Apple iPhone 4S ban sought by Samsung

The longstanding feud between Apple and Samsung looks set to deepen as Samsung attempts to prevent sales of the iPhone 4S from several European markets in a fresh lawsuit

Korean tech giant Samsung has confirmed that it is to take Apple to court in an attempt to prevent sales of the newly launched Apple iPhone 4S ahead of the October 14th Apple iPhone 4S release date.

Further escalating the ongoing legal dispute between the two companies, Samsung has declared it is to file two preliminary injunctions against Apple and the iPhone 4S in a move that is being described as “all-out-war.”

With recent lawsuits seeing Apple having the Galaxy Tab 10.1 banned in European markets and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 removed from the IFA 2011 show floors just days after it was unveiled, Samsung’s decision to attack Apple’s latest handset appears little more than an act of retaliation.

With the Galaxy S II manufacturer offering few details on the two mobile patent technologies it claims Apple has infringed upon, Samsung has confirmed that it is to pursue an iPhone 4S ban in French and Italian markets.

"Apple has continued to flagrantly violate our intellectual property rights and free-ride on our technology, and we will steadfastly protect our intellectual property," said a Samsung spokesperson. "We are virtually going into an all-out war."

What do you make of the Apple iPhone 4S, is it a true Samsung Galaxy S II topper or is the Samsung handset still on top? Let us know what you think via the comments box below.
