The ongoing legal battle between Samsung and Apple has taken a new twist.
This past Thursday (Nov. 22), a judge ordered Apple to give Samsung valuable information about their patent deal with HTC. This will allow Samsung to see the entire patent agreement between HTC and Apple. Insiders say the Korean comany feels this will only help them against Apple's constant attempts to have their best products removed from stores. These items now include:
Samsung's Galaxy S III running the latest Android software (which recently passed the iPhone in global dominance)
Samsung's Galaxy Note 2
Samsung's Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wifi
Samsung's Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
Samsung's Rugby Pro
Samsung's Galaxy S III Mini
If so, the company argues, Apple's request that infringing Samsung products be removed from the market falls apart, because Apple was happy to "forego exclusivity in exchange for money" — and in this instance, Apple is already receiving money in the form of a hefty $1.049 billion verdict.
