Samsung today fired back at Apple’s recent allegations of patent infringement relating to the Galaxy S III. Apple has claimed the phone infringes on at least two of its patents, and has requested an injunction to prevent sales in the US until it can figure it out for sure. Samsung responded in a statement that it can and will “demonstrate to the court that the Galaxy S III is innovative and distinctive“. The Galaxy S III went on sale in Europe on May 29th, and is expected to go on sale in the US in July, months before Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 5.
This is just the latest in the never ending feud between Apple and Samsung, and it seems Apple is feeling more and more vulnerable as it seeks to maintain its market share through litigation instead of innovation. We’ll keep you posted, but for those of us waiting for a Galaxy S III here in the States, let’s hope this gets settled quickly.
