Samsung: If Apple Releases an LTE iPhone, We%u2019re Ready to Sue %u2013 Droid Life.
Perhaps the biggest reason why many Android phone users have ditched iPhone is the big speed bump up from 4G LTE over the iPhone's meager 3G radio. However, after Apple poisoned the well with its litigation over design and trade dress patents, it is highly likely that the release of a 4G LTE iPhone 5 will generate the mother of all follow up lawsuits, as Samsung holds a boatload of LTE patents. Perhaps this is why Apple and Samsung chief executives have been talking secretly in the past few weeks. Could a global settlement be coming? Or, are we in for another year or two of big time litigation? Inquiring minds want to know.
