    Samsung (SSNLF.PK) Chairman Lee Kun-hee is at the center of a growing family feud, with two of his siblings suing him for billions of won in shares in various Samsung entities. It's unclear how the suits would affect Lee Kun-hee's cross-holdings in Samsung firms, although it's unlikely he'll lose control of Electronics.

    BGR leaks the specs for Samsung's (SSNLF.PK) Galaxy S III smartphone, the successor to its very popular Galaxy S II. The device's rumored featured set - a quad-core processor, 4.8-inch 1080p display, 4G support, and ceramic case - leaves Samsung well-positioned to maintain its leadership position in the high-end Android market. Samsung is also introducing its Galaxy Beam Android phone, which has a built-in projector.

    Micron (MU) +5.4% premarket after Japan-based DRAM maker Elpida files for bankruptcy protection. Elpida is expected to continue producing chips, at least for now, but the move should help other DRAM makers, including Micron, Samsung (SSNLF.PK) and Hynix (HXSCF.PK).

    OLED technology and materials provider Universal Display (PANL -2.7%) is selling off on news of top customer Samsung's (SSNLF.PK) LCD spinoff plans. While Samsung plans to hold onto its OLED panel business, concerns exist that the company's newfound focus on OLEDs could deter other panel makers from entering the market. LCD panel maker AU Optronics (AUO -4.9%) is also trading lower.

Local vendor ZTE (ZTCOY.PK) saw its share surge to 11% on the back of its Android lineup.

    Amazon (AMZN) and Barnes & Noble (BKS) respectively sold 3.9M and 1.9M tablets in Q4, estimates iSuppli, good for 21% of the overall market. Unsurprisingly, these sales did more damage to rival Android tablet makers than to the iPad (AAPL - 57% share), which still saw 39% Q/Q shipment growth. Samsung (SSNLF.PK) was the only other tablet vendor with significant market share (8%). (previously)

    Meet Edward Zabitsky, the lone remaining Apple (AAPL) heretic analyst who still rates the stock a Sell - and he's not backing off. iPhone prices may decline as Apple takes steps to compete with Android and Windows phones, he predicts, sending gross margins on the device down 25% from 50%-plus. “If a price war breaks out in Android phones, Samsung (SSNLF.PK) wins hands down."

    Samsung (SSNLF.PK) mulls over spinning off its LCD business in order to focus on its more profitable areas such as smartphones, non-memory chips, and next-generation panels. The LCD market is mired in a slump with weak demand and oversupply holding prices low.

    Apple's (AAPL) latest suits against Samsung (SSNLF.PK) demonstrate "the absurdity of the U.S. patent system," says Henry Blodget, noting the company has received IP protection for the smallest of innovations, including features long supported by web browsers and word processors. Blodget expects the end result of Apple's suits to be nothing more than cash settlements and hefty legal fees for all parties concerned.

    Apple (AAPL) files another suit against Samsung (SSNLF.PK), requesting a preliminary injunction to block sales of the new Galaxy Nexus smartphone for violating 4 patents.

    EU antitrust chief Joaquin Almunia warns companies not to use their IP to curb competition, saying he'll fine firms for breaking EU rules. It's not just Apple (AAPL), Samsung (SSNLF.PK) and other cellphone players who are at it - the EU is also investigating Honeywell (HON) and DuPont (DD) over car air conditioners.

    Samsung (SSNLF.PK) notches up another victory in its world patent war with Apple (AAPL), as a German court backs a preliminary assessment that the Korean company's reworked Galaxy 10.1 isn't a copycat iPad. Samsung altered the design of the device to bypass a sales ban imposed in September.
