Samsung has been trying to gets Apple’s iPhone 4S smartphone banned in Australia since the iPhone 4S went on sale last month, and there are now more developments in the case between Samsung and Apple in Australia according to Smart Office.
Samsung are claiming that Apple has violated three of its 3G wireless patents in Australia, and they have asked the court for access to the source code for the iPhone 4S from Apple as well as seeking details on agreements Apple has with the major mobile carriers in Australia, which include Vodafone, Telstra and Optus.
The judge who is overseeing this particular case between Samsung and Apple is Justice Annabel Bennet, the same judge that is overseeing the case of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 which has banned from sale in Australia last month.
Apple has said that Samsung have previously agreed to license the three mobile patents to Apple under the Fair, Reasonable, and Non-Discriminatory terms (FRAND) standard, but Samsung claims that the agreement for the three patents does not apply to Australia.
We suspect that Apple will be trying to block the move by Samsung to get their hands on the source code of the new iPhone 4S.
