Samsung: iPhone Wouldn't Exist Without Our Patents
Technology giant warns that patent disputes with rival will continue.
Samsung has warned Apple that its patent battle is far from over, with the former stating that the iPhone wouldn't exist without its patents.
"The truth never lies. Without Samsung-owned wireless patents, it's impossible for the Cupertino-based Apple to produce its handsets,'' Samsung's head of mobile and IT, Shin Jong-kyun, stated. "As you know, Samsung is very strong in terms of portfolios of wireless patents."
The executive's comments arrive after U.S. International Trade Commission's recent announcement that it will review a September decision that favored Apple over Samsung in a court case.
Back in August, Apple won over $1 billion in damages with a judge ruling that Samsung did infringe on several patents. The south Korean company has since launched several lawsuits against Apple and vice versa. The former has stressed that, unlike the HTC deal, Samsung won't negotiate a patent deal with the iPhone creator.
