"Samsung Electronics said it would file for a sales ban on Apple's new iPhone with courts in France and Italy as the phone infringed its patents, widening its legal battle with Apple. The maker of Galaxy smartphones and tablets, which has emerged as a credible challenger to Apple's mobile devices, said on Wednesday it would file for a sales ban in other countries after further review. The latest salvo by the company comes less than a day after Apple's iPhone 4S left investors and Apple's fans wishing for more than a souped-up version of its previous device introduced more than a year ago." So yeah.
