Samsung Seeking Ban of iPhone 4S in Europe 331

Posted by samzenpus
from the no-4s-for-you dept.
First time accepted submitter KingofSpades writes "Samsung has announced that they will try to stop the sale of Apple Inc.'s iPhone 4S in France and Italy. Samsung believes that Apple is 'severely violating' some of their patents. From the article: 'Samsung will file motions with courts in Paris and Milan seeking the ban, each citing two patent infringements on wireless telecommunications technology, the Suwon, South Korea- based company said in an e-mailed statement yesterday. Apple unveiled the iPhone 4S in Cupertino, California this week and aims to start sales later this month.'"

    Hello fanboy.

    You realize, for example, that that is the same camera that has been available for quite some time in *other* phones?

    Oh wait, it's magical and new.

    Ummm..... you sure about that?

    LG Display (Korean: LG , KRX: 034220) is the world's largest LCD panel maker,[1] ahead of Samsung Electronics in a slender lead. Currently, the two South Korean companies together exceed 50% of the global LCD panel marketLG_Display [Wikipedia] []

    Doesn't that mean that Samsung is the second largest manufacturer of said panels? If that is the case doesn't that mean that Samsung will just stop taking orders from Apple if it cuts into their own business? Think about it.
