iPhone 5 Release to be Delayed?

Well it seems from reading a few different posts, that Samsung is trying to put a stop to the release of the iPhone 5, which is supposed to be announced this Tuesday, October 4th. Here is in insert from International Business Times.

On Oct. 4, Apple will host the media at its Cupertino, Calif. headquarters to unveil the long awaited iPhone 5, and have a release date just days (maybe weeks) later. It will be a coronation of sorts for new CEO Tim Cook, who will face the public for the first time in Apple’s post-Steve Jobs era. But Apple’s prodigal brother will be there to spoil the party.

Samsung, according to reports, will pursue a complete sales ban on the fifth generation iPhone using various wireless patents of Samsung. “For as long as Apple does not drop mobile telecommunications functions, it would be impossible for it to sell its i-branded products without using our patents”, The Korea Times quoted a Samsung insider as saying.

 Does Samsung have something here? They just might, but then again, Apple is quite persuasive and I think they will take their chances and release the iPhone 5 anyways. If they sell enough, I am sure no lawsuit from Samsung can’t be paid off! Read the full article here.
