Samsung also has a patent infringement case against Apple, in Japan. It seems that back in September they sued they rivals, for using the same app downloading technology and the same airplane mode in the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S as they have patented.

The case was ruled at the Tokyo District Court, which also denied their case. They specifically said that the technology used by Apple has enough different elements than the one used by Samsung and also that the airplane mode is just an extension of what was invented in the past.

The final decision is therefore to continue selling the iPhone in Japan after yet another episode from the Samsung Vs Apple story.
