Shin Jong-Kyung, Samsung's mobile chief, says that the iPhone could not exist without the company's patents, reports the Korea Times.

"The truth never lies. Without Samsung-owned wireless patents, it’s impossible for the Cupertino-based Apple to produce its handsets," said Samsung’s mobile chief Shin Jong-kyun in a brief meeting with local reporters on his way to the company’s main office in downtown Seoul, Wednesday.

"As you know, Samsung is very strong in terms of portfolios of wireless patents," the executive added.


The executive also commented about the ITC's decision to review a decision which previously found that Apple did not infringe Samsung patents in making the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

"The re-evaluation decision by the USITC doesn’t necessarily mean Samsung is better-positioned for the fight with Apple. But Samsung will do its best," Shin told reporters.

SamDung only makes cheap knock offs for cheap people who think everything should be free or stolen. Poor os and not much for apps and no ecosystem. Lets face it there is a lot of cheap people in this world.
Poor Samsung - November 23, 2012 at 5:55pm
Samsung should be thankful that apple took the phone game ahead so they exist today. Go look at samsung's phones from 2007 or even 2008. They are clamshell 4 line screen phones. I love apple and I don't hate samsung. And the only reason samsung users act like losers is they know that if there was no iPhone there wouldn't be a galaxy. Because in a real world if you love something like a samsung phone which is 99% iPhone, 1% some extra features you can't hate apple. It is like dating someone that looks exactly like Megan Fox yet saying you hate Megan Fox. PS: also "the truth never lies"!?? Seriously? Who says that? Who are you Justin Bieber?

So.... If the wheel were not invented, nobody would be able to invent cars??? Wireless, like the wheel, is the industry standard and obvious. If Samsung didn't come up with their wireless patents, someone else would. It is just a matter of time.

Oh wow. In that case, if we go by your logic, you think nobody else would have invented rounded corners, Rectangular form factors, icons, etc., ? Talk of greed, double talk and being a sheep. Wow!!!
