No Apple iPhones Without Samsung Patents

While HTC has bowed in front of Apple and is paying a huge sum to Apple on patent issue, Samsung is as resilient as before and continue to bite Apple as hard as it can.

Apple, which is otherwise largely dependent on parts and hardware manufactured by Samsung, continues to sue Samsung on patent issues and is hell bent to outscore Samsung in the court and the market.

But Samsung is not impressed. According to the head of Samsung’s mobile and IT division, Apple’s iPhone would be impossible if Samsung didn't license its patents to its fierce competitor. The Samsung outburst comes after The Korea Times quoted Samsung’s mobile chief  Shin Jong-kyun as saying that the iPhone is only possible thanks to some of Samsung’s wireless patents, an irony that we are sure is not lost on many.


Shing continues:
The truth never lies. Without Samsung-owned wireless patents, it’s impossible for the Cupertino-based Apple to produce its handsets."
“As you know, Samsung is very strong in terms of portfolios of wireless patents."
