Samsung Seeks Info on Carrier Subsidy, iPhone 4S Source Code

Few weeks before, Apple succeeded in banning the launch of Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia. After this Samsung's counsel urged the courts in Australia to issue an order against Apple to reveal the source code of iPhone 4S.

According to Smart Office Samsung also demanded details of subsidies that have been agreed with carriers in Australia.

Counsel Cynthia Cochrane told the judge that, "If subsidies are given for the iPhone 4S there are less to go around for my client's products."

According to the Korean consumer electronics giant Samsung iPhone 4S "should be barred from sales in Australia" as it has certain wireless technologies that are in the Samsung's product and they are not licensed by Apple.

And on the other hand, Apple has soaked up subsidies of carriers making the market for Samsung smaller in Australia.

Apple in reply of this, said that they have covered third-party license that has been granted to the company by Qualcomm.
