zIt seems that the disputes against Samsung and Apple will never end as another one is on the way at the moment. Samsung won almost all battles between the two big companies in the world of smartphones and today it did it again.

Samsung won a new battle with Apple in the U.S. and the International Trade Commission has issued an import ban on iPhone 3, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad 3G and iPad 2 3G. The ITC prevented the older devices from Apple to entry the country, as they are produced over seas and this is a big win for Samsung.

The decision is the result of the violation of a patent (No 7,706,384) which is named “appartus and method for encoding/decoding transport format combination indicator in CDMA mobile communication system.” Samsung claimed that Apple used the technology on its older devices that violated the patent. The decision will not be applied for newer Apple devices. The rival of Samsung hoped that the patent to be classified as an essential one, but this didn’t worked for them.

Of course, Apple will appeal the decision and we will have a final result after over a year maybe or more. So, the fight will not end soon, but Samsung is in pole position now as Apple suffered a big hit in the first round. The victory is symbolic as these model aren’t fabricated any more, but for sure Apple is annoyed about the decision which seems to be a little bit tasty for Samsung.

This victory created a precedent and Samsung is very happy about it as victories started to grow in their favor. For fans of smartphones around the world, it seems to be just another battle won by Samsung, but this can be the final battle if Samsung will win it again after appeals made by Apple.
