Samsung Says They Will Sue Apple Once They Announce iPhone 5 With LTE
Samsung is still fuming that they got their trash handed to them in court last week. The legal beat down they received in court was just raw and powerful and awesome, and they totally deserved it.
Samsung is understandably mad, and probably a little embarrassed and majorly vindictive, so they went out this morning and declared that if Apple even thinks about releasing an iPhone 5 with LTE they will sue them immediately, and they may have the patents to win. Maybe.
LTE has been emerging as the new standard for high-speed mobile data connections, and it turns out that Samsung has quite a few patents for it. Thomson-Reuters says Samsung owns about 12.2% of all existing patents pertaining to LTE technology, while Nokia owns 18.9%, Qualcomm has 12.5%, and Ericsson has about 11.6%.
Even though Samsung may own a lot of LTE patents, it’s not the sheer number of patents, but the quality that will determine how strong a legal weapon they can be used as. So it’s likely that Samsung is just trying to talk some smack after getting roughed up on the playground.
The Korea Times reports that Samsung is trying to partner-up with U.S. mobile carriers to fight back against Apple. They’re currently in talks with Verizon about modifying designs on Samsung Galaxy devices, and they’re going to start making more Windows phones with Microsoft so they’re not so dependent on Android.
