Former Samsung employee admits to leaking iPad info

Posted on Friday, September 16th 2011 at 1:17 a.m.

cNet is reporting that a former Samsung manager testified during the insider trading trial of Global Research executive Joel Fleishman that he leaked information about the iPad approximately a month before the device was released.  Following the leak Samsung lost a contract to supply the iPad with its LCD screens.

I wonder if the leak and subsequent cancellation of the supply contract is why Apple and Samsung have been viciously attacking each other in the courts over the Galaxy II.
