Apple violates Samsung patent, some iPhones and iPads could be banned



Tweets have been flooding the Internet from the likes of Reuters, Bloomberg, and CNBC with the news that the U.S. International Trade Commission has dealt a pretty serious blow against Apple. According to the ITC, the iPhone maker violated one of Samsung’s smartphone and tablet-related patents and, as a result, Apple could experience limited bans on certain AT&T-branded iPhones and iPads. The iPhone 4 and 3GS as well as the first and second generation 3G-enabled iPads were named in the ruling.
