It is nice to see Android manufacturers being offensive once in a while. HTC recently dropped one on Apple with patents acquired from Google, and now Samsung is taking it to Apple in France.
Samsung filed a complaint against Apple in a Paris district court for infringement of three mobile phone technology patents dealing with the iPhone and iPad. We don’t know the specific patents, but they concern UMTS, which is a third generation (3G) mobile cellular technology for networks based on the GSM standard. The complaint targets Apple’s iPhone 3G and 3GS, iPhone 4, and both generations of the iPad.
The complaint was actually filed in July, and the first hearing will take place in December.
