The chief executive of Samsung Electronics has expressed confidence about the ongoing patent battle with Apple, saying that no smartpohone can exist without patents from Korea’s technology giants.

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.

I think this would probably apply to most mobile OEMs. They all own huge portfolios, whether built or acquired.

Samsung is very bullish, it doesn't look like it will be taking any crap from Apple and January will be an important month for both.

At the end of the whole process its just waffle though.

Even if Samsung own a patent that could in theory stop Apple selling any devices, i dont think any country would allow them to do so. That would be unfair monopolisation of the market.

Thats a bit of bad taste humor right there. I hope nobody from North Korea is reading this.
