The saga continues, ladies and gents. Samsung is showing that it’s not too fussed by Apple wanting to ban the sale of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia, by submitting its own counter-claim that to the Federal Court of Australia. In this claim, Samsung says that Apple’s iPad and iPhone are infringing upon 7 of their patents.
These patents are mainly based around wireless communication standards (more info after the break). The obvious settlement that Samsung is going for here is the approval of sale for the blocked Galaxy Tab 10.1 along with any further devices they wish to launch here in Australia.
Samsung have said..
“It [Samsung] has invested continuously in R&D, design and technology to produce our innovative and cutting-edge mobile devices.”
I sure hope the Nexus/Galaxy Prime and Galaxy S III are two of those cutting-edge mobile devices Samsung are working on. A run-down of the 7 patents in questions after the break.
