Verizon has now entered into the Samsung –Apple patent
debate, claiming that the ban of Samsung products would be bad for their business and would be "contrary to the stated goals of the U.S. government."
In court documents, Verizon argues that fewer Samsung devices mean fewer subscribers to their high-speed network.
"The accused Samsung devices are among the few products that can access Verizon Wireless's next generation high-speed network," the company claimed in a court filing.
Although Verizon sells the iPhone, it also sells a range of Samsung phones including the Droid Charge, Fascinate, and Continuum. Big Red is the first carrier to comment publicly on the ongoing patent dispute between Apple and Samsung, but I bet they won't be the last.
