Samsung to ban the iPhone 5 before it even launches
The iPhone 5 looks set to be at the new centre of patent war, with Samsung making moves to have it banned in Korea before it’s even gone on sale.
An unnamed Samsung source told The Korea Times that the company is preparing a lawsuit against the phone – despite the fact that is hasn’t even been officially announced yet.
Samsung claim that the iPhone 5 will definitely infringe some of its patents in Korea – unless Apple removes the telecommunication functions from the phone.
This is the latest spat in an ongoing patent war between Samsung and Apple that recently saw Apple attempt to have a number of Samsung smartphones and tablets banned around the world.
We’d rather the two companies spent less time taking lumps out of each other and just got on with making better phones. But with the iPhone 5 expected to be released in October and hopefully announced in the next week or so, it seems more likely that the dispute is going to intensify.
