    There needs to be more clarity in making statements like this. It's the source code that relates to the patent dispute - the code handling 3G communications - not the entire OS source code, which some may be led to believe. Also it appears this code belongs to Qualcomm:

    Don't tell him that; it messes with his belief system.

    and on the Samsung request for Apple's carrier agreements, they have to turn those over too.

    And finally for those confused about the whole flow of lawsuits and findings, there's this link:

    I don't see anything about Qualcomm there, only the troll accounts from here doing their work over there, too.

    Apple had reportedly already turned over much of the source code to Samsung, but left out some details, perhaps the Qualcomm reference in this thread? Anyway, Apple has been ordered to turn over the rest of the code from the way I read things.



    BusinessWeek had a better explanation a few days ago on what Samsung was demanding of Apple:



    "Source Code



    In the Australian suit, Samsung also sought the source code for the iPhone 4S firmware to support its case that Apple infringes its patents for wireless transmissions. Apple has turned over 220 pages of documents relating to the source code, Fox said.



    Samsung said the source-code disclosure wasn?t enough because a file was missing. The company sought an order for Apple to produce the documents.



    ?Someone out there is attempting to obfuscate,? Samsung?s lawyer Cynthia Cochrane told the judge.



    Bennett deferred judgment on Samsung?s request for the additional source-code material and said she would deal with it on Nov. 11, if the two sides can?t reach an agreement in the meantime."

    Yesterday Apple agreed to answer Samsung counsel questions on the carrier agreements, so for now the Australian judge won't order Apple to turn over the contracts themselves. As for the earlier Qualcomm reference by another poster, yesterday the judge did order Apple to turn over the code related to the base-band chip supplied by Qualcomm, missing from the earlier 220 pages released to Samsung's counsel by Apple. A court-approved "expert" has examined the code and will report findings in a few days.
