The impact of recent patent litigation involving Apple has clearly left its mark on Samsung. Keeping that in mind, Samsung seems to have carefully built the new Nexus phone to avoid any patent disputes. Considering the recent Patent deal with Microsoft, Apple is the only other major patent problem for Samsung and by avoiding them company expects to keep the business on track.
“Now we will avoid everything we can and take patents very seriously,” Shin told reporters. He also said that Samsung has tried to ensure that no known patent by Apple is included in the new Android smartphone and they will see if Galaxy Nexus remains 100 percent free from Apple lawsuits.
While, this is good news but we can’t really expect other patent trolls to keep quiet.
