Apple Sues Samsung Over Galaxy Android Devices
By on April 18th, 2011

Apple is hitting Samsung with a patent infringement lawsuit, alleging that the Galaxy smartphones and tablets by Samsung infringe on Apple’s patents relating to the iPhone and the iPad.

According to the suit filed on Friday in the US District Court in Northern California, Apple is seeking injunctions, actual and punitive damages from Samsung.

“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,” the lawsuit said.

There has been no response from Samsung regarding the lawsuit. The mobile industry is currently fraught with lawsuits, the most notable ones being the ones between Apple and Nokia, Oracle and Google and Microsoft and Motorola. This lawsuit, however, is very interesting, because Samsung supplies components for multiple Apple products.

It’s very likely that this case will be settled between the two parties with some money exchanging hands, as is generally the case with such lawsuits.

Here are some images comparing the Galaxy S to the iPhone 3GS, which were included in the lawsuit.
