British Gov’t Grants Huawei Access to 5G roll-out

The UK government has allowed Huawei to participate in parts of the country’s 5G network rollout.

Apple and Samsung has been caught up in a heated legal battle in which Apple has accused Samsung of infringing on various intellectual property rights and patents on not only the Galaxy Tab but a variety of other devices such as the android powered Galaxy S and S II smartphone. Under German copyright law, Samsung could be fined up to $350,000 for each violation and company management could be imprisoned if infringement continues.
