Samsung to Go After Apple's iPhone 5

No patent, no peace


Samsung Electronics' mobile chief Shin Jong-kyun said Wednesday that there will be "no agreement" with Apple, a likely indication that the technology giant will sue its rival over long-term evolution (LTE) patents used in the iPhone 5. (See front page, Sept. 11 edition)

"We negotiated (with Apple) following the San Jose court's instructions for the top executives to meet numerous times but it was no use," Shin told reporters at the firm's headquarters in Gangnam. "An agreement seems to be out of the question."
