T-Mobile and Verizon Show Support for Samsung in Patent Dispute
Both Verizon and T-Mobile voiced support for Samsung this week in Samsung's ongoing patent battle with Apple.
Both companies voiced their opinions on the patent litigation by making separate filings with the Northern District Court of California this week. Verizon was the first to do so, claiming a ban on Samsung products, or Apple’s attempts to secure one, would hurt the carriers ability to roll out its 4G LTE network.
“That investment depends on consumers having access to devices that can make use of that network. The accused Samsung devices are among the few products that can access Verizon Wireless’s next-generation high-speed network.” — Verizon filing
“At this late date, T-Mobile could not find comparable replacement products for the 2011 holiday season. These investments cannot be recouped easily.” — T-Mobile filing
The court is expected to make a ruling on October 13.

I disagree.Verizon must have covered their butt with lots of stipulations when signing contract with Samsung, even if Apple wins Verizon would not lose out because of the product on hand.There are many reason Verizon did this, but most importantly they do not want Apple to win because they do not want to be at the mercy of Apple. You know Apple is going after every other manufacturer, if Apple win the rest may fall just as quick then consumer gets screwed because limited selection and Verizon gets screwed because it is at the mercy of Apple.

If Apple wins, it's just business as usual and on to suing the next potential competitor......Amazon Fire.
