Just two days after Apple released their faster, more talkative iPhone 4S into the wild, Samsung has asked the courts to stop sales of the iPhone 4S in both Japanese and Australian markets. In addition, Samsung has asked the Japanese courts to ban sales of the iPhone 4, which now comes in an 8GB capacity, and the popular iPad 2 tablet. Samsung’s James Chung had this to say:

We are now counter-attacking Apple again.

Samsung told the Japanese courts that Apple is violating their user interface and technology patents in their smartphones and tablets, while they told Japanese courts that Apple has violated patents in the realm of wireless telecommunication standards. Today’s news comes just after Apple’s victory of a ban on the sale of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia last week.
