The bitter dispute between Apple and Samsung has been going on for ages now, and it seems there may be no end in sight with some new developments coming yesterday. It is being reported that Apple is now going after the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note among other devices in its latest move.
As it is being reported by Cnet following its recent victory against Samsung in a California court, Apple has now filed an amended complaint with the same court, but in a separate case. The amendments have added the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note to the ever increasing list of hardware that Apple says infringe its intellectual property.
The original complaint was first made back in February and included seventeen Samsung devices that were supposedly breaking patents owned by the iPhone maker. Apple looked to ban the Galaxy S3 back in June, but this was put on hold due to a packed court schedule.
Apple stated in the amended complaint that “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”.
The company lists the Galaxy Note, Galaxy S3, and Verizon Galaxy S3, along with the Galaxy Note 10.1 among the other devices. It would be a big victory for Apple if it could get a ban on the Samsung Galaxy S3 as the device is selling really well around the world, which according to a number of analysts has helped the company to increase its lead over Apple.
Sales of the original Galaxy Note have been pretty strong as well since it was first released last year, but only yesterday we told you that Samsung may be planning to make an offensive move itself if Apple decides to release a future iPhone that has 4G LTE compatibility, as the company holds a lot of patents for the technology.
Do you think Apple has a worthy case against the Samsung Galaxy S3?
