Apple forces Samsung to hand over Galaxy prototypes

Apple's legal battle with Samsung has taken a new twist, as a federal court forces Samsung to hand over samples of new phones for Apple to poke and pore over.

Apple's legal battle with Samsung has taken a new twist. The California outfit is suing the Korean corporation over alleged copying of Apple products in Samsung's Android range , and a federal court is forcing Samsung to hand over samples of new phones for Apple to pore over.

The phones and tablets in question are the Samsung Galaxy S 2 , Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Tab 10.1, Infuse 4G, and Droid Charge. Fortunately for Samsung, only Apple's legal team for this case will see the products, so no one from Apple or even Apple's in-house lawyers will see the rival devices.

While the Samsung Galaxy S 2 has just gone on sale in the UK and the Infuse 4G in the US, the other three devices aren't yet on the market.
