Apple vs. Android Battle Of the Mobile OS:- Samsung Demanding the Source Code for iPhone 4S Firmware

Samsung continues its assault on Apple in Australia, demanding the source code for iPhone 4S firmware as well as Apple’s agreements with all major Aussie Telco’s as it look to ban iPhone 4S in Australia. The demand came after Apple gaining temporary ban over the sale of Glaxey Tan 10.1 in South Korea.
Samsung is now trying to ban iPhone 4S in Australia, claiming Cupertino violated three of its wireless 3G patents.
In Federal court, Samsung counsel Cynthia Cochrane said, her client would need the source code of the iPhone 4S and agreements Apple has with other major Telco’s in order to make the legal case for a ban before the court.
Justice Annabel Bennett, who is the Judge in Apple Vs Samsung Tablet case, and the person responsible for banning Galaxy 10.1, is also presiding this case

It goes to show that since the iPhone 3G was made available in Australia in July 2008, the impact on the market for every iPhone product has been significant, and has lead to a substantial increase … in market share by revenue.”
Cochrane said in court today.

If subsidies are given for the iPhone 4S, there are less to go around for my client’s products”.
Apple deny the infringement claiming Samsung agreed to license the three patents in question under Fair, Reasonable, and Non-Discriminatory terms (FRAND) standard.  However, Samsung say the international agreement may not extend to Australia and Apple rejected its previous invitation to license the patents in question.
