(Newser) – Apple's newest handset hasn't escaped its bitter patent war with Samsung. The Korean manufacturer filed a complaint against the iPhone 5 yesterday, claiming it violates all the same patents that earlier iterations did, ZDNet reports. So far the only casualties of the patent war have been older products, like the Galaxy Tab 10.1, which was banned back in June. Samsung got that ban lifted yesterday, pointing out that it had been more than a month since a court decision saying Samsung's phones infringed on Apple's patents, but its tablets didn't.

Doesn't Samsung manufacture Apple's iPhone and iPad CPU's?

I want to assume that this is just rich people bein tight wads with other rich people. But seriously it isn't like these are all getting tossed out. Judgements have been awarded so there has to be something sincerely valid about the suits.

It looks like Samsung is just as litigious as Apple.
