Well this came out of nowhere. Samsung has been selling the Galaxy S family of devices for a while now and has claimed the title of being the first manufacturer to reach the milestone of 10 million units sold. In addition, they have extended the name to their tablet with the Galaxy Tab lineup.
Well, Apple is not to fond of this route Samsung is going in and has apparently decided to sue them. According to the Wall Street Journal Apple filed a suit on April 15th that says the Samsung Galaxy S 4G, Epic 4G, Nexus S and the Galaxy Tab have violated Apple’s intellectual property in more ways than one. The suit basically states that Samsung basically copied Apple’s overall design style and UI. “Rather than innovate and develop its own technology and a unique Samsung style for its smart phone products and computer tablets, Samsung chose to copy Apple’s technology, user interface and innovative style in these infringing products”.
This will probably drag on for months and will eventually be dropped or settle out of court.
