Samsung demands Apple’s Galaxy Nexus ban be frozen

Samsung demands Apple’s Galaxy Nexus ban be frozen

Samsung has appealed against the preliminary injunction blocking US Galaxy Nexus sales, arguing Apple cannot prove that iPhone market share is legitimately threatened by the Android phone. Apple secured the early injunction late last week, convincing a US judge that the Galaxy Nexus is likely to be found infringing on at least one of four patents the Cupertino company holds. However, Samsung insists that Apple's case fails to prove that the potential loss of market share caused by the third-gen Google phone is as "substantial" as the Federal Circuit's requirements.

More mystery and intrigue around the hotly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III, as Korean news reports tip not only a 4.65-inch 720p display like the Galaxy Nexus, but a move away from the much-maligned pentile panel technology.
