Samsung Electronics has been chosen by Three UK to provide 3G and 4G LTE infrastructure equipment. It’s the first commercial mobile network roll-out for Samsung in Europe.
There’ll be a trial of LTE base stations across the UK from this year, with a commercial launch planned for 2013.
A court in the USA has ruled that Samsung has infringed a number of Apple patents for design and user interface, ordering the South Korean company to pay $1.05 billion (£664 million) in damages.
The long-running court case rejected Samsung’s claims that a number of its patents had been used without permission by Apple.
