Add Verizon to the good guy side of this Apple vs. Samsung global mobile battle. In a court filing dated September 23, Big Red expressed its concerns in court over the idea that Samsung’s products could be banned from the U.S. In fact, their filing specifically said that “the requested injunction of certain Samsung products will harm Verizon Wireless and U.S. consumers” and that it “also has the possibility of slowing the deployment of next-generation networks — such as Verizon Wireless’s — contrary to the stated goals of the U.S. government.”
All I can say to that is, “Amen. Brother.” While I’m no lawyer, I would assume that with companies as big as Verizon standing up to the ridiculous war that Apple has waged against other phone manufacturers, that this can do nothing but help the situation for Android. And this is me shaking my head again at Apple.
