Apple iPad and iPhone banned in US
Following on going saga between Apple and Samsung for supremacy, new information reaching us is that Samsung just achieved another victory in the US over Apple with the ban of iPhone 4, 3GS, 3 and iPad 2 (WiFi + cellular).
This is as a result of Samsung stating that these banned products infringed on its patents with the way data handled by the banned devices are encoded and decoded over a cellular network.
Consequently, the US International Trade Commission (ITC) today ruled that Apple infringed on Samsung Patent No. 7,706,348 titled "Apparatus and Method for encoding /decoding transport format combination indicator in CDMA mobile communication system" and as such iPhone 4 (AT&T models), iPhone 3GS (AT&T models), iPhone 3G (AT&T models), iPad AT&T models(AT&T models) and iPad 2 3G (AT&T models) be disallowed for sale in the US.
Although it is very certain that Apple would appeal in a federal court but this won't tone things down for Apple.
Just last week, Samsung had victory on a case against Apple in Netherland. With this victory again comes joy for the company.
We are certain that this war is far from over.
Stay tuned as we notify you of more info in this war of the gaints
