Samsung plans to try and ban the next iPhone in Korea, based on violation of its wireless patents
Samsung is reportedly readying a "scorched earth" litigation campaign of its own against the next iPhone, as it plans to sue the bejesus out of Apple with the tried-and-true wireless patent claims it is already asserting against the current iPhones and iPads. 

The Korean Times newspaper says this is supposed to be a surprise lawsuit in the wake of the iPhone 5 launch next month, but it's obviously not that much of a surprise now, if this thing is really in the making.

In places where Apple is suing it for violation of some design and interface intellectual property, Samsung has launched counter-lawsuits, claiming that Apple infringes on seven of its own mobile-related patents. These technologies will allegedly still be used by the next iPhone (s) unaltered, so Samsung will try and capitalize on that, allegedly in attempt to preempt any new litigation strikes Apple could commence.
