Samsung schedules strategy meeting with Google’s Schmidt over Apple’s Android war

Google chairman Eric Schmidt will meet with Samsung execs in South Korea this week, Samsung's mobile chief has revealed, in what's tipped to be an attempt to boost Google's involvement in Android litigation.

Samsung is aiming to hijack Apple's new iPhone 5 launch by miring its rival in LTE patent litigation, sources at the company have apparently confirmed, echoing Apple's attempts to injunction new Samsung phones.

Apple faces uphill challenge invalidating HTC LTE patents

Apple faces uphill challenge invalidating HTC LTE patents

Apple may have a tougher than expected challenge persuading a US court to invalidate HTC LTE patents, with the trade judge presiding over the trial already agreeing with HTC on key issues of ownership.

Apple slashes Samsung’s iPhone 5 involvement says supply chain

Samsung's memory and displays will be absent from the first batch of Apple's new iPhone, insiders claim, after pricing and legal disagreements saw the Cupertino firm slash orders from its long-time rival. Patent fight tensions and arguments over costs have led to a stalemate of sorts, insiders tell Reuters and Bloomberg, though Apple is also believed to be working to reduce its reliance on any one individual company. However, Apple hasn't been able to entirely oust Samsung from its iPhone 5 supply chain: the processor powering the new smartphone will apparently still be produced by the South Korean firm.

iPhone 5 prepared for Samsung legal war with 434 LTE patents

Today Apple began sending out invites for its September 12 event, where the company is widely expected to reveal the next iPhone. The iPhone 5 is rumored to come complete with LTE functionality, but there's just one problem with that: Samsung has said that it will sue Apple if it releases a device with LTE. Since Apple's iPad already has LTE, we can take that to mean that Samsung will sue if Apple releases an iPhone with LTE capabilities.

Samsung may sue Apple over LTE implementation

Samsung may sue Apple over LTE implementation

Samsung has been indicating that it isn't going to Apple's victory in their high-profile patent case lying down. The company assured users that it "will take all necessary measures to ensure the availability of our products in the U.S. market," earlier this week, and will undoubtedly attempt appeal, going all the way up to the Supreme Court if it has to. But Samsung might have something up its sleeve, and it may not be long before we see Samsung taking Apple to court over patent infringement once more.
