After Verizon, T-Mobile also backs up Samsung against Apple in the patent wars
T-Mobile has filed a brief of amicus curiae, an opinion from a 3rd party, with the Californian court where Apple's patent infringement lawsuit hearing against Samsung will be held October 13.

The content of the motion is backing up Samsung against Apple, with almost the same arguments that Verizon used when it filed its own piece in Samsung's defense - that a ban on its products will mean stifling competition, slowing the pace of US wireless broadband innovation against the government guidelines, and ultimately job losses for Americans. 

T-Mobile is also saying that an eventual ban will affect its operations, since it has already prepared for sales and marketing of the Galaxy S 4G and the Galaxy Tab 10.1, two of the allegedly infringing products. Apple is banking on a technicality in an attempt to dismiss Verizon's filing, which it might use against T-Mobile, too, or it will be filing a response by October 6 otherwise.
