After the massive win against Samsung, Apple looks to slit the throat of Samsung. They added new devices to their earlier complaint against the Galaxy Nexus. A total of 21 devices have made their way into the amended complaint, devices ranging from the mid range Captivate Glide to the Galaxy Note to even the “built to avoid lawsuits” Galaxy S III. The full list from the complaint:
These infringing Samsung products include the at least 21 new smartphones, media players, and tablets that Samsung has released beginning in August 2011 and continuing through August 2012. Specifically, Samsung has imported into, offered for sale, or sold in the United States at least the following products, each of which infringes Apple’s patent rights: the Galaxy S III, Galaxy S III – Verizon, Galaxy Note, Galaxy S II Skyrocket, Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch, Galaxy S II, Galaxy S II – T-Mobile, Galaxy S II – AT&T, Galaxy Nexus, Illusion, Captivate Glide, Exhibit II 4G, Stratosphere, Transform Ultra, Admire, Conquer 4G, and Dart smartphones, the Galaxy Player 4.0 and Galaxy Player 5.0 media players, and the Galaxy Note 10.1, Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and Galaxy Tab 8.9 tablets.
The devices are accused of infringing on four Apple patents: ’647 Data Detectors, ’721 Slide to Unlock, ’172 Word Completion and the ’604 Universal Search. The complaint was initially lodged back in February 2012 but the Cupertino company just added the versions of the Note and Galaxy S III. mostly because they’re selling like ice water in hell.
We’ll keep an eye on how Samsung handles this one, expect them to come out swinging though. What do you geeks think about all of this? Is Apple being a good company by claiming it’s “suffering irreparable harm” or just being a bully trying to eliminate competition? Hit those comments and let us hear it!
