Samsung calls in the big guns in fight against Apple

Following the company’s crushing $1 billion loss in its high-profile patent lawsuit with Apple (AAPL), Samsung (005930) on Wednesday confirmed that it plans to hold high level meetings with Google (GOOG) to discuss the growing threat. “I will meet Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt on Thursday in Seoul,” Samsung mobile boss Shin Jong-kyun told The Korea Times during the Galaxy Note II launch event on Wednesday in South Korea. Shin wouldn’t elaborate but he did add that Samsung will be meeting with major carrier partners in the United States next week as well. While the task at hand — battling Apple in numerous courts around the world and fixing devices that have already been deemed to have infringed on Apple patents — is daunting, Shin noted that business is still booming. “Samsung revised up this year’s total handset sales target to 400 million from our earlier projection of 370 million,” he said.
