    We aren't sure if you can call this a large victory, but it is a bit of a surprise that many might not have seen coming. Samsung just won a sales ban from the U.S. International Trade Commission on several older Apple devices including the AT&T models of the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 3G and iPad 2 3G. The sales ban is because Apple was found to infringe on a Samsung patent for 3G wireless technology related to the ability to transmit multiple services accurately at the same time. Here's a quote with more of the details as well as comments from both sides,

    At this point the ruling will now go to the Office of the President. If it is not vetoed then it immediately goes into effect. There is some industry speculation that if this happens, Apple will be forced into a position to finally start negotiating a patent licensing deal with Samsung and other Android OEMs just to "save face," or risk a backlash that could further erode their reputation and stock price.

    And here we thought all that Samsung vs. Apple lawsuit stuff had died down...

    Thanks for the tip, swc2001!
