A big concern surrounding recent device releases by Samsung comes in the form of ongoing patent disputes with Apple. One more than one occasion, in more than one country, Apple has requested the band of Samsung’s recent product lineup due to claims of patent infringement, both in design and software. Samsung is hoping to avoid these problems with their recently announced Galaxy Nexus. President Shin Jong-kyun has gone on the record stating that the company has taken every measure possible to avoid the same legal issues with the new Google Experience device.
His actual statement read more along the lines of Samsung not knowingly stepping on any of Apple’s toes with the release of the Galaxy Nexus, and his choice of words seems to indicate that the manufacturer had previously decided to be ignorant to potential patent issues. According to Jong-kyun, Samsung is taking patent issues much more seriously with future releases.
