Great news developers, Samsung has announced to host a developers conference of its own. The Samsung Developers Conference will be held in San Francisco, USA on October 27 where developers will get a chance to engage with industry leaders, meet other developers and even get a first chance to check out new Samsung tools.
Meeting at Westin St. Francis in San Francisco, Samsung is going right to the heart of development conferences. San Francisco is where Google hold their I/O conference annually, which is a precursor to Apple's WWDC. The landing page for this event is sparse, but notes that devs can "learn about Samsung tools and SDKs".
Samsung hasn't opened their registration for the conference but is currently inviting interested developers to register their interest. We will keep you posted when the registration opens.
Nokia files to get several Samsung products banned from being sold, surprisingly, in aid of Apple. According to the report, it is the only outsider to back Apple's claims of injunctions on some Samsung products that have infringed their intellectual property rights. It can be noted that Samsung and Apple have been involved in a very bitter case concerning patent infringement.
Apple seeks to have some of Samsung products that were found to violate their patents from getting sold in the US but their appeal was not honored in the District Court. As a result, they are taking it to the Court of Appeals. Nokia has asked to be given more time to submit their statement and Nokia argued that a District Judge was wrong to rule against Apple's request for injunction.
It can be recalled that not long ago, the Finnish giant has also filed legal proceedings against the iPhone maker and Apple was said to have settled out of court.
These two companies will take on the currently number one manufacturer in the US Court of Appeals and the case will be heard later this year.
