As the legal tussle between Apple and Samsung heats up, the two electronics giants are ready for another showdown in March 2012.
As reported earlier this week, Australian court as ordered Apple to share details of contracts signed with Australian carriers with Samsung. Aiming to stall the sales of iPhone 4S in Australia, Samsung has sought information about subsidies that Apple receives from carriers.

Ever since Apple sued Samsung for plagiarising and copying the design of iPad for its Galaxy Tab 10.5, sleepless nights started for South Korean company.
