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!
Apple loses Australian ban on Galaxy Tab 10.1!

It seems the battle for Australia’s tablet sales is far from over. A couple of months ago, Apple had won a preliminary injunction against Samsung, blocking sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 At the time, all seemed lost for Sammy but not anymore. Australia’s High Court not only lifted the injunction but they also smacked Apple in the face by denying their motion for special leave, something that would again block the competing tablet. Crocodile Dundee‘s mates rejoiced as they can shortly buy a non-crApple tablet!
Samsung wasted no time in announcing their plans to get the device into eager hands. Promising it in time for Christmas shopping, they also dropped details on a 16GB Wifi only model for $579 and a 16GB 3G\Wifi for $729. That’s Australian bucks by the way folks. Apple is starting to feel the pinch as courts are not falling for their crap anymore. Does this mean the lawsuit is over? Doubtful as this is Apple we’re talking about. Any Android Geeks out there doing the “Whoop Whoop” at the recent news? Does it feel like karmic retribution? Hit the jump and let us know in the comments below!
Kindle Fire Becomes Second Choice

It seems that Amazon has a real hit on their hands. According to a recent survey conducted by ChangeWave Research, 22 percent of buyers this holiday season plan on purchasing the Kindle Fire.
The research company surveyed 3,043 consumers who strongly stated that they planned on buying the Kindle Fire. 65 percent of those consumers stated that they would be purchasing the iPad 2 from Apple. This clearly shows that Apple is still the dominant force in the tablet world but it seems that the Kindle is akin to The Little Engine That Could. Slowly picking up speed and lowering the price makes this tablet seemingly a must have for the holiday season.
Other tablet considerations mentioned in the survey were the Samsung Galaxy Tab, which garnered 4 percent of the responses. The new Nook Tablet was not included in the survey.

All of us are waiting ever so patiently for our wonderful 3.2 update for our Wi-Fi Galaxy Tab…or are we. Seems that the early adopters of the update are seeing some more than serious issues with the update. Looks as if some people are loosing full wireless ability…um on a Wi-Fi tab (no good), others are reporting that they are loosing auto-rotate or bluetooth functions as well. These are pretty serious features on this tab. So for those of you out there foaming at the mouth for the update….might want to sit back and slow your roll on this one. Let us know if you have seen any of these issues on your 10.1 in the comments after the jump.
