However, after the couple of months, it seems that small firm finally able to come back in the market with a title of defeating the big boss.
Apple has already won two preliminary injunctions against Android tablet maker Samsung in Germany, Apple reported that they are violating their design patents, and the Judge just ruled in the favor of Apple. NK-T is a small android tablet maker from Spain, FOSS Patents Blog, highlighted the case yesterday with complete legal documents from the company.
