Ahead of iPad debut, Samsung hits Apple with a suit

Some credit has to be given to Samsung Electronics' sense of timing.

Just hours before Apple is set to unveil the latest iteration of its iPad, the technology giant was hit with yet another patent lawsuit from Samsung. This time, Samsung is alleging in a suit filed in South Korea that Apple's iPhone 4S and iPad 2 are violating three patents, according to Reuters.

The lawsuit represents a further escalation of tensions between the smartphone rivals, who are shaping up to be the two dominant players in the business. Samsung last year had briefly surpassed Apple in smartphone sales thanks to the strength of its Galaxy S II phones, but Apple surged back with the launch of the iPhone 4S in October.

Representatives from Samsung and Apple weren't immediately available to comment to CNET.

The two have tangled with each other in the courtroom with mixed results. Between the two companies, there are more than two dozen cases filed in 10 countries. The results have been mixed for both sides, with a series of rulings and appeals marking little progress for either.
