Making good on a legal threat made three weeks ago in the Federal Court of New South Wales, Korean electronics giant Samsung has counter-sued Apple for intellectual property and patent infringement violations, targeting almost all of Apple's mobile gadget range, including the iPhone 3G, 3Gs, iPhone 4 and iPad 2.

Samsung has sued Apple for the alleged violation of seven of its patents by various iDevices, filing a claim in the Federal Court of New South Wales yesterday.

The seven patents Samsung alleges Apple has broken include patents for methods of data transmission and decoding, power management and mobile data management.
