Apple iPhone 4S ban sees Samsung target new courts

Samsung has extended its Apple iPhone 4S ban attempts filing new proposed injunctions with courts in Japan and Australia as the patent war continues between the two companies

Tech behemoth and Galaxy S II creator Samsung has revealed it is seeking new legal injunctions preventing the sale of the recently released Apple iPhone 4S in Japanese and Australian markets.

Having already sought legal action against Apple’s latest pocket blower in France and Italy following the iPhone 4S release date last Friday, October 14th, Samsung has confirmed it is to take its patent infringing disputes global with new filings to be made in Asian and Australasian sectors.

Apple iPhone 4S Ban

Requesting courts rule to immediately halt sales of Apple iPhone 4S handset in Australia and Japan the Samsung court filings also seek to cease sale and distribution of the former Apple iPhone 4 and market dominating iPad 2 tablet in Japan.

The latest argument in a long and ongoing patent battle between the two leaders of the tech industry, the new court filings see Samsung suggest Apple’s latest handset infringes on intellectual property rights surrounding the method and apparatus for transmitting and receiving packet data via a mobile communication system.

Apple iPhone 4S Specs

Retaining the minimalist glass-backed form factor as its predecessor the Apple iPhone 4S has been completely re-jigged on the inside with the same ARM A5 dual-core processor found within the iPad 2 making a speedy appearance.

Elsewhere the handset’s rear-mounted snapper has been upped from 5- to an optimised 8-megapixel offering with 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities landing alongside the popular voice activated personal assistant Siri.
