It has been reported by Reuters that Apple will be dropping patent claims against new Samsung phone known as the Galaxy S3 mini, but of course, this is not because Apple is still in the spirit of Christmas, but rather, after Samsung claimed that they will not be offering the Galaxy S3 mini for sale in the strategic US market. I wonder whether this will hold true for Apple in other countries where the Galaxy S3 mini is sold, and there is a sizeable presence of the iPhone there.
This particular agreement was disclosed by Apple in a filing on Friday in U.S. District Court in San Jose, California. When contacted, there was no comment from both sides of the divide – representatives for both Apple and Samsung remained mum on the situation. What do you make of this situation – is there some sort of unspoken peace accord that both companies are working towards, or is it a temporary ceasefire? Are you disappointed that the Galaxy S3 mini is not headed to the US?
