Samsung to sue Apple over iPhone 5 in US

The Korea Times notes that Samsung is prepared to sue Apple if the iPhone 5 supports LTE. The company contends that the iPhone 5 will infringe on its fourth-generation (4G) long-term evolution (LTE) connectivity patents.

The newspaper quotes a senior Samsung executive as saying, “It’s true that Samsung Electronics has decided to take immediate legal action against the Cupertino-based Apple.”

A court recently found Samsung guilty of infringing on several Apple patents, and issued the Korean company a fine of US$1.05 billion dollars. I guess some people just like to fight.
