Samsung are not happy with Apple's attempt to sue

A couple of days ago, we heard news that Apple were planning to sue Samsung for allegedly copying Apple's devices: iPhone 3GS and iPad in Samsung's products: Samsung Galaxy S and Samsung Galaxy Tab. Reports today suggest that Samsung are furious with Apple bearing in mind that Samsung are one of Apple's BIGGEST suppliers. Did Apple not realise the amount of damage that could be done if Samsung decided to pull the plug on supplying?

"Samsung will respond actively to this legal action taken against us through appropriate legal measures to protect our intellectual property," a Samsung spokesman said, as reported by the AFP.

An unidentified Samsung official was quoted by the AFP as saying: "Apple is one of our key buyers of semiconductors and display panels. However, we have no choice but respond strongly this time." Samsung provides Apple with a variety of components essential to Apple's iOS devices, including displays, processors, and NAND flash chips.
