Samsung Ready to Sue Apple Over iPhone 6

As the world awaits the unveiling of Apple's iPhone 6 which is set to launch on September 9th, trouble is already brewing between Apple and their arch-rivals Samsung.  Rumors are that Apple will announce two versions of the iPhone 6, one with a 4.7-inch screen and one with a 5.5-inch screen.

Apple, which has historically protected its designs using patents (most-notably the patent for rounded
corners) now embarrassingly finds itself at the business end of a lawsuit for patent infringement after Samsung announced that they plan to sue for Apple's blatant infringement on their patent of 5.5 inches.

After losing a 1 billion dollar lawsuit for infringing on Apple's patents, Samsung seeks to recover their losses by going after Apple for infringing on their 5.5 inch design that was used on their highly-successful Galaxy Note II "Phablet".

Apple's Tim Cook responded to Samsung's threats to sue by suggesting that Samsung's flippant use of the letter 'i' has caused Apple irreparable damages.
