Samsung Continuum (Galaxy S)
The U.S. International Trade Commission today voted in favor of investigating Apple's patent and design complaints made against Samsung. In April, Apple sued Samsung alleging the company "slavishly" copied its designs and violated its smartphone and tablet patents. In July, Apple filed a complaint with the ITC, seeking to block Samsung from importing the infringing devices (a number of Android-based smartphones) into the country. The ITC will explore Apple's claims and see if an injunction against Samsung is warranted. Samsung has filed a similar complaint with the ITC against Apple, and also countersued Apple both in the U.S. and abroad.
Samsung debuted the Continuum Galaxy S Android phone for Verizon Wireless. The Continuum has a unique "Ticker Display" to show alerts and other content. Gimmicky, or gimme?
