Salem Al-Utheina. "Under the contract ITC will be awarded a license to link the networks of the two countries by land cable through a border crossing point which will put information and data sharing on a fast track," Al-Utheina said.

APPLE DROPS PATENT CLAIM AGAINST SAMSUNG'S S3 MINI: Apple Inc. has agreed to withdraw patent infringement allegations against Samsung's new Galaxy S3 Mini, in exchange for assurances that the South Korean electronics giant will not market the smartphone in the US, Cnet has reported. The iPhone maker requested last month that the new smartphone and other Samsung products be added to the ongoing patent dispute between the two companies. "Apple will agree to withdraw without prejudice its request to include the Galaxy S III Mini in this case given Samsung's representation that it is not making, using, selling, offering to sell, or importing that product into the US," Apple said in a filing with the US District Court for Northern California.
