Well, since Samsung couldn't get an early peek at the iPhone 5 and iPad 3
, the company has simply decided to take a page from Apple's playbook
. A senior exec told The Korea Times
it plans to file a request to block the sale of the upcoming iOS handset in its Korean homeland the moment the device is announced. According to the Times
, the anonymous exec said it would leverage its wireless technology patents and demand that Apple either remove the telecommunications features -- turning the iPhone into an iPod touch -- or simply be banished from the Korean market. The knock-down-drag-out war between the two companies has only seemed to escalate in recent weeks, as Sammy has taken a much more combative
approach. We can only hope the two get tired of divvying up the globe and declare a draw in this game of patent Risk.
