Apple Inc. needs some strong reasons to accomplish its new patent infringement request against Samsung Electronics Co. who is first on the list of Apple’s lawsuits. The Cupertino Company intends to block Samsung’s latest smartphone generation in the U.S. remitting that the Galaxy S3’s S-Voice replicates iPhone 4S’ Siri.
The S3 model was released in the U.K. on May 29 and five carriers from U.S. said they will start selling the model on June 21, with two weeks after the first preliminary injunction meeting. Till today, Galaxy S3 scored nine million preorders from various corners of the world and Chris Chung, a Seoul-based spokesman for the Suwon-based company, said Samsung will start selling its latest model also in U.S. with or without a trial.
James Song, a Seoul- based analyst at Daewoo Securities Co., argued that is little probably for Apple to succeed: “Smartphones aren’t uniquely Apple’s products any more. It won’t be easy to find convincing reasons to block sales.”
