Samsung wants to see the iPhone 5 and iPad 3 before comes out

On May 29, 2011

Apple has requested and received approval of an American court to see the prototypes of the Samsung tablet Galaxy Tab 10.1, the Samsung S Galaxy II and several other terminals to see if Samsung has infringed certain patents. Samsung now ask the same thing from a U.S. court but they want to see the prototypes for the iPhone 5 and iPad 3 arguing that their products will be on the market at the same time as the device’s test and want them to get ready in the event Apple will act again in court.

Certainly not the company’s engineers will see prototypes of the other party but their attorneys have the opportunity to examine them. I find it strange at the request of Samsung, which already have access to the components of iPhone 5 and iPad 3 considering that Apple are partners in their application so probably has a different purpose. It seems like Apple and Samsung would be negotiated for more than a year to a contract before they call Apple and sue them for a breach of patents. It is clear that this process is actually another reason behind the moment but none of the companies does not seem willing to go down.
