As part of Apple’s lawsuit, Samsung was ordered to hand over pre-production samples of the Samsung Infuse 4G, Galaxy S 2, Droid Charge, Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy Tab 8.9 over to Apple, so that Apple could decide if those products were also a part of the lawsuit and seek an injunction against their release.
On Friday, Samsung filed a motion asking Apple to turn over final samples of the iPhone 5 and the iPad 2, along with the retail packaging. It claims that it needs to examine those devices in order to check for any similarities with the Galaxy S 2 or the Galaxy Tab 10.1, so that it can prepare for any potential legal action by Apple.
The problem is, while most of the Samsung products have either launched or have been revealed, Apple’s iPhone 5 and iPad 3 are strictly under wraps. It’s highly improbable that Apple will agree to the request, but it’s a very bold move by Samsung. This lawsuit is definitely getting interesting.
