Samsung has asked a court in Netherlands to ban 3G iPhone and iPad. It may also Apple iPhone 5 ban too when it is launched
Samsung has taken the fight to Apple by arguing in an European court that 3G iPhone and iPad must be banned. The Korean giant has taken the step following Apple getting banned Samsung Galaxy Tab and Tab 2 in the lucrative German market. Cupertino based Apple, the manufacturer of iPhone and iPad, the largest selling smart phones and tablet has been following the case against Samsung in different courts across the world.
Samsung has claimed in a Netherlands court that all 3G Apple iPhone and Apple tablets named as iPad need to be banned there. The company has 3G patents that may make it difficult for Apple to defend the sales of 3G smart phones in many parts of the world.
We were hoping that Samsung may also get active in the patent ignited wars that Apple has been waging against it with great zeal. Apple claims that Samsung Galaxy tab is too similar to its iPad and Samsung Galaxy S2 is looking almost identical to its highest selling iPhone.
Samsung has asked the court to ban Media Markt and all Apple subsidiaries across the Netherlands from selling 3G iPhones and iPads forthwith without any delay.
Apple seems to be in no mood to forget Apple. Last month Apple had got all Samsung tab 7.7 removed from a huge tech fair in Germany.
Meanwhile Samsung is now aiming to stop the launch of Apple’s next generation iPhone in the market. Apple iPhone 5 release is expected within weeks, though Apple is still to make any announcement in this regard formally.
