Google is reportedly being dragged into the fight between Apple and Samsung, according to the Korea Times.

Apple was recently able to win a preliminary injunction against the Galaxy Nexus smartphone which was designed by both companies. Since the decision the two have been working together to fight Apple's offensive.

"It's too early to comment on our game plan (with Google) in the legal battle; but we will do our best to get more royalties from Apple, which has benefited from our technology," said a Samsung insider.

"The fight is becoming more dramatic and the possibility of a truce in the form of a cross-licensing deal, seems to be becoming likely."

Google is also in battle with Apple via its newly acquired Motorola Mobility unit.

Apple just want to slow down Samsung dominant position with sales of their 4G LTE phones. Apple can't compete right now because they don't have LTE iPhone. Apple is so pathetic and greedy.

Why is google siding with Samsung? They have Motorola, they should be helping their own fellow American company, but yet they are helping Korea to earn money. Shame on google for not helping America.

Keep fighting! The consumers will benefit. Google will be forcee to innovate better. What google has done is to wait for Apple to innovate a winning technology, then to hijack it by making a similar product available to the world through many channels. Eventually Google will be spread thin, and the their winning products will fade because income base erodes. A few examples, maps and search engines are gradually being replaces by equal or better products from competitors. Lastly, they don't know how to design hardware. Then there's this story about Samsung. They brought shame to themselves.
