In the latest developments in the ongoing patent saga between Samsung and Apple, Samsung today revealed a plan to countersue Apple for patent infringement within its flagship iPad tablet while pledging to push back the official launch date the Australian version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 to the end of next month.
Legal representatives from both parties met for a directions hearing in the NSW Federal Court today, where barrister David Catterns, acting for Samsung, revealed to the court a plan to countersue Apple once the case made it to trial.
In a statement, Catterns added that Samsung's counter-claim would also encompass the Apple iPhone.
