Apple seeks ban on U.S. Samsung Galaxy S III
posted by Alan F. / Jun 06, 2012, 7:22 PM
Apple purchased a Samsung Galaxy S III in the U.K. and is claiming that the device uses a data tapping patent owned by Apple and is one the patents that the tech titan is claiming that the HTC devices infringe on. The other patent that Apple claims the Samsung Galaxy S III infringes on has to do with unified search as it relates to Siri. Apple is said to be looking at some other patents including its new slide-to-unlock patent and one that covers autocomplete. The iPhone manufacturer's motion noted that press reports say that 9 million units of the Samsung Galaxy S III have been pre-ordered (a claim, by the way, that came from a Samsung executive), making the phone the "the most extensively preordered piece of consumer electronics in history." By bringing that up, Apple looks like a severely injured party.
On Wednesday, Samsung told the court that it was too late for Apple to add the Samsung Galaxy S III to its Samsung GALAXY Nexus motion. The Korean based firm said that if Apple wants an injunction against the Samsung Galaxy S III, it should file a new motion. Apple has asked Samsung to delay launching the device in the States until the court rules on its request for the preliminary injunction. Samsung said in response that Apple's motion would have nothing to do with the launch date of the Samsung Galaxy S III in the States. source: FOSSPatents

I agree! Skyvi and several more on android market. Most all of phones I have owned has slide to unlock! Apple, You Big Cry Babies!!!!!!! Phones coming out that is way better and faster and blows you away in sales, now your going to whine about it. Apple has way to many issues with me to buy anyway. Guess if apple sales drops, they don't want any others selling either. Just make a better phone losers. No changeable battery or memory card in iphones. Thats stupid!!! APPLE SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!

Can Apple Fanboys ever be original? Like I said on my post earlier, how you like that Notification slide down that Apple oh so obviously ripped off of Android? Apple is making an iphone with a bigger screen, ANDROID COPY CATS! See how stupid that sounds too? Oh but that's okay tho right, it's Apple. They can feed you crap and you'll thank them for it. I guess you also think it's okay when Apple steals apps from developers and claims them for themselves too right?
