iPhone 4SIn a California court on Friday, Samsung attorneys demanded information about what the next-generation iPhone – widely expected to be launched next month – will look like. Apple lawyers quickly objected to the cross-examination of Phil Schiller, Apple marketing exec, saying it would require him to divulge confidential information, according to CNET.
