The lawsuit between Apple and Samsung has taken a rather nasty turn as Samsung have filed for an injunction against iPhone and iPad imports to the United States. It's a fairly bold move and part of the wider battle between the two over patent infringement.
For their part Apple have previously secured access to unreleased Samsung products as part of the legal dispute, whilst Samsung failed in an attempt to gain access to the next generation iPhone. Apple have also been busy filing a lawsuit in South Korea and there's tongues wagging that Apple are looking to wean themselves off Samsung components for their products and as such are looking for alternative suppliers.
Samsung's bid to restrict Apple device imports to America won't be decided overnight of course. The International Trade Commission will have to investigate the complaint and any decision is likely to take months if not longer to come about.
The information above is according to the SamFirmware website source.
