Apple’s battle with Samsung in the UK courts has taken yet another new twist, after the US group was reprimanded by a judge for posting a statement on its website that was too cheeky, writes Robert Cookson.

I was dubious when Samsung launched the first Galaxy Note last year because it seemed to fit into neither the smartphone category nor the emerging tablet market. Its 5.3in screen was bigger than on most smartphones but it was only half the size of popular tablets. But then I began to appreciate its virtues, particularly the precision of the touchscreen and the electronic stylus (or “S Pen”), as well as the bigger screen for watching video or running navigation and other apps.
