After Apple iPhone location tracking issues jump up in South Korea, Japan and Germany, Samsung is now suing Apple in the U.S. The lawsuits are in retaliation to a lawsuit from Apple that alleges Samsung copied the iPhone and iPad.
Samsung says Apple is infringing 10 patents that “relate to fundamental innovations that increase mobile device reliability, efficiency, and quality, and improve user interface in mobile handsets and other products.”
The patented technology includes ways that a phone allows calls and Internet surfing at the same time; improvements in how text messages and attachments are sent; reductions in interference among mobile devices; and increases in the capacity of mobile networks, according to Bloomberg.
“Apple continues to violate Samsung’s patent rights by using these patented technologies without a license,” Samsung said.
Apple says that “It’s no coincidence that Samsung’s latest products look a lot like the iPhone and iPad, from the shape of the hardware to the user interface and even the packaging.”
From the word coincidence, everything can be created. Hope Apple and Samsung know best.
