patent spat with Samsung has now reached the land of the rising sun. Reuters is reporting that Cupertino is taking the Korean manufacturer to court in Japan, over alleged patent violations pertaining to the iPhone and iPad (presumably, the Galaxy S family and Galaxy Tab 10.1). Japan's Kyodo news agency first reported the news, citing unnamed insiders who claim that Apple is looking to halt sales of Samsung's allegedly patent-infringing devices, while seeking ¥100 million (about $1.3 million) in damages. Further details of the suit remain unclear at this point, but we'll definitely be following it closely.
