sell your mobile - Apple Files Lawsuit Against Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Apple and Samsung’s multi-million dollar bickering continues in the US courts as the Cupertino-based company throw up a fresh round of patent infringement allegations against the Korean electronics giants.

While Samsung were merrily celebrating the recent accolade of top-selling mobile phone vendor in the world, Apple were looking to spoil the party by filing a motion in a U.S. district court to ban Samsung Electronics' Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the U.S.

Apple’s complaints amidst an appeals court ruling earlier in the week that sided with the Californian tech mega-brand on the legitimacy of an iPad design patent. While all these fun and games are being played out, Apple and Samsung are pencilled-in to go into court-mandated settlement negotiations (worth a pretty penny or two, one would imagine) set for May 21 and May 22, thus meaning the new injunction is not likely to be granted over the next few days.

The motion for a preliminary injunction against the Galaxy Tab 10.1 was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, where Judge Lucy Koh has the unenviable task of presiding over numerous cases involving Apple and Samsung patent claims for both tablets and smartphones, and with Samsung’s best-selling mobile phone, the Galaxy SII, currently tearing up the market, Apple will be hoping to make a serious dent in the Korean company’s future plans.

Apple said in its recent motion: "While this Court had concluded that Apple had failed to establish likely success on the merits, the Federal Circuit held instead that Samsung had failed to raise a substantial question as to validity of the D’889 patent based on obviousness,"

Expect this battle to be long drawn-out and bloody.
