartphone market passed an important milestone in 2013 when worldwide shipments surpassed the 1 billion mark for the first time, driven by continued momentum from Android and iOS. According to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, Android and iOS accounted for 95.7% of all smartphone shipments in the fourth quarter of 2013 (4Q13), and for 93.8% of all smartphone shipments for the year. This marked a 4.5-point increase from the 91.2% share that the two platforms shared in 4Q12, and a 6.1-point increase from the 87.7% share they had in 2012."..."Android finished the year where it began: as the clear leader in the smartphone operating system race. Samsung led all Android vendors with a commanding 39.5% share of shipments for the year. Worth watching is a crowded list of vendors jockeying for position in 2014, including Huawei, LG, Lenovo, Coolpad, and Sony. Should Lenovo's bid to acquire Motorola Mobility be realized, the new company will leap ahead of Huawei, which was the number 2 Android vendor in 2013." Reference Link

10:07 EDTAAPLVirnetX says court denies Apple motion in patent suit
VirnetX (VHC) announced that on August 8 the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Tyler Division, issued its patent claim construction, or "Markman" Order and ruled on a VirnetX motion in the ongoing patent infringement action between VirnetX and Apple (AAPL). Both parties had presented arguments on the disputed terms along with various other motions at a Markman hearing on May 20. In the Markman order, the court denied Apple's Motion for Summary Judgment of Indefiniteness, in which Apple alleged that some of the disputed claims terms in the patents asserted by VirnetX were invalid for indefiniteness. In a separate order, the court granted in part and denied in part VirnetX's Motion for Partial Summary Judgment on Apple's Invalidity Counterclaims. The court's order precludes Apple from asserting invalidity as a defense against infringement of the claims that were tried before a jury in VirnetX's prior litigation against Apple. Apple is not precluded from asserting invalidity as a defense against infringement of the claims that were not tried before a jury in the Apple I case. "We are extremely pleased with the court's rulings and we remain confident in the merits of our complaint against Apple," said Kendall Larsen, VirnetX CEO and President. "We believe the court's Markman Order and motion ruling represents another significant step towards the successful resolution of this litigation."
