in Technology

Apple is currently suing rival Samsung Electronics over the copies of design of its key iPhone and iPad products. The technology giant claims that the South Korean firm's line produces the Galaxy mobile phones and tablets which are "blatant" copies of iPads and iPhones instead of being original and innovative. Apple filed suit against the Korean giant which alleged that products like Galaxy S series of smartphones, Galaxy Tab, Droid Charge 4G and the Galaxy S II. Just days after the lawsuit, Samsung has already hit back the tech giant. Samsung accused Apple of infringing ten mobile technology patents in a countersuit which is filed in South Korea, Germany and Japan.
